Do yoga or practise yoga?

Do yoga or practise yoga?
 
Hi All

I would always collocate "do" with yoga but is "practise" valid too?

As the Spanish use the word "practicar" with sports they tend to rely on this direct translation


And another question:

 L1 interference is when your first language interferes with learning a second language, is there a term for the other way round, ie. your second language starts making you doubt your first one, coz I īve got it bad!!!

Yes, either word works with yoga.
 
Maybe L2 interference? I learned English grammar much better when I studied German, because of the many similarities.

If "L2 interference" is not a term already, it should be.  I can fully empathize with Colibrita--spending most of my non-classroom time speaking L2 definitely affetcs my L1.
