What is Maranatha Yoga?

Maranatha Yoga is an emerging community of people who want to explore what it means to connect body, mind and spirit through a combination of yoga postures, mantra and meditation. Based on Christian spirituality, Maranatha Yoga is open to all, no matter what their beliefs or background.

This is a friendly, relaxed and open space, where you can be yourself alongside others exploring what it means to connect with all parts of our human experience: our bodies, our emotions, our thoughts, our spiritual selves.

Each time we gather we will be guided through a series of yoga postures and movements inspired by spiritual texts, the purpose of which is to harmonise and unite us for a period of silence together in meditation.  Maranatha is an Aramaic phrase meaning ‘Come Lord’, this simple mantra is used to focus the mind and connect body, mind and spirit.  This offers a space to disconnect from hectic lifestyles and reconnect with ourselves.

Participants can work through the movements within their own capabilities, and engage with the mantra and meditation as they feel comfortable.
