About the Pose

Mermaid and King Pigeon (click here) are two similar and great poses. The base will need to assure stability, while the flyer will play with her body around! 


The same process to get into them with a  slight difference in the flyer position! As always, practice both sides,  even if you have a preferred bendy body side!


❌Flyers’hip is very important to get into the pose, turn it till you are looking to your bend knee.


❌The transition from Straddle Throne base needs to bend the knees, otherwise is going to be very difficult for the flyer to reach the base legs.


✅ Option 1: easier transition from Straddle Throne. Base bend knees, strong support with hands, flyer release one leg and base place the feet just above the knee (never on it!). From there the flyer turns the hip and enters into Pigeon.


✅ & ➕ Option 2: with a lot of control, base bend slightly one knee to reach the flyer's ankle and help the flyer to turn the hip.


(DISCLAIMER: do now try it pregnant). The picture is just to show you how much you can achieve once you master a skill!
