Important Note: When using the hammocks, you need your attachment point to accommodate a 2,000 to 3,000 pound force; this is especially important if you plan to have more than one person in the hammock. When swinging, bouncing, and doing tricks in the hammocks, you are placing a dynamic load and shock load on the equipment as well as on your attachment point. Please reference our article on why this load is generated: What is Dynamic Load? To ensure that your attachment point can support a hammock, consult a rigger, SOMETHING I forgot the words….
Our Basic Aerial Yoga Hammock kit can be used for yoga slings, fitness, relaxation, stretching, stress reduction, and to relieve back pain. The material is comfortable, easy to clean, and durable.
The Basic Hammock installs at two points, allowing for easy getting in and out of it. It comes fully assembled, including two runners and two carabiners. You can adjust the height by moving the runners on the fabric, but the Adjustable hammock is recommended for individuals who will change the height of hammock frequently. For a home studio, or if you are planning on using the hammock at only one height continuously, choose between 4-yards for an 8-foot ceiling, 5-yards for a 10-foot ceiling, or 6-yards for a 12-foot ceiling.
The Adjustable Aerial Yoga Hammocks are used for aerial yoga in studios around the world. Also known as “slings,” they are assembled with between 4- to 10-yards of fabric with either Shine or other special order fabric. It is mounted at two points making easy to get in and out of as it does not spin. These hammocks are set at hip height, but can be lowered for restorative yoga or stretching.
The Adjustable yoga hammock includes: two steel screw-gate carabiners and two multiple links. Unlike the Basic Hammock, the Adjustable hammock can be raised or lowered in 4-inch increments.
Some studios prefer the single point hammock as it reduces the need for 2 mounting points. We recommend always using a swivel for Single Point Aerial Yoga Hammocks to be able to incorporate choreography into aerial dance or for a young dancer who loves to spin!
The length of the hammock will depend on your attachment point or ceiling height AND the distance you need between the bottom of the hammock and the floor. For example, if you are planning on doing flip make sure your hammock is set at shoulder length to ensure there is enough space to perform your trick safely. The Single Point Hammock includes: two 9-inch runners, two steel screw-gate carabiners, one swivel, and one multiple link (to adjust the height). The multiple link is best used with with hammock to give yourself a bit more height when performing acrobatic movements, as you want enough space between the floor and your head.
There are a number of tricks and poses using a slip-knot that can be done in a single point hammock. Check out Level 1 and 2 of our Aerial Dance Curriculum for suggestions.
