Sanskrit/Hindi words for Ashtanga Yoga

Finally I had time to make a list of some Sanskrit words that you need to understand the names of the Asthanga Yoga Asanas!

Since I made the list in India, I asked some friends to tell me the name of the words in Hindi, just to compare.

There might be some mistakes in the list, please let me know in the comments.
