Master your centre of gravity as you build core power and improve your strength, balance, flexibility and endurance. Once you've grasped the basics you're ready to take your exercise regime to the next level, hit the sky and experience an intoxicating aerial experience that will revolutionise your resistance training workouts.

The AirBorneYoga Swing & Exercise is built around an extremely versatile, adjustable and comfortable Swing which has two handles with three grips at varying heights to enable you to achieve any conceivable posture, angle, movement, stretch or exercise imaginable. Anything is possible from vertical to horizontal and inversion techniques, with every conceivable option in between. This is not just a Yoga Swing system; it's a complete exercise tool, but best of all it's FUN.

The AirBorneYoga Swing & Exercise is unique in that it offers you the ability to stretch and strengthen. It is also a therapeutic piece of equipment that can be used to practice Inversion Therapy which is ideal for gentle, passive stretching and traction of the spine. Hanging upside down can alleviate muscular tension and pain as well as promote increased joint mobility and flexibility, energy levels and improved blood circulation. All of these in turn will promote good health and well-being.



Use of the yoga swing



When using the swing it is important to find the right tension to achieve the correct amount of traction, extension and depth required. To achieve this, experimentation is required to find alignment.

When working with inverted poses, how long you stay inverted depends on the ability to hold or previous experience of inversion. In the beginning monitor blood flow to the head. Inverting takes time to develop into.

The use of the Swing will be varied for each body type

Variables depend upon
Users may only be able to carry out part poses, which in turn will develop them towards the full Asana correctly. This does not make it less of a pose and must be respected for the intention and listening involved at that level.

BE AWARE OF ANY MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND DETERMINE WHETHER THE USE OF THE YOGA SWING, PARTICULARLY INVERSION, IS APPROPRIATE.



Different areas or types


  1. Inversion

    The benefits of inversion to the muscular-skeletal and lymphatic drainage systems are well documented. Regular practice can improve postural alignment thus benefitting the spine and weight-bearing joints which are often compressed from the effects of daily activities and gravity.

    The Swing provides a flexible and versatile means of support for the practitioner allowing for partial and full (180 degree) inversions.

    For the majority of the time, the human body remains in an upright position whether it be standing, sitting or walking. We live in a 'forward folding' society hunched over desks and steering wheels with our backs taking a disproportionate amount of the weight of our bodies as opposed to the feet and lower limbs. This affects spinal alignment resulting in discomfort, poor posture and sometimes injury. In order to reverse the effect of a 'forward folding' society we need to get the spine moving. Inversions provide the body with a welcome break from gravity and the opportunity to realign the spine.

    Inverting assists the system of the body to function more effectively. The Endocrine, Circulatory, Nervous and Lymphatic systems all benefit from inverting. The pituitary and thyroid glands are stimulated assisting brain function and the nervous system is massaged. When the body is inverted the Circulatory System and venous blood flow can take a rest. The increased oxygen rich blood flow to the face helps to slowdown the ageing process as the skin cells are nourished. The organs receive a powerful massage aiding the body's digestive function; the parasympathetic nervous system is positively stimulated promoting a feeling of calm and deep well-being. This relaxed state generates muscle and fascia release, reducing pain and cultivating strength.


  2. Back Pain And Inversion Therapy

    Most people experience back pain that interferes with their work, daily routine or recreational activities as some point in their lives. According to a 2014 study by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Strokes, Americans spend at least $50 billion annually treating lower back pain. Back pain is the biggest cause of job related disability and a major contributor to missed work. It is also the second most common neurological ailment in the USA, only headache is more common

    Your vertebra are supported and moved by many different muscles. Muscles are used for three basic functions: support, movement and posture control. If muscles are tight or weak they create or worsen back pain. Joints are controlled by at least two sets of muscles: flexors which bend the joint and extensors which straighten it. In addition, most joints have rotator muscles that twist and rotate your bones. Good posture is only possible if the flexors, extensors and rotators are in proper balance.


  3. Healing Benefits

    The Swing can be used for gentle passive lumbar or sacral traction, which can provide astonishing pain relief to the lower back in minutes. You can also carry out lower back strengthening exercises to heal lower back pain/injuries and correct the fibers and tissues caused by re-injury. Well-being and the ability to perform any task may be increased by up to 100% after performing continued inversion therapy combined with flexing, moving and breathing as a form of flowing rehabilitation.


  4. Core Yoga

    Core Yoga is working from the core. By strengthening the lower abdominal muscles the entire bodily structure becomes incredibly strong and unified. The Core System was developed to achieve a deeper state of body integrity.

    When undertaking Inversion Therapy we would like you to practice bilateral symmetry when doing exercises. This act of smooth control while focusing on muscle balance will correct imbalances in predominant muscle groups, again enhancing alignment and gaining superior strength.

    AirBorneYoga Swing & Exercise is portable, just find a low tree branch and you are ready to hang out in a peaceful setting. It is a complete exercise gym, yoga, stretching and osteopathic therapy alignment device.



Precautions for inverting



For those new to inversion it is important to learn and practice gradually.

Start with partial inversion slow to the floor. Time in inversions should be short i.e. 20-30 seconds and gradually increased over time. In all instances, both for beginners and experienced practitioners, inversion must be ceased in the even to feeling dizzy, nauseous or faint. These symptoms more commonly occur in beginners and with practice will normally pass.

To invert safely and securely so as not to 'slip' out of the swing - placement of the swing's fabric in relation to the back and legs is of vital importance.
