What is a Yoga Swing?
A yoga swing, or an aerial yoga hammock as it is otherwise known, is made up of a strong parachute-grade silk/taffeta fabric, which is designed to be attached to aerial hardware. Yoga swings are used to practice inversions and poses whilst being suspended from the ceiling.
You may have seen people using yoga swings before reading this article, but just for clarity, aerial yoga hammocks are most often used to improve flexibility, tone muscle and ensure that your mind is in a state of peace. The yoga swing can also help our mind by stopping the flow of constant thoughts, achieving the ultimate goal of yoga which is to allow us to live and think in the moment.
The yoga swing ultimately empowers our bodies in a way that no other yoga prop can. They open the possibility of flowing into a wide array of positions, be they horizontal or vertical. These poses and moves ultimately make you stronger, more flexible and can even be used to ease anxiety, if paired with the correct breathing exercises.
How Do I Choose The Right Yoga Swing For Me?
However, not all yoga swings/aerial yoga hammocks are the same, and before making any commitments, it’s important to know which product is right for you. We’ve compiled what we feel is a comprehensive list, and it encompasses a huge amount of different features.
However, there are some general categories to consider, especially when choosing the right yoga swing for you, which include:
- Weight/Load Limit
- Width & Length of Fabric
- Fabric Type
- Handles/No Handles
It’s also vital that you read over the description of the item you’re looking at (we’ve linked each yoga swing, as well as given a price below the image) to ensure the yoga hammock suits your needs.
For instance, if there’s a specific material that you don’t enjoy using, or if you need handles to get in and out of the swing, it’s vital to ensure that you buy a swing that has all of the features you need.
Whether that’s enhancing your mindfulness, or enjoying the benefits of training flexibility, there’s a yoga swing that ticks every box.
Or, if you’re on a tight budget, make sure you pick a yoga swing that combines good value with all of the characteristics that you’re looking for.
The Best Yoga Swings
Price: €55.50 (approximately £48) – €98.00 (approximately £85)
The first yoga hammock to feature on the list is the Antigravity 5, produced by the company Aerial Living. This anti gravity yoga hammock comes in 11 unique colours, which are all non-toxic and safe for both your skin and the environment. The prices for this product ranges between €55.50 (£48) – €98.00 (£85), with the price increasing depending on your choice of colour, length and height adjustments.
We reached out to Aerial Living about their flagship yoga hammock, and they proudly stated that “You can lay down in it with extended arms and the body will be fully held and horizontal” and that “It’s ideal for practicing all the postures of unnata and antigravity yoga.”
This anti gravity yoga hammock is made up of special fabric that is very resistant, whilst also being soft, breathable and elastic. However, unlike many other yoga swings on the market today this product is not made of parachute fabric, but rather “an elastic, breathable fabric”.
The Antigravity 5 also comes with height regulators which are traditionally made for climbing rope, meaning the product is easy to adjust in height, to either floor or hip level. These height regulators will also allow you to take the product with you, and practice your aerial yoga swings outdoors, as well as being “made, certified and tested in the EU”.
Additionally, if you’re someone who is interested in aerial acrobatics or aerial dancing you can choose to purchase an extended 7 meter version of the product, instead of the traditional 5 meter version.
One of the added bonuses of purchasing this aerial yoga hammock, is that it comes with a free bag which you can use to transport the kit to take on your travels. Additionally, whilst on the topic of added bonuses if you’re at all worried about learning how to make knots, have no fear for the Antigravity 5 comes ready to use. You won’t have the added stress of learning how to set up a product.
If the two aforementioned points weren’t incentive enough to buy the product, perhaps this will be - when you purchase this product the company Aerial Living will give you free lifetime access to their online video tutorials. So if you’re a complete newbie this may be the product for you, as not only will you be purchasing the product, but you’ll also be getting access to classes too!
Plus, combined with a pick from our list of the best free yoga apps, you’ll be posing like a pro in no time!
The Antigravity 5 is one of the most recognisable products on this list, and taking into consideration all of the bonuses that company offers, we would recommend this product if you’re a complete newbie to yoga swings.
