The Kuruntas are hung from the wall unlike the aerial yoga swings which is hung from the ceiling.

These swings are rigid, which allows them to be very precise when working specific areas of the body.

Also the rigidity facilitates the practice of balances, since the swing does not yield. They have a padded part in the middle for more comfort when practicing.
