What Is An Aerial Hammock?

Feel the inversion benefits of aerial yoga with our aerial hammocks. Our professional-quality aerial yoga hammocks and swings are the ultimate inversion tools for strengthening, lengthening, and realigning your back.

In the video below, our aerial arts experts provide an introduction to aerial yoga hammocks, including what an aerial hammock is and various aerial fitness poses you can try at home or in aerial classes. These poses are difficult to achieve on the ground without assistance, but the yoga hammock makes it fun and easy. You can use the hammock to explore new poses, improve your flexibility, increase your strength, and relieve stress.

About Our Aerial Hammocks

Aerial yoga has become immensely popular recently because it allows easy access to many different inverted poses. If you ever suffer from back pain or stiffness, this yoga hammock may be what you need. Hanging upside down feels amazing on the back and allows you to stretch your spine, offsetting some of the compressing effects that gravity has on us throughout the day.

Our fabric hammocks are made of a hundred percent nylon aerial fabric, featuring a low to medium stretch that will cradle your body and feel soft against your skin. They can support body weight up to 400 pounds. Each hammock comes with all the rigging equipment you need to get started on your aerial journey, including two daisy chains and two carabiners. The soft, supportive aerial hammocks come with everything you need to get started, and our products are easy to install.

If you’re interested in aerial acrobatics, aerial exercises, or the general art form of aerial, check out our other free tutorial videos. We show you how to use an aerial silk, aerial hoop, and more to gain upper body strength, build grip strength, stretch out your spine, and elevate your aerial dance and exercise skills.

Choose Your Aerial Hammock


Aerial silks and hammocks are very similar, yet they are used for different aerial acts. Aerial silks are traditionally used for circus arts focusing on aerial tricks like the classic static trapeze. Aerial silks use two ribbons that hang from anchor points on a ceiling, typically installed by a structural engineer. In contrast, aerial hammocks are often used for stretching or a full-body workout, using a portable rig with single or double-point connectors that can be set up in almost any location. The fabric used for our silks and hammocks are the same, but the length required and hardware are very different.

The best aerial yoga hammock depends on your preference! We have a yoga swing hammock with handles that can help you support and deepen your yoga poses and a single-point aerial dance hammock for traditional aerial yoga poses. All of our hammocks are made from high-quality 40 Denier Nylon Tricot, which has the same technical thickness and soft feeling fabric used in the Cirque du Soleil.

Yes, you can sleep in an aerial hammock. However, our hammocks are designed for you to perform aerial yoga and aerial workouts. At times, during your inversions or cool-down motions, you may fall asleep. We suggest using a crash mat below your apparatus for safety if you think you may fall asleep during your aerial yoga lesson.
