Stomach pain when chanting

Post by yinyangkoi »

Hello, during chanting my stomach starts to hurt, sometimes I even have to stop. It happens just 10 minutes in the chanting. Should I see a doctor or is that normal from chanting?

Possible holding tension due to the changes in breathing and musculature when chanting.

Fabio Andrico has some good videos on how to open one's breathing without tension; when you experientially know how to do it right, you'll be able to spot where you go wrong when doing the chanting.
