    2) Sit in a relaxed position, upright position.
    3) Take a small INHALE and EXHALE.
    4) Now, take a small INHALE
    5) HOLD or PINCH your NOSE and count 1001, 1002….(1001 = 1sec)
    6) Try holding for at least 25-30 seconds or more. Hold till STRONG URGE TO BREATH.
    7) Release your nose, take a deep breath IN and RELAX, then exhale slowly in small bursts to finish off full exhale.
