A Maranatha yoga practitioner and facilitator for over 30 years, Christine Pickering pens an illustrated, practical handbook that incorporates Christian spirituality with postures and meditations as a means of connecting with our spiritual selves.
The physicality of the asanas with the mindful, meditative qualities of Christian reflections allows the reader to connect with their inner selves and reconcile the misconceptions regarding yoga in Christianity.
The book can be used by individuals as a companion to support and sustain their personal practice at home, as a guide for yoga practitioners/teachers looking to integrate Christian spirituality with their routine practice or classes.
