2. After filling the breath, we have to hold it inside the body, after that we will pull our anal space upwards from where the bowel movement is done.

3. Till the breath holds, the anus will be pulled upwards.

4. Keep one thing in particular, as long as you can hold your breath, hold it smoothly. When you cannot hold your breath, first you will loosen the Anal space and then do normal activities in the breath.

3. After exhaling, we will pull our Anal space upwards and take care that you do not fill the breath inside the body.

4. In Bahya Kumbhaka also we have to first release the Anal space and then fill the breath inside the body.

Practising without Kumbhaka:-

2. Then you pull your Anal space upwards and at this time you allow your breathing to continue as normal.

3. In the beginning, you will not be able to stretch your Anal space for a long time, but gradually with regular practice, you will be able to do it for a long time.
