Strange stretching sensation

So, one of things that has frustrated me through the last couple years of my training is becoming more aware that my breath/breathing was not able to reach my perineum. Sure, the was some slight sensation but mostly I ended up with increased pressure and agitation my solar plexus. As much I can, I've been following Sifu's instructions and I've recently been aware of some new feelings. When I relax in a new way and use the relaxed belly to make room for the breath as I inhale, I feel a stretch in my back just below the kidneys.

Recent body changes

Recently, I've had a lot going on in my life which has affected my training. However, I have continued with some training, especially focusing on the breath and some form work. In spite of my down tick in training I've had some new physical, sensorial experiences. First, and a little gross, my bowel movements are faster and easier, not that they were very difficult. Second, and more interesting, I was in church and during the music part of the service I could feel something like resonant vibrations in different places inside my torso.
