Pain underneath solar plexus during diaphragmatic breathing exercise

Hi, all - I bought the course a few days ago and have been grinding volume one on a daily basis since then - I'm deeply enjoying the course so far and believe it was worth every penny.

The only thing that worries me is that during the diaphragmatic breathing exercise where Ken has us do a major scale arpeggio using a quick diaphragmatic breath for each note, after a few scale passes I begin to experience a sharp, cramping pain in the upper abdominal muscles found several inches under the solar plexus. If I slow down and lengthen the notes or take a brief pause between breaths the pain disappears, but it isn't addressed in the video and I'm worried I may be doing something wrong.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is it just the diaphragm / smooth abdominal muscles getting a workout they aren't used do and strengthening over time? Or am I not breathing correctly?
