 The pause is always made at the end of the EXPIRATION, which should not be forced. Before practicing this exercise, get used to breathing comfortably through your nose. The pause is increased from 2 to 2 steps until it reaches more or less 20 steps (Do not do more than 20) and goes down in the same way until it reaches 2 pause steps. Always go only up to a number of steps that is comfortable for you.
