Yoga Swing Components
Made from a breathable nylon parachute fabric. Washable and durable up to ten years with normal use. Choose a single solid colour (above) or select your own dual colour combination for both the yoga swing and the drawstring carry bag.
To achieve greater grip the handles are made from black durable sponge foam. These grips are hand buffered at the edges to avoid any abrasion or snagging with the fabric.
Hooks and Height Adjustment
It is fast and simple to adjust the main swing seat and side handle grips from one level to another. The swing seat can be used in isolation or combined with the side handle grips. The swing seat can be completely removed and the grips used by themselves. Just slip the hooks to the knot at your preferred height and you are ready to go again. For height adjustment on either side there are four (4) separate stainless steel hooks attached at the ends of both the swing seat and the side handles.
Two (2) pre knotted full strength 6mm nylon ropes are included. They are both 100cm long and can be adjusted to your own specifications by moving the hooks up and down the knots at four separate height intervals.
Metal rope protectors are included for use when hanging the Yoga Swing from ceiling hooks. These protectors reduce abrasion and extend the lifecycle of your ropes.
Two (2) adjustable sliders keep the fabric neat and in place while you work. Move the sliders up and down according to your position so that you are comfortable; especially useful when you are inverted and want to wrap your feet around the fabric.

Yoga Swing Science
Once you learn how to move with the Yoga Swing you will intuitively discover your own swing dynamics. With use you will develop your core body strength and find the Yoga Swing more and more versatile. The power and dexterity running through the centerline of your body will become enhanced and you will find yourself becoming stronger and more flexible through time. As you develop your own strength and flexibility, so the Yoga Swing experience becomes more fascinating and much more fun! Continual use of the Yoga Swing will show fantastic long term benefits. It awakens your spine, releases the tension in your joints, ligaments and muscles and releases your energy and vitality. For many forms of back pain and muscular tension the Yoga Swing is of tremendous therapeutic benefit. Gravity releases the pressure between discs and allows muscles to lengthen.
Every posture you hold will be assisted by the movement of the Yoga Swing, with the aid of gravity. Practice with control and balance is the aim. Gradually you will become more aware of your centre of gravity. The breath is linked to motion. As you contract or come up from a sit up or an extension where the muscles are contracting and tightening this is the exhale phase. The inhale is any motion that is a release of the pause or hold of the exercise. The breath is held for as long as you can until you feel a flush of blood to the body or brain and you get the vibe it is time to release. Enjoy your Yoga Swing and take the time to work your body gently into a routine that will be constantly improving and enhancing your health, strength, flexibility and wellbeing.

Set up your Yoga Styling Yoga Swing in just a couple of minutes.
Set up your Yoga Swing in your home or outside.
You can use ceiling hooks to attach to support beams, hang it from existing structures, trees, porches, at the gym or studio, wherever there is space and you feel comfortable. Remember to select or create a forgiving surface beneath.
If you are employing ceiling hooks or bolts please install with caution. These fittings will need to take more than your full weight while you are in motion. We advise professional installation of any such weight bearing fittings.
If you are simply wrapping the ropes around an existing beam, branch or bar be sure that it is sturdy enough.
When you select a horizontal support make sure that it is at least thirty (30) centimeters higher than the top of your head.
The ropes included with your swing are for the adjustment system. You may also require additional rope to fit to beams or supports.
There are four (4) adjustable positions that you can hook the Yoga Swing side handles to. The side handles are most often placed on the top knot so that the lowest handle becomes a foot stirrup for sky walking and skiing exercises.
The ideal height for the centre section is most often hooked into the knots below the side handle hooks.
The lowest position is good for floor work, for example stretching the lumbar area or doing inverted shoulder stands.
Hanging free, the centre section should be about hip level.
When inverting, make sure your head is free of the floor. Adjust knots either up or down to the height that suits your objective.
