Default Exhale through nose or mouth

I took the workshop in San Jose this past summer (Hi, Dave!) and loved it. Up until now I've been ignoring the breathing, but it is time to work on that. The other posts in this Forum helped, and I bought the O2 in H2O DVD, but I still am having a lot of problems.

The DVD says to exhale through your nose. Is this important? I am much more comfortable exhaling through my mouth (probably because that's how I was originally taught), but is there a reason for using my nose instead? I've been trying to do that, but I'm much less relaxed, and also as I get tired I seem to sometimes accidentally inhale through my nose while still underwater.

Any help would be appreciated.
