Verbos

Most instructors in the Americas will use the plural command form for ustedes when giving a group yoga class. This form is not difficult, but generally requires a little knowledge of verb conjugation to understand completely.

The command form requires the opposite present tense ending, so, if you have a verb such as inhalara regular -ar verb, the opposite third person ending will be the -en ending. Here I have used the ustedes form, as an instructor would when addressing a yoga class with more than one person. Command forms differ for the person/s receiving the instruction. Therefore, if you are giving a singular, private course to someone, just take off the -n, and your command will be in the singular form.

Inhalar–>Inhalen profundamente. 

Any irregularity in the present tense yo form of a verb will take place in the command form as well. For example: tener→tengo→I have→tenga/n. The opposite -ar endings are applied to this -er verb in order to show that instruction is being given.

Poner→pongo→ponga
