Kum Nye Basics:

Kum Nye is a Tibetan practice introduced into North America in the 1970's by Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche, who introduced these monastery practices to his students.  Practiced world-wide, Kum Nye deepens our body-mind connection, establishes profound relaxation, and harmonizes and integrates our energy. The result is alert calmness. 

This course will give you the tools to develop your own daily practice, and introduces some of the key concepts of the practice.  Enjoy practicing at your own pace, learning and integrating as you go along.  Share your progress with the instructor, or in a forum with other students. 



This class is modular, divided into ten chapters of about ten minutes in length, so that you can proceed at your own pace.






"Kum Nye is unlike any other yoga that I've ever done. I'm grateful for the simplicity of it. The value I've received from doing Kum Nye  supported me in being centered, and helping my body release energy blocks. That process also supports me every single day in my morning spiritual exercises." CK


"Don McGinnis is a dedicated, skillful and insightful instructor, able to integrate some profound Eastern concepts with various Western body work practices of the last 30 years or so.
I enjoy his classes which are always convivial, welcoming questions and dialogues between students and with the instructor." JM

I found that Don is amazingly sensitive to subtle states of body-mind and super supportive to the whole process of seeing and releasing states of distress. I have had the sense that he has done this kind of work himself, and therefore he has both a comfort level with the process and with the distress, and it doesn’t faze him, He is able to give a feeling of confidence that this process of going through the distress has a successful outcome and confidence that people can go through that process and feel that I was in a safe supportive environment that nothing was pushed on me and total acceptance."  NA
