5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing moves, 18 Sept. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kum Nye: Waking Up for Beginners (Hardcover)
I came across this book over a year and a half ago and started doing these exercises but after a couple of months I found myself trying the five Tibetans as well. I left the Kum Nye, only to find that after a period of two months I was stiffer, more irritable and not so full of life.

I then went back to Kum Nye...I have now been doing Kum Nye nearly every morning for a year and will certainly continue to do so.

The exercise regime seems similar to yoga as each of the eight positions are to be held for two minutes whilst you concentrate on your breathing. They, however, are not as easy as they look on paper and I still have some difficulty, on some days, keeping some of the positions for the two minutes. Believe me, this is hard work if you are doing it properly. As Stephanie Wright suggests, it is best to start with one move and slowly add the others until you are doing all eight. Remember that this is no race and that there is no need to rush to do all the moves at once. You will still notice the difference.

Initially, old pains can come back to bother you but keep at it and they will pass.

Posture will improve, you will strenghthen muscles without having to go to the gym and, by the way, contrary to what people think I don't do sit ups.

All in all, I enjoy doing Kum Nye in the morning and feel it does give me a bit of extra zest in the mornings.

One last word of advice...Take the phone of the hook whilst doing Kum Nye.
