This is one of the first poses I’ve learned. It is relatively easy but there is a lot of transitions you can do going into it and coming out of it, and of course it is very very pretty.
As usual the names in my country are a bit different so what people usually call Mermaid is what we call Angel. Sorry for the mixing…
In aerial acrobatics you mostly use explosive-power, and since the body can only use so much of this power you have to find poses where you can rest in so that your body will renew it’s energy. It takes only a few seconds to renew this energy, so i use these “resting” poses that require minimum power to get my strength back. The Angel is one of those poses.
After you do it a few times and you understand where you are and how to come back, you can use it as a very beautiful resting point.
I know this pose has a lot of different names, if you know of other names, please let me know so that i can add them.
Have a great week!
