In Christian Meditation, you focus on Christ and his teachings, and Christ's life. For example you could focus on the crucifixion and how much Christ suffered for us. Or you could focus on a quote of Jesus. In Yoga, you focus on your breathing, breathe in breath out, and stay focused on it and eventually you forget about the outside world until reaching a state of peace. Or you can focus on something; love, compassion, a mantra. I believe they are quite similar, in both you try to "reach God."
The difference is how many times you are required to fall to your knees!
christian meditation is diff and has the backing of God but yoga doesn,t
CHristian Meditation was first practiced by the Desert Fathers, 3rd century Christians. It is claimed they even meditated on one word and repeated that like a mantra, long before it became Hindu practice. The power of these Desert Fathers was such that in those days all of Egypt turned Christian. Christian Meditation, nowadays practiced under the name"Soaking"is the strongest form of prayer a Christian can have. If you are interested in more, please write me,

As a Christian, is there a difference between a testimony of Christ and conversion?To me a testimony of Jesus Christ is a belief that Christ is the son of God, but conversion or being converted means that you have not only been baptized by one having the authority to baptize, but that you have...
