Do women and men breath differently?

Apparently the ujjayi breathing in ashtanga yoga is different from women to men. At least that’s what my male yoga teacher told me today when I asked him for more in-depth explanation: “You’d better ask (female colleague), she can explain it better for women.”

Yes, I can understand that various positions might affect women and men differently considering our different physiology. But… breathing? Oh well.
