Opening the Senses

Kum Nye – Tibetan Yoga Online

practice with others  from your home

6 Classes & 2 Meet & talks

May 4 – 29

This month will we explore the Senses.
Open them, and experience new possibilities.

The Classes will be given in English, and/or in Swedish,
depending on the need of the participants. If there is someone
who doesn´t speak Swedish, English will be the main language during the classes.

A  Program for Balance and Flow

Do you sometimes have a wish to start with, or be more regular with,  meditation, yoga or a mindfulness practice, but never get around to do it?  What´s often 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. 6 classes of practice, together with others. And several possibilities to interact and ask questions.

The classes build on each other, but it is perfectly fine to do one per week if that suits you better. This program gives you the option to choose how you want to participate.

Kum Nye brings 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 being brings. In Kum Nye we sensitivly attune to the feelings in the body, which gradually releases the hold of our fixed patterns and starts to melt tensions. The energy that was held will begin to flow freely again, and we can let it integrate and be an active part of our being and system.

Slowly will we notice more joy, which is one expression of our inner nature.

 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. 

You can buy the book from Dharma Publishing and from Amazon.

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 we can send to you.

You do not need the book to be able to participate in this program, but it is of big help if you want to study Kum Nye in depth.

The training is lead by Stig Albansson, a long time practitioner and group leader 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 and renewal of interest started to happened when 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. But I am still amazed how strong the group field often gets. It feels like we are practicing together in the same space even though we are in different places and parts of the world.

The Kum Nye Intensive Online includes:

  • 6 classes where we practice together. We meet online through a computer, phone or tablet. 
  • 2  Meet & Talks where you can share experiences and ask questions about the practice.
  • Documentation of the practices we do will be sent out after each class.
  • The support of practising in a small group, which makes such a big difference.
  • Suggested practices to do inbetween classes.
  • A private Facebook group for questions, discussions, and information.
  • New for this month is that there is an option to get video recordings of the classes

 Here’s what you’ll get:

What is listed here is pointers, towards where the emphasis of the practice will aim.
What each one of us will experience is of course not possible to say.

The main thing with these classes is that they provide a way to get support, through practice together with others.

You will be given instructions during the sessions, and your understanding will deepen the more you participate.
Even after one class will you be able to continue to practice Kum Nye on your own, between classes. 

Week 1


Class 1 – Thursday 4

The first class will be introductory if new people sign up. We will get a sense of how Kum Nye works, and how to practice it. For them who have been doing Kum Nye before is it chance to reset the practice, and see how much that has changed.

Thursday 7.00-8.30 pm CET (central europe time). 

Week 2


Class 3 – Thursday 11
Class 2 – Monday 8

Week 2 will we continue with regular Kum Nye practices and go more into working with the senses. Which often can have surprising effects.

 Monday & Thursday 7.00-8.30 pm CET

Week 3


Meet & Talk – Monday 15

Class 4 – Thursday 18

This week will build on the last one and explore more how the senses work.  And also introduce more practices focused on the breath.

Monday & Thursday 7.00-8.30 pm CET

Week 4 

Class 5 – Monday 22

Class 6 – Thursday 25

Week 5

Meet & Talk – Monday 29

With the senses more open we will easier be able to experience both calm and clear states. And the borders between inner and outer can melt, given a more unified and whole experience of ourselves and the world.

Mondays & Thursday 7.00-8.30 pm CET

The classes are mainly focused on practice. So the Meet & Talk’s are a nice chance to meet the group, share experiences and ask the questions that may have arisen during you own practice.

What others are saying…

”The group container is strong. This shows how deep the virtual space can be. Without leaving the house :)”

For me Kum Nye is an important tool to embody higher insights. To walk the talk more authentically in every day life. The more I feel me, the more I can feel the people around me. The more compassion I have  with my difficulties the more helpful I am for my surrounding.
True love begins in my self and Kum Nye can support me in cultivating this love in a very gentle way.

”When I first started practising Kum Nye with Stig it started out as a happy surprice for me.”

I had been practising qigong and meditation daily for years and thought that I knew all about moving energy in the body and finding truth, secrets, stillness and peace inside. What Kum Nye came with, was a form of a very natural and easy practise, that took me to places of me so close but yet where i had never been. Stig guides the group with such softness and safeness, we are free to follow but also free to walk our own ways. Kum Nye is a treasure hunt and a blessing! I don’t even exaggerate! With Stig as a guide I am working on my own in a safe space. Digging for my own gold inside, that frees me. To practise at home in front of the computer is fantastic! The energy of the group and space we practise in together is very present. In fact we practise in a unlimited space that frees me and takes me home to myself.

“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.

“Stig is leading the group in a well-organized and structured but also empathic and humble way”

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.

”Jag gillar mycket att alla kan delta oavsett hur lång erfarenhet man har..”

Efter att ha deltagit i praktikgrupp under ledning av Stig Albansson i två terminer märker jag att mina energinivåer både stärkts och stabiliserats. Jag är betydligt oftare i nuet och känner oftare och tydligare förnimmelser i kroppen än tidigare. Effekten av en klass sitter i länge.
Stig Albansson är en alldeles utmärkt och mycket engagerad lärare som med fingertoppskänsla sätter ihop en serie rörelser efter ett tema som han presenterar idéen bakom innan klassen. Ofta är det just precis det jag behöver den dagen. Han är ödmjuk i sin undervisning och förklarar ingående både nya rörelser och de eventuella hinder man kan stöta på. Han återkommer ofta till att det är förslag han kommer med och att vi gör det som känns rätt för oss.”

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?
No, the technique we are using is quite forgiving. Most computers and tablets which you use for other things will do. It might be good to see if the loadspeakers are ok on your device or if you want to add extra speakers. Most people don´t have a problem with this. The most critical thing is that your internet connection is decent.
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.
