A PROGRAM for BALANCE
Do you sometimes think that you want to start with a meditation, yoga or mindfulness practice, but you just never get around to it? Often what is needed is support. We need the company of others to do what we know is best for us. Here is your chance to get just that. 10 classes of practice, together with others. You choose which ones you join. All or a select few. They do build on each other, but it is perfectly fine to do for example one per week if that suits you better. This program gives you the option to choose how you want to participate.
Kum Nye gives relaxation, and release of tension.
We are busy, with many things to accomplish each day. It seems like both our mind and body needs relaxation, to loosen the stress our way of living brings. In Kum Nye we sensitively atttune to the feelings in the body, which gradually releases the hold of our fixed patterns and holdings.
What Is Kum Nye?
This is how that question is answered in the description of the book we use:
Kum Nye – Tibetan Yoga, A complete Guide to Health and Well-Being, 115 Exercises & Massages by Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche.
Based on the Tibetan medical system, Kum Nye consists of exercises developed by Rinpoche to relieve stress and promote the deep relaxation necessary to experience the full benefits of meditation. It is both a natural healing aid and a means for deepening meditation. An effective means to become fully comfortable in our embodiment, Kum Nye consists of breathing, massage, postures and movement exercises that release blockages and allow energy to flow unobstructed through body and mind, restoring the wholeness of being.
Kum Nye integrates and balances physical and psychological approaches to harmonize the energies of body and mind. The deep relaxation produced releases a vibrant, intense flow of feeling that renders all experience richer, healthier and more beautiful.
For the moment is it difficult to find the book in Sweden. You can search at these places. and if you can´t find it online we have a few copies in Gothenburg we can send to you.
You do not need the book to be able to participate in this program, but it is a great source if you want to dive into Kum Nye in depth.
The training is lead by Stig Albansson, a long time practitioner and teacher of Kum Nye.
I came in contact with Kum Nye at a six month program/retreat for Human Development at the Nyingma Institute in Berkeley California -96/97. It directly spoke to me and has stayed with me since then. I started to lead groups when I returned to Sweden. Mostly in Göteborg where I live. The people in the groups have always expressed that there is something special about Kum Nye. Which I agree with. There has been a deepening during the years and a big shift of understanding started to happened after I participated in the Kum Nye Teacher Training lead by Arnaud Maitland, director of Dharma Publishing, in October 2015.
I have participated in many different kind of online classes during the last 5-6 years, and to work online feels very natural nowadays. At the same time I am amazed how it is possible to feel the group online and participants comment on it. It is almost like we are sitting in the same space and are connected in a big energy field of some kind.
One thing that is important to mention is that whatever value and benefit there is in these classes does not depend on me. There is something with Kum Nye that just works for those who feel drawn to it.
The Kum Nye Intensive Online includes:
- 10 classes where we practice together. We meet online through a computer, phone or tablet.

What others are saying…
“Stig is leading the group in a well-organized and structured but also empathic and humble way”
His long experience show itself in the grounded and stable feeling he is coming from. His long experience is sensed in the down to earth, grounded feeling in the sessions. It creates a sense of trust that allows you to go deeper into your own unfolding experiences. Stig gives guidelines and recommendations but there are no demands of accomplishment. This means that the process can develop in a way which suits one´s current shape and helps in working with whatever one encounters at the moment.
Patrik Lilja, member of the practice group in Gothenburg, Sweden.
“Som deltagare i den här serien yogapass är jag väldigt nöjd”
Det är behändigt att praktisera hemma och det kompletterar den vanliga yogan.
Jag har lärt mig mycket av Stig och fortsätter gärna om det blir fler tillfällen.
Margareta O, deltagare i praktikgruppen i Göteborg
samt Onlineklasserna sommar & höst 2016
“Jag gillar mycket att alla kan delta oavsett hur lång erfarenhet man har..”

Frequently asked questions
do I need to have some former experience?
No, not at all. As long as you have an interest and openness to explore something new, that is all it takes.
So an open mind, and a decent internet connection for your computer, mobil or tablet and you´re good to go!
Do I need a fancy computer?
Will other people see me?
If you want. The technology gives this option and it is a big help for me leading the class to see you. It also is adding to the sense of the group field if you are visible. But no, you do not need to be visible if you don´t want to. A middle way is to have your camera on in the beginning and in the end, and stop it during the practice if you so prefer.
Can you explain in a few words what this is about?
I shall try. We come together through our computers and will start to sit for a while. Guidance will be given the whole time. We will be invited to put our attention inside us. To notice more and more of the feelings and sensations in the body.
It may sound strange, but just by doing that, things will start to happen. We are then spending the rest of the class doing standing and sitting exercices, and working with the breath.
And, we often move very slow, so we can notice more of our inner experience.
What is the connection between Kum Nye and buddhism?
Kum Nye comes from a tibetan teacher who has been trained in the tibetan buddhist tradition. But Kum Nye is regarded as a discipline on its own. Something that is developed especially for the need we as westerners have. You don´t need to be interested in Buddhism at all to do Kum Nye, and you don´t need to believe in anything. All you need to do is practice and feel what´s happening inside of you.
Where can I read more about Kum Nye?
You can go to www.kumnyeyoga.com. All I know and speak about comes from the books by Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche. And from workshops and discussions with teachers from other centers. In recent years has the explanations given by Tarthang Tulku´s senior student Arnaud Maitland been of tremenous help. And it never stops, there is so much more to explore.
Arnaud Maitland and other people from Dharma Publishing are regularly giving talks and trainings in meditation and Kum Nye. Go to www.dharmapublishing.com and see what´s on the agenda.
If you really want to go deep with your Kum Nye practice is a retreat the best option. You can see what Dharma Publishing is offering on their website.
