The No Bullshit guide to what yoga poses should be called.....

Does anyone actually remember the real names of the yoga poses we regularly bend ourselves into in class?

For us it’s the same every week, we’re just about keeping up with the sequence, when the teacher gently whispers a word we’ve never heard of…and we’re lost.

You’re welcome.
