Words

Where I lack an adequate translation I use words such as pranayama, pada bandha, mula bandha, and wuji.

But I name in English where possible to avoid suggesting false antiquity. I like the clarity of Yang style tai chi that teaches mostly in the local language.

I also happily borrow, such as constant bear. And happily modify, invent, and name such as pyramid rest. Names are a convenience not an incantation.
