I received the following question via Mail:
"why do we breath only through the nose during yoga asanas? "

Here is my answer:
Breath and Prana are interrelated. The nostrils are very important in regulating the Prana, as Ida and Pingala end here. Therefore breathing through the nose is recommended in Yoga.

Anybody want to add to it?

In Sitali and Sitkari there is breathing through mouth? How are these two pranayamas? Are they good? Is retention allowed for these?
