Hi Rupert:

What I'm suggesting is that these contradictions be set up so that the muscles are actually relaxed. That's why I said "back off". Back off until it's almost not there. The problem is that without having built up somethings with some preliminary breathing exercises, people won't feel that thing I'd suggest they go toward. So just giving the standing in the hole exercise won't necessarily tell someone the exact way to go, it will just give them a general idea about the topic I'm trying to illuminate.
