This video will help in understanding how to use your Indo Yoga Board. The Indo Yoga Board is changing the way yoga is practiced by introducing an unstable platform on which to practice your yoga poses. The Indo Yoga board can be used for both Asana Yoga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga. The key to feeling comfortable on the Indo Yoga Board is to take the time to understand the feel and movement of the board and to slow down your poses and become more mentally engaged in your poses.
The Indo Yoga Board has varying levels of progression and instability. The wooden rockers on the bottom of the board provide a basic or beginning level of instability. Placing three Indo Board IndoFLO inflatable cushions underneath the board will increase the level of instability and increase the challenge. The inflation of the IndoFLO cushions changes the instability of the Indo Yoga Board. Inflating the IndoFLO cushions just enough so that the wooden rockers on the bottom of the Indo Yoga Board are not touching the floor, creates more instability. Further inflating the IndoFLO cushions continues to create more and more instability. Be sure to experiment with inflation of the cushions to find the right level of instability for your personal preference.
Practicing yoga on the Indo Yoga Board creates more muscle activation than traditional yoga on a stable surface. The Indo Yoga Board is meant to challenge all levels of yoga enthusiasts by forcing the user to slow down their pose and focus on engaging their core and other stabilizing muscles that may not be used in traditional yoga.
Have you tried stand up paddle board yoga – only to fall in love with it – but now it’s far too cold outside to practice at your local body of water – which might, in fact, at the moment be completely frozen over? Or maybe, even if it’s a beautifully warm day, just the thought of accidentally fumbling into the water and getting your hair sopping wet and completely messed up is just unthinkable, and therefore you’ve shied away from ever trying out stand up paddle board yoga? Sometimes even I don’t want to risk getting my hair wet.
Solve your dilemma by allowing yourself to train throughout the winter months and maintain happy dry hair with the Indo Yoga Board. Want more?

The Indo Yoga Board, which came from stand up paddle board yoga, has four rockers underneath the deck allowing it to move from side to side for a fun and engaging core challenge. Advanced yogis like to use IndoFLO™ Cushions underneath the Indo Yoga Board for an even greater challenge. Happy Day. – Georgette
” …while running obstacles – crossing a creek on a fallen tree twenty feet in the air at at full speed is due purely to my Indo Board …” – Johnny Colt
Johnny Colt is one of those rare, intelligent, and kind souls who you are just plain stoked to meet. A veteran musician, first with the Black Crows and now with Lynyrd Skynyrd, he is also a contributing writer for The Weather Channel, a loving husband and father, and a great athlete who just happens to love his Indo Board.
I initially met Johnny through www.instagram.com/indo_board when I saw a photo of him Indoboarding in what appeared to be a very narrow hallway which turned out to be the pathway inside of a moving Lynyrd Skynyrd tour bus. What the heck! I soon learned that he had recently surfed for the first time in his life in southern California and now had a serious case of the surfing bug. If you don’t know, surfing is like the mob: once your in – there’s no getting out. Before long, Rose, his wife, booked a trip for the entire family to come to Florida to surf with us. The kids had a blast. We all had fun.
After a day at the beach, we gathered together that evening for Thanksgiving dinner which was 98% organic by the way, watched football, challenged each other on the Slackline and horsed around on various Indo Boards.
If there is anything that I’ve learned at a deeper level within these last few weeks is that life is meant to be abundant. May you have very good health. – Georgette

Indo Board Hero, lyengar yoga teacher, and bassists, Johnny Colt of rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, helps you to get real feedback! Place a glass of water in the center of your Indo Board. In a plank position, lower yourself till your chest touches the glass – then pushup – into a plank while keeping the glass of water undisturbed ( theoretically). Thanks, Johnny, for your brilliant Indo Board tip! – Georgette
Indo Board pushup with a glass of water centered on your board to get real feedback. Brilliant!
