Kum Nye Teacher Training:
Global Kum Nye – Three Levels
Learn to teach Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche’s Kum Nye books
with Arnaud Maitland
We are happy to re-announce Global Kum Nye Teacher Training for anyone in the world interested in refreshing or deepening their study and/or who wishes to become a Kum Nye teacher. The program will authorize teachers to lead programs based on Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche’s three Kum Nye Books: Kum Nye Tibetan Yoga (Formally called Kum Nye Relaxation), Joy of Being, and Kum Nye Dancing.
These trainings will be given life, by webinar, so everyone can join in this unique training wherever you are located. We are committed to make Kum Nye available globally and authorize you to share Kum Nye with others. You can also take this program to start your individual Kum Nye practice or deepen your love for Kum Nye without becoming an authorized teacher.
As it seems that Kum Nye is greatly beneficial for just about everyone who comes into contact with it, we are looking for people who are interested in sharing Kum Nye with others, in their personal or professional lives. Our goal is to make Kum Nye available throughout the world. You can help!
