How to tie your Aerial Yoga hammock:
- Fold the hammock so that the cutting edges of the cloth ends lie evenly on top of each other. In other words, bundle the short sides of the hammock together like an accordion.
- Wrap a binding loop twice around each gathered end of the hammock (so-called Prusik knot, see series of pictures).
- TIP: Start at one end of the cloth. Attach both slings next to each other, using the described account technique.
- Then pull one sling over to the other end of the cloth. This way you can assume that the cloth is tied evenly.
- For safety reasons, leave at least 15 cm of fabric hanging out of the binding loops.
- Now tighten the round slings really well.
- Then, use carabiners and daisy chains to hang the sling from the swing hooks in the ceiling.
- RECOMMENDATION: The swing hooks should be placed with a distance of about 35-50 cm (shoulder width). This way the swing hooks give the direction of the swing.
