We live in gravity and the effects of gravity are experienced as a brake on our movements. Four pairs of physical senses are explored: flexibility and stiffness, physical strength and weakness, bodily heaviness and lightness, feeling swollen or reduced. Two people help narrate the various experiences of living in gravitational pressure: a yoga teacher who is expert at exploring flexibility, and someone who has a systemic disease—lupus—who lives with a changes in pressure senses.
