Moon Rockers / Curved Exercise Boards / Balance Boards.
We call them Moon Rockers. They go by many names and have become popular in many Waldorf school applications for their fantastic ability to help balance and coordination, as well as just plain having fun and being creative. They are also increasing in popularity among adults for many of the same physical reasons as Waldorf schools, including keeping balance sharp.
We never include "instructions" with our boards for the plain and simple reason that being told what to do limits creativity. All activity with the boards must be done by or supervised by a responsible adult. Part of the beauty of such a simple tool, however, is that a creative mind can find all kinds of ways of using the boards. We do recommend, however, that if you are using the board for physiotherapy, please consult an actual physiotherapist to make sure that what you think the consequences of a particular action will be make sense to a professional.
Made from six layers of 3 mm (1/8") plywood, these boards are laminated together in a curved form to produce a curved balance and stretching board that can withstand over 90 kg (200 lbs) of pressure. The boards' edges are all rounded over and the boards are finished with a natural, non-toxic shellac varnish, providing a smooth surface for skin of any age. Each board forms 1/4 of a circle.