The next entry onto our list is known as a yoga swing frame, which is essentially a large piece of equipment on which you can attach your yoga hammock. This product was created by Uplift Active, and features an adjustable frame which can be extended anywhere between 5-11ft tall.
OriGym spoke to Uplift Active recently about their top-of-the-range yoga swing frame, and they said that it’s a “fantastic way to hang your equipment, and the best value for the features it provides”, and that “it adjusts in small increments, so you can customize the height to fit in any ceiling height”
However, whilst the yoga swing frame is the main attraction to this purchase, the aerial yoga hammock kit also comes with:
- Stainless Steel Top Bar: 1pcs 1.4meters
- Telescopic Legs: 4 pcs 1.6meters. (The size in between each height hole: 15cm)
- Tension Steel D-Pins: 12 pcs.
- Nylon Stabilizing Belts: 2 pcs
- Top Bar Connectors: 2 pcs
- Hex Key Wrench: 1pcs
- Leg Connectors: 2pcs
- Silicone pads: 4pcs
- 2 Carrying Bags (optional choices available on the website)
At the lowest height this yoga swing frame will require floor space of 4.4 sqm which can naturally be practiced indoors, but make sure to use the silicone pads to avoid floor damage. When the product is fully extended to 11ft tall it will require an area of 8.9sqm. In this instance Uplift Active recommends using the yoga swing frame fully extended whilst being outdoors only.
Additionally, there are some safety aspects to take into consideration before purchasing this product. Uplift Active strongly advises against using this product for drops, so if you’re an aerial dancer then this may not be the product for you. Additionally, you should only use this product on your own, due to the weight of the rig’s legs it simply cannot support the weight of two people, so double aerial yoga is sadly out of the question.
Whilst this product may seem expensive in comparison to other entries on this list, it is important to keep in mind this product is so much more than an aerial yoga swing, it’s an entire aerial yoga hammock kit. You’re paying for so much more than the fabric, you’re paying for the entire aerial yoga frame and set up, ensuring you can get involved with many different types of yoga styles.
Uplift Active’s aerial yoga swing is also unanimously well received, reaching a perfect 5 star rating with over 90 reviewers. Most reviewers seem to compliment the stability of the product, discussing how safe they feel when being suspended from the product.
It's easy to see why aerial yoga may be a scary process for some people, so if you’re looking for a product that will put all those fears to rest, then this is the kit you’re looking for.
This hanging yoga swing by Pink Namaste is the next entry onto our list, which prides itself on creating a product which allows ‘gravity to do the work for you’. Much like the product featured above, Pink Namaste offers so much more than just a yoga swing, they offer their customers an entire aerial yoga hammock kit.
Consisting of an aerial yoga hammock that measures in at 5m x 2,8, the Pink Namaste hammock is designed to be hung from aerial yoga rigs, ceiling points or alternatively a strong tree if you’re practicing outdoors. The fabric that makes up this yoga suspension swing is silk that combines lightness with great bearing capacity of 250kg.
We got in touch with Pink Namaste about their aerial yoga hammock, and they stated that their signature yoga hammock is “used by serious aerial practitioners and enthusiasts alike” and that they intend for customers to enjoy “deep relaxation as well as just a lot of fun!”
Pink Namaste’s aerial yoga hammock is designed to be completely safe, the fabric is slightly elastic, is non-electrostatic and is completely machine washable at 30 degrees. This product is also available in 4 colours - white, turquoise, orange and pink - meaning it’ll be a great colour match for a lot of the best yoga mats out there.
The rest of this aerial yoga hammock kit comes with:
- 2 grey daisy chains, which will allow you to adjust the length of your rigging.
- 2 carabiners that are made of cast iron.
- 1 Pink Namaste backpack to carry your equipment.
The Pink Namaste aerial yoga hammock kit is rated 5 stars, with the reviewers complimenting the quality of the materials as well as the strength of the daisy chains.
Many professional yoga studios have also complimented the quality of the product, so if you’re interested in aerial yoga hammock that is certified by professionals, then Pink Namaste will be the product for you.
