Good evening,

Lithuanian and Pali (as well as Lithuanian and Sanskrit) certainy share a lot of word stems. From what you have posted here I can provide similar Lithuanian words:
pāda (foot) - pėda
hemanta (winter) - žiema (pronounced as 'hyema'). H and Ž (zh) are intelligible between Latin and Lithuanian: Humanus - Žmogus, Humus - Žemė, Hibernate - Žiemoti (same root as in hemanta/winter)
yoga - jungas (pron. youngass). the root jung- in Lithuanian means to connect, concatenate (su-jung-ti), subdue (pa-jung-ti)

as well as the words from Ukraininian (which is closer to Lithuanian than English, yet Lithuanian is probably closer to Sanskrit/Pali than to Ukrainian)
