1.34 Or by exhaling and holding the breath

मैत्रीकरुणामुदितोपेक्षणां प्रच्छर्दनविधारणाभ्यां वा प्राणस्य॥३४॥

pracchardana vidharana abhyam va praṇasya

or (samadhi can be reached) by exhaling and holding the breath

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 1.34

pracchardana = exhaling
vidharana = holding
pranasya = of the breath
abhyam = by these two
va = also

This sounds like something that is hopefully accessible to everyone 🙂

I think that it doesn’t have to be too serious or forced and can be fun, like when you breath out on a cold day with friends and can see your breath as all white like smoke.
