How Not To Get Your Hair Wet While Practicing Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga

Amy Ploeckelman MosbyHave 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? FREE Indo Yoga Board Demo Classes  are being offered with Indo Board Certified Trainer, Amy Ploekelman Mosbey! DATES: February 21st, 10:00AM – 10:45AM & February 22nd, 8:00AM-8:45AM at http://www.thestudiolife.com/ in Danvville, California! Indo Yoga Board Classes in March TBA.

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

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

Julie Roach, Indo Board SUP/Yoga Instructor

A few days ago, we had a great time Stand Up Paddle Boarding and practicing Yoga on our SUP’s with Julie Roach of http://www.myyogagirl.com.


Julie writes, “Living in Central Florida all my life, water being on both sides and in between, my sport and passion is movement with nature. As a Yoga instructor and personal trainer, I love to train, teach yoga and just generally be outside. Just over a year ago, I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to start teaching yoga on top of a SUP. .. HEAVEN!

Passionate about stability, balance and mindfulness, I can practice no matter what the wind, water or weather conditions might be. I’m on the water as much as possible, but use the Gigante cushions when I can’t. I position the cushions under the nose & tail of my board, allowing me to have a challenging, stable workout everyday. My yoga practice and strength have improved considerably, and it’s a SUPload of fun right in my own backyard (or living room! )Check it out for yourself . If you have a SUP Board or not, the cushions are the Indo Board GIGIANTE Cushions, and fun to play around with!”

Julie paddles and teaches yoga on the beautiful Winter Park Chain of Lakes in Central Florida. She instructs smaller private groups in basic paddle instruction, yoga and fitness classes in the quiet coves and lakes in and around Orlando. Julie is a Florida native and is a certified yoga instructor and lifeguard. She has created a new board for standup paddle yoga & fitness with Suplove TM, to be introduced at Surf Expo this fall. Look for her in the Suplove booth September 7-10th. She is also a Lululemon Brand Ambassador leading fun & funky events on the water coast to coast!

Indo Board helps Braille Institute kids learn to surf

Every summer Ocean Beach Surf and Skate, Ocean Experience Surf School and Indo Board partner with the San Diego Chapter of the Braille Institute to give visually impaired youth the chance to learn to surf.   While we have been involved in introducing many differnt types people to the experience of riding waves, nothing quite compares to this.  We are stoked that the Indo Board plays a crucial role in helping these visually impaired kids understand the basics of balance and prepares them for an experience that they will never forget.  The surf instructors used the full range of Indo Board products before the surfers entered the water so that they simulate the instability that they would expereince once they were in the water and on their surfboards.  The Indo Board Original (deck with roller underneath) and the Gigante Cushion (large cushion that is placed under a surfboard) played a critical role in helping the instructors assess important variables such as balance, posture and stability before the surfers entered the surf.  This translated into great successes once the kids entered the water.  Seeing the faces of kids, most of whom had never been in the ocean – much less on a surfboard, made this an incredibly gratifying experience for all involved.  To learn more about the San Diego Chapter of the Braille Institute and the amazing work they do with visually impared youth, visit their Facebook Page.
