In some kriyas, broken breaths are used.
How to do it
This type of breathing works
with a ratio for inhale, hold, exhale, and hold. i.e. 1:4:2:0, 4:16:2:0.
Inhale in four strokes through the nose, hold 4 sec, exhale in two strokes, and
hold the air out O.
Another common example is 4:1
ratio. Inhale in 4 equal strokes, like quick sniffs through the nose, and
exhale in one quick stroke through the nose.
