What is Maranatha Yoga?

 

'By the Yoga of meditation and contemplation the wise saw the power of God, hidden in his own creation.' Svetasvatara Upanishad, Part 1 (500BC). 'The Kingdom of God is within you...like a treasure hidden in a field.' Luke 17:21, Matthew 13:44. Maranatha Yoga uses postures and movements inspired by spiritual texts, the purpose of which is to harmonise and unite for a period of silence in meditation. Maranatha is an Aramaic phrase 'Come Lord', and this simple mantra is used to focus the mind and connect body, mind and spirit.

Join Christine Pickering author and creator of Maranatha Yoga, practicioner and tutor trainer with the British Wheel of Yoga for over 40 years for a taster day on Saturday 16th November 2019 at Penrith in Cumbria. The day will be specifically tailored to the needs of qualifed, experienced yoga teachers, or those going through qualification, who are Christians looking to integrate aspects of Christian spirituality into their general yoga classes. Maranatha Yoga has been developed as an integral blend of both yoga and Christian traditions and the taster day will be shaped by a comprehensive practice of this approach inspired by key texts and prayers from the Christian tradition as well as from authentic yoga texts. The intention is to demonstrate how classical yoga techniques that fully engage the body, breath, mind and spirit, may be assimilated into a form of Christian prayer and worship in which we offer our whole selves to God. The purpose is to prepare for spiritual journey to the centre of one's own heart in the practice of Christian meditation. For more information and to book please click here.
