Yoga Swings

Stretching with Yoga Swings

If someone had told me when I first walked into a yoga studio that, before too long, I would be suspended in mid-air from my very own yoga swing – I think I would have burst out laughing!

Now, it’s one of my favourite session props. These fantastic tools allow you to stretch out elegantly and build core muscle strength whilst supporting your weight and aiding with your balance.

They are great for everyone from beginners learning their first poses all the way through to seasoned yogis looking for a challenging, high-intensity aerial yoga session.

Check these out and I suspect you too will be swinging before long!
