Everything seems backwards today...

While doing some training this morning I began with the warm up, some standing and then the bitter pill. I noticed a few things.

1. I still get a stressed or strained feeling on the outsides of my knees as if the tendons are being overstretched.

2. I notice that while standing over time it becomes more difficult to breathe down to into Dan tien. Everything begins to feel tight and the breath feels like it has to rise up instead of sinking down.

Feeling High Pressure Hose To Occiput?

Should suspending the crown feel like the back of your neck is a high pressure hose and the pressure is highest at the occiput? Like the neck is a hose and the base of the occiput is a balloon. This feeling is brought on passively not due to force.
