The in and out through the nose breath is called Ujjayi breathing and sounds a bit like The ocean (I think it's more like Darth Vader personally) 😂 it supposedly builds internal body heat and increases your oxygenation. It's really tough to keep going for a long time especially if you're a beginner or you're doing intense practice. I find it a real effort to keep going sometimes and have to concentrate so hard!! I would just do what you are comfortable with as that's when you'll be most relaxed and get the most benefit ☺️

In nose and out mouth is what we do. Don't stress about it too much though as eventually it happens. Xx

I go to a yoga class and the teacher says we should breath in through the nose and out of the mouth x
