Kum Nye is a subtle sensitive approach to yoga from the Tibetan tradition. Gentle exercises, breathing techniques and self-massage work together to develop vitality and balance. The exercises are traditionally used for deep relaxation, self-healing and as a preparation for meditation.
 
Shamatha meditation practice enables us to begin to let go of distractions and allows us to focus on one thing. In Tibetan Relaxation and Healing Exercises we create sensations through movement, massage, sound, and even with visualization – these sensations then become the object for meditation.
 
So Kum Nye is essentially meditation interspersed with movement exercises. When we move, we move the sensation(s) that we habitually (and conceptually) call the body. We then relax into, and expand, these feelings and sensations. On a deep level the practice is as much a form of mindfulness as it is a physical exercise – a form of meditative movement, guided less by thinking and more by what we’re feeling. It’s a way of becoming embodied - more sensitive and present to our body in all its vitality and wholeness.
 
Kum refers not to our physical body but to our presence in space, the sum total of our embodiment. Nye means to stimulate and massage.
 
Through accumulated tensions we have lost contact with our body; we live largely in the head. By listening to & relaxing into the sensation of the body & the breath in our Kum Nye yoga practice (& eventually in our everyday lives) we can expand our awareness & become (re)embodied.
 
This embodiment is a birthright & leads to an ease, lightness, flexibility & deep sense of well-being.
 
Kum Nye yoga was brought to the West by Lama Tarthang Tulku.
