An aerial yoga set for two-point rigging. Includes a yoga hammock, four carabiners and two loop chains.
This pack contains:
1 x 6m aerial yoga silk hammock (choose colour above) with two stainless steel rings attached
4 x steel carabiners and
2 x SML Dyneema loop chain for adjusting the height of the rig (see below).
All components of this set are professionally strength tested and come with Working Load (WLL) and Breaking Load Limits (BLL). Watch out for equipment that does not state WLL or BLL as they may not be safe.
Our hammocks are specially designed for aerial yoga. They are shorter and wider than normal aerial silks, measuring 6m x 2.8m.
Yoga hammocks are used to support your body weight allowing you to achieve deep stretches and other yoga postures in a more relaxing way with a reduced chance of injury. Aerial yoga hammocks also help to develop core strength and to decompress the spine.
This set up rigs from a single point, as opposed to the two-point version. The single attachment point means this setup is sometimes known as an aerial sling or cocoon. The most obvious advantage of the one point hammock is that it is cheaper and easier to rig (it requires just one anchor). Some people prefer this type of hammock for aerial yoga because they like the extra "snugness". It can also give you more versatility with the angle for body moves. However, which set up you prefer come down to personal preference to a great extent.
For hammock performance, this setup can be made to rotate easily by adding a swivel.
Our hammocks exceed all required safety standards. Only the best and most comfortable materials are used and the hammocks are fully tested every 6 months for strengths and weaknesses. These hammocks have a working load limit of 172kg (379lbs).
The SML Dyneema loop chains are 400mm long and made from strong 15mm nylon. The SML chains allow you to adjust the height of your hammock.
