Is it possible to inhale air into the nose and then one part of it to be exhaled into mouth...?

Hi! This is my first question here. Is it anatomical possible (and if it is, how to make it) to inhale air into the nose and then one part of it to be exhaled into mouth and the rest of the inhaled air to be sent in the lungs? If you don't understood what I mean, here is a simple diagram:

Anatomically possible?  Yes.  Physiologically, maybe.  You would just have to find a way to create a negative pressure in your mouth.  Perhaps, as air is moving into your windpipe, pucker and then unpucker your cheeks, with your mouth tightly closed.

Thank you for your answer. Sorry, but my English isn't good. I don't know what exactly means "pucker". Did you mean to fill with air and then to get empty my cheecks?
