Empty your lungs of air slowly, hold your breath until you must draw in, then take up vapor slowly until your lungs are full, hold as long as you can and then draw in more fresh air, slowly releasing when you must.
If you do it right you’ll see no vapor on exhalation.
Tulsi vapor is also nice to use for this exercise if you like.

Update: and the winner of the 2007 Au Peer:
Happy New Year!
