Swara yoga is about the effect of nasal breathing on our body and mind through right nostril, (Pingala Nadi) left nostril, Ida Nadi) both nostril (Shushumna Nadi). The different pattern and nature of breath indicates the active elements (Panch Mahabhutas ie. Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether) in our psychic body . In Swara yoga, practices are connected with the flow of nadi in a systematic pattern with moon phases, Sun and other planets. Elements are connected with different planets in different nasal flow. When a planet affect earth's gravitational field and electromagnetic field they will alter human energy patterns in the psychic body on feedback basis. This can be experienced as change in the flow of our breath. Swara yoga identifies this as different elements. In order to balance and harmonize these subtle forces, Swara yoga gives the easy and effective tool - The time and cycle of breath. The cycle of breath is based the luner tithis (Moon's position at different times).
Tithi is considered as the first phase or portion (Kala) of the 16 phases of the Moon. The 15 days, commencing from Amavasya (the last day of the dark half of a lunar month) to Purnima (Full moon), are called the Tithis of the Shukla-Paksha or Waxing Moon (brighter phase) when moon becomes fuller and the days commencing from Purnima to Amavasya are called Krishna Paksha waning Moon (darker phase) when moon becomes darker.
In Indian Astrology, the calculation of the Tithis starts from Pratipada (The first day in each half of the lunar month) of the Shukla-Paksha. They are:
- Purnima / Amawasya.
Similarly, in the Krishna-Paksha, starting from Pratipada till Chaturdashi, all the dates are same; the only difference being the fifteenth day which is Amavasya (No Moon or Moonless night) For tithi calculation for any particular day any location Click here.
In Swara cycle right nostril becomes active during Krishna paksha on tithes Pratipada,(1) Dwitiya, ,(2) Tritiya, ,(3) Saptami, ,(7) Ashtami, ,(8) Navami, ,(9) Trayodashi, ,(13) Chaturdashi, ,(14) Amavasya,(15). There after Ida and Pingala function alternately in 1-2 hour cycle throughout the day until, at sunset left nostril begins to function on the specified days. On days 4 , 6, 10, 12, of dark fortnight (Krishna paksha) the left nostril flows at sunrise and right nostril at sunset. During shukla paksha we see the reverse. At sunrise of the first 3 days, left nostril flows and during sunset right and same alternate manner it goes on up to full moon. See the chart below.
Swara days chart is a fixed chart that show the nostril dominance on particular phases of the moon known as tithis. Every day there will be a tithi and according to that you have to change the flow of your breath. For ex. 5th October 04 the tithi was saptami and during sunrise right nostril is (Pingala swara) recommended in chart for flow and the same day left nostril (Ida swara) should flow during sun-set.

In cycle of Swara, the time of sunrise and sun set is an important consideration. In summer, the sun rises earlier then in winter, and the time is constantly changing throughout the year.

Benefits of Swara rhythms
In the 1970’s science coined the word chronopsychology for the 24 hour cycle. Chronopsychologists found that during the 24 hour cycle certain events and one‘s mental, emotional and physical abilities have a ‘best’ or most favorable time of day. Swara yoga says the same, and further specifies the times when tasks are either auspicious or inauspicious.
Swara yogi knows that during the flow of left nostril or right nostril when favorable elements rises certain things can be undertaken if you want to be successful.
Scientists have postulated that external forces set the biological clock by stimulating the pineal gland, which is affected by dark/light cycles. These rhythms which were previously known to the ancient Rishis, so man is actually only rediscovering himself in relation to the cosmos. By the practice of Swara yoga one can become the master of the nadis and elements, so as to adjust himself with the universal forces which is the source of everything that gives birth to the experience of both material and spiritual life with heightened awareness.
By properly practicing Swara yoga, directly under an adept one can definitely achieve success in all spheres of lives.
