    hello dr. doulliard, i emailed you awhile ago. and i was writing my masters….. i completely swim breathing only in and out through my nose. for months now, i swim various strokes, including the butterfly, completing 37 x 50s (right now because i want to up it again), all of it nasal breathing. thanks to you, your book, research, and lots of patience, i can honestly say that i always reach "the zone" everytime i swim. i will never swim any other way again and will continue to look forward to laps year round. warmly, barbara

    Hello Barbara,
    while doing some research on pranayama and sports performance i have come upon Dr Douillard and your above post.
    as a pranaymama practitioner and teacher, i try to nostril breathing as much as possible when i swim since i know the benefits of breathing through the nostrils vs the mouth.
    i do not however breath exclusively through the nostrils and have before you never read of anyone who does. being very interested to make this shift, i wonder if you would be so kind as to give me some tips and guidance as to how i could incorporate this technique into freestyle swimming.
    thank you in advance. all the best,
