The first and very important part in breathing is your posture. here are few important points:
the upper body is straight and erect
head, neck and back are in alignment
shoulder and abdominal muscles are relaxed
the hands rest on the knees
the eyes are closed

Seat in given posture and start breath in for 2-3 seconds and breath-out slowly in 2-3 seconds. Consider this process as one cycle and repeat them for 4-5 minutes.
