Thanks for shopping with The Yoga Shop UK!
We take pride in our products. After all, we have tried and tested these products to make sure they are a high quality for you! Your order is important to us, which is why we want to make sure that your products arrive at the time you expect them and in excellent condition. Please take a moment to review our delivery and order processing policy to be informed of how and when your order will be processed and delivered.
Orders placed by noon on a working day (excludes Public Holidays) are processed and dispatched on the same working day. Orders which are placed after this time will be processed the following working day.
We are a small team of three working between the office and warehouse - if there is an issue with your order processing or dispatch we will contact you as soon as possible to discuss, and let you know how your order will then be processed and delivered.
**Please be aware that any orders placed on or immediately following a release date or during a sale, your item(s) may be delayed and may require up to 48 hours of additional processing time.
You may also collect your order from our Edinburgh warehouse which is located at 25 Dunedin Street, Edinburgh EH7 4JG by selecting this option at the shipping/delivery page whilst placing your order. Orders can be collected Monday - Friday between 9am and 5pm.
For evening/weekend collections you may collect from our sister yoga studio, Union Yoga Centre at 25 Rodney Street, Edinburgh, EH7 4EL by special request only. Simply select 'collection from the warehouse' and then get in touch so we can designate a day and time for your collection. Union Yoga has a small reception area - so they cannot store orders awaiting collection.
Delivery Methods within Mainland UK
We use DPD, Royal Mail and occasionally Fed Ex to ship orders.
Packages shipped using DPD are trackable and insured. If your order is not delivered as promised, we can issue a replacement or refund to you. Unfortunately, DPD does not service P.O. Box or APO addresses.
Packages sent via standard Royal mail are unfortunately untrackable.
We send you an email when we dispatch your order from our warehouse. We recommend when ordering for next day delivery that you ensure someone is in to recieve the order (or enter an alternative address for delivery).
Delivery times are of course for guidance and cannot be guaranteed unless we specifically describe them as such. Generally there are no issues but please be aware that very occasionally issues arise with the carrier and your order may be delayed.
We take great care to pass on any delivery notes that you provide with your order, but of course once we pass this on to the carrier it is up to the delivery driver to comply. We send the orders to be signed for, and so if you provide delivery instructions (such as leaving in an outbuilding etc) which results in a package being lost/damaged we are really sorry to say that the insurance/compensation would be invalidated.
International Shipping: We can deliver to you almost worldwide! Rates are calculated based on a number of factors, including desired service level, the weight of the item, and the cost of shipping, handling, and customs clearance from the UK to the destination country/region.
Want to check shipping charges before making a purchase? Add items to your cart and click the "check out" button. Don't worry, you will not be charged for an order until you submit your credit card information! You can also get in touch with us - we are happy to talk through your requirements!
Delivery charges vary depending on the package size, weight, destination and shipping method.
Delivery Promotional Offers
Like our customers, we are fans of delivery promotions. Unfortunately, however, any special delivery offers available on our website apply only to orders shipping to a UK Mainland destination.
We also regret that free delivery and/or other shipping promotions do not apply to oversized packages. Additional shipping charges will be added to all orders containing oversized products at the time of processing. You can always contact us for more information.
This pack contains 1x Firetoys aerial yoga silk hammock with two stainless steel rings attached, 2x steel carabiners and 1x SML Dyneema loop chain OR 1x Belay Daisy Chain for adjusting the height of the rig (see below). All components of this set are professionally strength tested and come with Working Load (WLL) and Breaking Load Limits (BLL). Watch out for equipment that does not state WLL or BLL as they may not be safe.
Our hammocks are specially designed for aerial yoga. They are shorter and wider than normal aerial silks, measuring 6m x 2.8m. Yoga hammocks are used to support your body weight allowing you to achieve deep stretches and other yoga postures in a more relaxing way with a reduced chance of injury. Aerial yoga hammocks also help to develop core strength and to decompress the spine.
Firetoys hammocks are a bit bouncier/stretchier than other hammocks, making them slightly more cushioning to use, but this can make them slightly less supportive than alternatives.
This setup rigs from a single point, as opposed to the two-point version. The single attachment point means this setup is sometimes known as an aerial sling or cocoon. The most obvious advantage of the one point hammock is that it is cheaper and easier to rig (it requires just one anchor). Some people prefer this type of hammock for aerial yoga because they like the extra "snugness". It can also give you more versatility with the angle for body moves. However, which set up you prefer comes down to personal preference to a great extent.
For hammock performance, this setup can be made to rotate easily by adding a swivel.
As we specialise in aerial silks and other aerial circus apparatus that is often over 10m high, all our hammocks exceed all required safety standards. Only the best and most comfortable materials are used and the hammocks are fully tested every 6 months for strengths and weaknesses. These hammocks have a working load limit of 172kg (379lbs).
The SML Dyneema loop chains are 400mm long and made from strong 15mm nylon. The SML chains allow you to adjust the height of your hammock, but not by very much. If you would like more versatility in your hammock's height we recommend choosing the Belay Daisy Chain. These chains are 1.4m long and have eight individual loops. Unlike other daisy chains, the Belay Daisy Chain's loops are all rated at 23kN so you're safe rigging from any of the loops, not just the end ones. The one downside is these chains are more expensive than the SMLs.
The auto locking carabiners are strong and versatile. They have a secure gate locking mechanism and a good wide opening of 18mm.
