You can yank a paragraph with y}. This will not yank all the methods if you have a blank line though.

The excellent add-on suite Python-mode includes some key commands to navigate classes, methods, and function blocks.

  • To yank a method: yaM (inner method: yiM)

  • To yank a class: yaC

There are other handy motions, like moving from function-to-function (]]). See the complete list of keys for more.
