I have been watching Julie Landsman's first video (Six Notes) and having just revisited the method after more than 30 years I wonder if those who currently teach the method could tell me if they recommend breathing through the mouth on the first inhale? Secondly she recommends to relax the embouchure between each note instead of maintaining the set? I would be grateful for any feedback.

Breathing through the mouth for the first breath is fine.

Keep the setting as still as possible while breathing through the nose. Relaxing the muscles during nose breathing is OK. CC called this the "long setting" approach. With some students he would instruct that the muscles stay flexed during the nose breathing

Breathing through mouth corners is fine if you can do it without disturbing the setting. The purpose of the nose breath is to keep the lips in the same position in relation to one another and in relation to the mouthpiece during the rest and breath. In doing so, the first note after the breath is played with the same setting as the last note before the breath.

There is a difference between "relaxing the embouchure" and allowing the setting to shift.
