Kum Nye Relaxation

Kum Nye is a little known means of promoting confidence, power, and endurance through the stimulation and transformation of the body and our mental energy.

To many Kum Nye is like a form of meditation, yet it is a physical form of movement which includes subtle yet powerful exercise. It is a useful form of movement which helps to release emotional and physical tensions that are held within the body. Many exercises can help to produce and release physical tensions held deeply within the body. Each exercise can  lead to a sense of release and deep relaxation.

Kum Nye is based on  ancient Tibetan spiritual knowledge developed over 1,500 years ago. Kum Nye Relaxation offers a very effective way for refreshing and revitalising the whole body and mind. It is beneficial for young and old alike with gentle easy-to-follow movement exercises which can relieve tension, heighten energy levels, improve concentration, and help to bring clarity to all of the senses.

Kum Nye introduces the view of body and mind as a naturally integrated whole, offering a more balanced and satisfying approach to experiences based on self appreciation and self-understanding. Basic breathing, massage, and movement exercises can lead to the more advanced exercises which have been translated by Tulku Tarthang (Rinpoche).

Applying the techniques which have been published by Tulku Tarthang in two volumes can, in daily exercise promote a lighter, more cheerful approach to living and working in the modern world.

Movements are generally very slow and gentle, they are suited to all ages and physical abilities.

Sample Practice

Kum Nye  movements  are generally very slow and gentle, they can often induce physical tremors within the body. These tremors are a way of releasing inner tensions. This Kum Nye practice is one example you might like to try which is known as Flying.

To start, sit quietly for a while to rest your mind and body, perhaps for 5 or 10 minutes.

Then gently stand up straight with your feet hip width apart, unlock you knees, almost but not quite bending your knees, allow your arms to rest at your sides, allow your body to relax, (especially the shoulders and stomach). Very slowly allow your arms to rise outwards from your sides keeping them fairly straight but not locked, this can take a few minutes, then very slowly allow your arms to reach up above your head and then very slowly down again. With gentle concentration, this allows the Kum Nye ( subtle body awareness) to grow.

Repeat this exercise a few times, return to sitting and sit or meditate until you feel able to continue regular activity. This single exercise can last between 5 and 15 minutes repeating the exercise 2-3 times only.
