The breathing should be as described in the technique, ensuring that it is synchronized with the body movements.
When you are fully familiar with the asana then close your eyes and become aware of the movement of the body and breath. In the final pose you should be aware of deep and slow breathing.
The duration in the final position should only be for as long as you are comfortable. With practice try to maintain the final pose for a minute or so on each side of the body providing this does not cause any excessive discomfort.
