The name Kum Nyé is sometimes confusing because there are several methods of Kum Nyé.
kum = the body, existence (how to take body) / nye = massage or interaction.
In Kum Nyé yoga, we activate the Kum body, stimulating the feeling / sensation that is Nyé.
We therefore use our sensations to activate the energy body, but through movement and intention, and not through touch as is the case in traditional massage.
The advantage is first of all that we therefore learn to be autonomous. There is no need to be 2 people.
But the most important point is that this method allows to work on the channels located in the depths of the energy body and to come directly to touch the emotionally sensitive areas whose energy has frozen over time.
Touch massage, the one everyone is used to, primarily targets the surface channels.
Here we go to the depths of the individual, to touch the depths of his consciousness.

Kum Nyé can often be compared to a moving meditation.
Kum Nye has nothing to do with yoga as it is understood in the West. It is about a spiritual practice associating a form of energetic "psychotherapy". Kum Nye includes a whole series of simple but effective therapeutic exercises intended to relieve stress, transmute "negative behavioral structures", promote balance and health, and make our lives more enjoyable.
Meditation and Tibetan Yoga Kum Nyé, the yoga of mindfulness and energy
kum = the body, existence (how to take body) / nye = massage or interaction.
In Kum Nyé, we activate the Kum body, stimulating the feeling / sensation that is Nyé.
The exceptional value of this Tibetan healing system is that it integrates physical and psychological approaches to wellness, teaching us to integrate body and mind into all of our activities. Kum Nye leads to a feeling of vitality and well-being beyond what can be experienced in other physical systems of exercise. Postures and movements, as well as self-massage and breathing practices, relax the body, calm the breath and calm the mind, making Kum Nye an effective practice for deepening the body. meditation.
Kum Nye includes stillness, movement, postures, breathing exercises, self-massage techniques, and a little visualization.
The practices focus on the three types of tension held in the body:
blockages in energy channels,
the nodes in the chakras.
As these tensions melt away, the life energies begin to flow more fully through the body. In this process, the flow of energy removes the filters of perceptions and we begin to feel more purely, rather than filtering the experience through our thoughts and memories.
Thus, Kum Nye is both a healing practice and an excellent preparation for establishing and maintaining inner calm and clarity, the basics of samatha and the practice of Vipassana. Kum Nye establishes a feeling of wholeness in which calmness is easy to detect. When we enter stillness, meditation begins.
Through Kum Nye, we reconstruct the inner architecture of the subtle body energy system.

The Benefits and Experience Levels of Kum Nyé Yoga
The purpose of this yoga, is to allow the practitioner to be in contact with the reality of his own nature.
This yoga facilitates deeper and deeper degrees of relaxation and offers us 3 levels of progression: Pacification - Transformation - Liberation.
All the exercises are ways to communicate with our feelings, our inner energies, and to amplify them. Each exercise can be experienced under the three very distinct levels of relaxation:
The first level, pacification. The body awakens and communicates with the spirit. This first level, superficial, is what one feels in an obvious way on the physical or emotional level as freshness or heat, joy or sadness, a painful sensation or of relaxation, tingling, tingling, ... These are surface sensations, they are located in specific places in the body and we are aware that we are experiencing these sensations during exercise. By really paying attention to these initial sensations, we can go to a deeper level.
The second level, the transformation. We are here in a feeling of greater density and consistency which results in a kind of restraint which prevents the flow of energy from circulating. By concentrating, we will learn to dissolve it. We then touch on a gradual thawing of the blockages of the recurring mental patterns of our structure. These energies retained by melting regenerate and circulate again. We feel lighter and free inside. This second level pays more attention to these feelings or initial feelings, so we use them to sharpen our perception which makes it possible to detect blockages in the energy flow. As energy blockages cannot be defined in emotional or physical terms, we are talking about three characteristics: restraint, resistance and hardness. This layer of perception is more difficult to "touch" than the first, however we can, by concentrating, without forcing and gently, remove blockages. One then has the impression that the exercise is being carried out on its own, although the awareness of the “me” perceiving the sensation remains, although it may be felt less firmly.
The third level, liberation. It arises when our true potential is expressed freely. All the residues of the conditioning are transcended. The third level penetrates the sphere of pure energy, of pure experience, where the remnants of structuring are transcended. The feelings and sensations are no longer observed but transformed into a continuum generating an irresistible and infinite joy. We are no longer one with perception, we have become perception.
The origins - Tarthang Tulku
Kum Nye yoga is rooted in an almost twelve-century-old therapeutic doctrine inherent in Tibetan Buddhist culture. In Tibet, Kum Nye yoga has evolved along with other medical practices as a body therapy aimed at restoring humoral balance as well as removing energy blockages at all levels of incarnation. Effective in liberating the body and calming the psycho-emotional sphere, it was also used by Buddhist practitioners as a preliminary to meditation and other complex yoga exercises.
In Tibetan medical texts, the practice of Kum Nye yoga was primarily therapy aimed at removing energy blockages.
Its practices are also described in general terms in the Buddhist texts of the Vinaya (which came from India, these teachings were intended to guide the conduct of monks and nuns) and proposed ways to remedy the fatigue experienced during long periods of meditation. .
Kum Nye yoga is therefore in line with practices inspired by medico-spiritual conceptions which links Tibetan, Indian and Chinese medicine. This kinship gave birth to many disciplines such as Indian yoga and acupuncture, just as it is at the origin of many of the most recent psycho-bodily orientations.
The Kum Nyé yoga presented here has been adapted for Westerners by Tarthang Tulku. A teacher known worldwide for his innovative designs, his visionary spirit and his independence, he is the author of numerous books on Tibetan yoga, Buddhism and personal development.
Tibetan Kum Nyé yoga is a practice dating back thousands of years, rooted in traditional Tibetan medicine.
This body therapy is intended to restore the humoral balance and to remove energy blockages at all levels of incarnation.
Tibetan Kum Nyé yoga is also inscribed in the ancient Buddhist texts of the Vinaya, which enact the rules of life and conduct of Buddhist monks. The practice is recorded there as being intended as a preliminary to meditation.
The principle of Tibetan yoga Kum Nyé is to release the energy blockages resulting from our negative emotions and thus to revive the energy circulation of the body, allowing it to find balance, vitality, health, and well-being through a unification of the body. -mind.

A progressive journey
A thousand-year-old method that has proven itself and devoid of religious aspects
Mindfulness and mental calm are not states that are acquired in 5, 10, 15 sessions of course! It is an inner journey, and it takes time.
I am offering you here a method that is several millennia old, intact because the Tibetans have taken care to preserve it meticulously, and truly transformative, consisting of 156 video sessions of 1 hour each.
In the practice of Tibetan yoga Kum Nyé, an introductory theory of 5 to 10 minutes comes to bring understandings on the energetic body, our relation to the emotions, the way in which the blockages in the body are formed in dependence on the emotions and the thoughts, the way in which the breath acts in the process of relaxation and inner transformation, ...
Each formula is built gradually. This means that each new session builds on the previous one.
You thus walk over the months by integrating a deep understanding of the way in which we operate and you acquire a precise idea of "how you can take back control of yourself, beyond the puppet mode in which we are unconsciously stuck". Negative emotions and thoughts will no longer come to act for you.
The book Tibetan Yoga by Tarthang Tulku, which is initially intended for teachers who have received the method to use the movements explained and described in the book, is thus brought through 156 sessions that you can perform at your own pace, in the form of 1 or 3 sessions per week. You can also test by committing to just 12 sessions to see if it's right for you!
