Mermaid legends have been prevalent in cultures worldwide throughout history. Today, mermaid culture is popular around the globe, from the big screen to your backyard pool, where young kids play out their mermaid fantasies. These days, mermaiding is not just for kids! Mermaid training has become an excellent aquatic activity for fitness, fun with friends, creative expression, and a new way to explore the underwater world. In the SSI Try Mermaid course, you will learn how to gracefully move through the water with a single stroke of your mermaid tail. Read on to find out more.
Mermaid tails may seem simple enough to put on, but there are some tips and tricks to donning a mermaid tail that you will learn in a Try Mermaid course.
Many mermaid tails require you to fit your mermaid fin inside the mermaid tail before putting it on. Your Mermaid Instructor will show you how everything works together.
And since your feet will be bound together once you have your mermaid tail on, your Mermaid Instructor will ensure you know how to put it on easily and enter the water safely.
Anyone who has spent time in the water knows how freeing the aquatic environment can feel. Floating weightlessly is both exhilarating and peaceful all at the same time.
A mermaid fin is essentially a monofin, where both feet are secured together as you swim. SSI’s Try Mermaid course will provide you with entry-level mermaid training, ensuring you know how to swim properly with your monofin.
Mermaid swimming also helps to build up your cardiovascular fitness.
