Great practice. Somehow I cannot hold the breath and relax at the same time. It seems if I relax, the muscles used to inflate my body to breathe in the air will relax and some air will come out inevitably. When I do the breathe- out part later, only 40% of the air is still inside me. What am I doing wrong?

This was a great one! I really struggle with getting all the stale air out of my pelvis area and holding the breath for the length you suggested and then exhaling it really helped it all get out. I did this in child pose so I could have extra pressure on my stomach with my knees to really push the air out. Thanks for this!
