I have just moved to Spain and really want to get back to a proper Yoga practice. There is a Bikram studio 10 mins form my house and I really want to go back to practice but I Speak hardly any spanish. I know the series well as I use to practice when I lived in England. Do you think that it would be possible to benefit from a practice even though I wouldn't understand the majority of instruction? I'd really appreciate your opinions. many thanks. Tink

don't worry at all.

Just follow. My opinion is the more you are free from mind the more you will gain in yoga!

Hi Tink,

I agree with Onestebeyond, you'll probably get more out of it.

Plus, you'll probably learn Spanish quicker.

I moved to Italy in 2000. Knew about 50 words. I regularly attended a yoga meditation service several times a week. On Sundays they'd have a long 30 minute talk. I remember at the beginning I found it very difficult. I only understood a few words. After two years I was understanding 80%.

A lot of people say, watch lots of TV and you'll learn the language. I never touched the TV in Italy and learned the language by reading and interacting with people. After two years I excelled, while my fellow Canadians were still stubling over verb tenses.