Price: $89.00 AUD (approximately £50)

Made of high quality parachute fabric, the EverKing aerial yoga trapeze is an inversion yoga swing that is widely popular with individuals seeking inversion therapy. This means that the product is traditionally used to treat individuals with spinal issues, whilst simultaneously training them to improve their core strength.
The inversion swing measures in at 8ft by 5ft and can hold up to 440lbs. However, please be aware that this product comes with a strong recommendation that you practice it alone, so once again yoga for two is completely out of the question.
But if you are seeking best yoga poses for two people, OriGym have put together a comprehensive overview of the top stances.
An interesting point to note about the EverKing inversion yoga swing, is that it was created to be a low-maintenance alternative to other yoga swings on the market today.

Another product that will help to relieve the aches and pains in your back and neck is Himifuture’s 6 handle hammock. Made of high-strength nylon taffeta, this zero gravity yoga swing has a weight bearing load of 300kg.
The fabric used in this product can be triple height adjusted, is lightweight and breathable, ensuring the perfect aerial yoga workout no matter where you are. Due to the fabrics lightweight nature, this zero gravity yoga swing is used to decompress the spine and strengthen your upper limbs.
Much like other entries on this list this hanging yoga swing can be used to improve your body by stretching your spine, preventing any pains caused by long term fatigue and standing. This can reduce vertebral pressure and eliminate all muscle tension, and rejuvenate you by eliminating stiffness and tiredness from your body.
Another great feature that this yoga hammock provides is that it can be adapted into an actual hammock, so if you need a much deserved rest after your exercise routine why not kick back and relax. However, you’re going to have to relax on a tree or exposed beam, because the Himifuture does not come with any ceiling mounts.
However, here is a list of items which does come along with the product.
- 1 x 6 Handle Yoga Hammock
- 4 x carabiners(already installed on the hammock)
- 2 x 1m extension Belt
- 1 x carrying bag
These yoga swing reviews are fairly positive on Amazon. Many customers seem to really enjoy the product's overall durability. One reviewer commented how they accidentally left it out during bad weather and it didn’t lose any of its shape or colour, highlighting the product’s durability.
However, we believe that you should be aware that some reviews of this product have stated that the fabric used in the manufacture of this product is not as flexible, when compared to others in the yoga swing market. Bear this in mind before purchasing, if you’re a newbie who wants something with a little more stretch to help you in the process then this product may not be one for you.

Do All Yoga Stands Come With Swings?
As we’ve already seen on our list, unfortunately not.
Some yoga stands and frames are sold completely separately from the swings and hammocks. Please always be aware of what you’re purchasing before heading to the checkout. Many of the aerial yoga hammock kits to feature on this list will have a list of what is included in the package, make sure you read over that carefully.
If you’re on a budget, we’d recommend looking at swings that don’t come with a stand, as these are generally cheaper to produce, and therefore cheaper to buy.
Are There Age Restrictions to Yoga Swings and Hammocks?
The yoga swings that are used for aerial yoga (and other forms of aerial practice) do not have any age restrictions on. Whilst it may look complicated, it's perfectly safe for most children and adults of all ages to use safely.
However, we would recommend that children are supervised at all times whilst using any product mentioned on this list, purely in the interests of general safety. Additionally, regardless of your age, if you suffer any mobility issues, please make sure assistance is on hand in case you have any issues relating to your body or the fabric.
Can I Use My Yoga Swing Outdoors?
While it can be hugely tempting to immediately take your yoga swing into the great outdoors to connect with nature and absorb the natural light and fresh air, it’s first important to check your chosen yoga hammock’s information.
While many hanging yoga swings are durable enough to be used outdoors, and offer options for connecting to outdoor walls, trees, or garages, we’d always recommend thoroughly reading the information that comes with your yoga swing.
But, if you are able to, we’d definitely recommend going outside with your yoga swing and enjoying the sunshine - not only will you get a boost of some of the best B vitamins for energy, but you’ll feel more motivated and positive!
