Mermaid Pose: Benefits & Build-Up Poses
Mermaid pose is a beautifully challenging and rewarding hip and heart-opening asana. It’s an advanced posture that requires a lot of openness through the chest, shoulders, quadriceps and hip flexors. It’s a pose that can be practiced as a progression to build up to King Pigeon (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana). There are many foundational asanas that can be sequenced to prepare for mermaid pose and make this photogenic pose much more attainable.
