What is Maranatha Yoga?

Maranatha Yoga is for those who want to explore what it means to connect body, mind and spirit through a combination of yoga postures, mantra and meditation. Intersected with Christian Spirituality, Maranatha Yoga is accessible to all, no matter what their beliefs or background. Maranatha Yoga UK (MYUK) is a Zoom community of online participants. Maranatha Yoga Cumbria relates to in person sessions, mainly in Kendal on a monthly basis. Maranatha UK holds popup Zoom sessions throughout the year. MYUK also holds in person sessions at regional and national events and conferences on request.

These spaces explore what it means to connect with all parts of our human experience: our bodies, our emotions, our thoughts and our spiritual selves. A typical Maranatha Yoga class begins with words of welcome to help people relax, set aside their daily worries and focus on the aims of the session. This is followed by a warm-up sequence which celebrates the wonder of our creation. Traditional yoga postures are then practised whilst reflecting on key scriptural texts or prayers, thereby familiarising us with the words and creating within us a deeper understanding of their meaning. The session finishes with a time in silent meditation and a closing prayer. Contact us for more information about a Taster Session.
