Eka Pada Rajakapotasana – Mermaid Pose – Advanced
Technique / SUP Yoga
Unleash your inner mermaid with this beautiful mermaid pose.
This more advanced pose, is for Yogis who like a challenge. From pigeon pose, bend the back knee and cradle the toes into the crease of the elbow. Making sure you are positioned in the middle of the board with the bottom foot pushing down firmly and ground the hip onto the board to increase balance. If you can’t reach you hands behind your head, keep the back arm bent, cradling the toes and the front arm straight out in front of you, or reach down with the fingers on the board to create more stability.
