You will be learning the names of each posture in both English and traditional Sanskrit. Sinceit is difficult to say all postures in English, and many other yoga teacher have different names for the same postures, over time you will prefer to use the Sanskrit names for the postures, as these names are used all over the world. Just as in music Italian is used and in ballet French is used. In this way, students of any nationality can understand a yoga class.
