Most of the European and American Brands are selling yoga swings from Asia that are exactly the same but in different colors. those Asian yoga swings are unsafe.
Here an example where you can see by your self and compare the differences between the Bali yoga swing and our Aerial Living yoga swing Made in Spain with European components CE-certified.
These product are yoga swings with handles made in Bali, Indonesia. Some companies sell the same product for quite a low price and others charge more than € 150 for it, but remember that anyway it is the same unsafe product.
But lets see if the Bali yoga swings are actually unsafe… when you are doing yoga the whole of your body is supported by the fabric, carabiners, rope, hooks, and finally the ceiling; if any of those parts broke you may fall being upside down, with a big risk of a serious injury.
Therefore all the components should be certified for “human support”, that means it must support the whole of your body in movement and still have a safe margin to ensure that it will not broke over time. We have bought Bali yoga swings as well as some made in China, then tested and verified them and finally we’ve found that we could not sell them because of the risk implied for the users as well for us as a company.
Finally we decide to produce our own yoga swings with 100% CE-Certified components,approved for climbing / human support, and we find that even using the best quality materials made in Europe we still have a very good price!!!
We must say that the other manufacturers of Europe are as responsible as we are; just be very careful if you want to buy a swing, don’t choose the Asian ones, specially if you want them for a yoga studio where other people are going to use it. If you have already bought a yoga swing made in Asia, I will recommend you to change the carabiners and ropes for a “certified for climbing” that you can find in any climbing shop. It may cost € 50… but it is about to be safe.
