The Benefits of Mermaiding

What intrigues me most about swimming with a tail, is how mental boundaries between what’s real and what’s not, become blurred. This allows a whole new reality to emerge full of mermazing possibilities.

Mermaiding is simply a magical experience no matter your age!

What’s possible enters a whole new dimension that is both physically demanding and imaginatively expanding.

Swimming like a mermaid is not as easy as you might think. Remembering how to move like a fish in water takes skill, letting go of built up patterns in the body and determination.

The main physical benefits of mermaid swimming with a mono fin and mermaid tail skin according to Mermaids UK are:

*strengthen core

*improves flexibility

*increased stamina

*better balance

*deeper breathing

*joint mobility and strength


*left/right brain synchronization

Had you even thought of all that? I hadn’t.

When taking part in mermaid experiences and swim courses, participants can feel like a dream has just become reality.

It often leaves people feeling alive, happier in themselves and with a replenished sense of joy. Meeting with likeminded people allows you to feel connected and helps build relationships based on love.

The main social benefits of mermaid swimming might be:

*builds confidence

*feeling happy

*feeling connected

*at one with the sea

*team bonding

*overcoming fear

*stress relief

*be inspired

*be in the flow

As adults, Mermaid Experiences are a way of introducing imaginative play back into our lives.

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing” wrote George Bernard Shaw.

It can also be a way for people who love the water to dive deeper into the aquatic world. Mermaiding is graceful and allows you to feel at one with the flow.

Mermaids Corfu is based on the mermaid shaped island of Corfu and provides a variety of experiences both in pools and the sea.

It is run by a certified swimming instructor and trained Mermaid Swimming Instructor with Mermaids UK, in collaboration with Nafsithoos Swim School.
