das.Brett supports intuitive, imagination play and exercise for children, and fitness for teens and adults.
Children balance, wobble, kneel, or lie on the board. They turn it into a slide, a bridge, or a pirate ship! Its simplicity stimulates their creativity.
Teens and adults use it for high- and low-intensity exercise, for agility, endurance, strength, balance and coordination:
- Each das.Brett comes with a booklet of 65 cardio-vascular, strength, and yoga exercises (download a copy here);
- Enjoy 18 two-minute tutorial videos by professional yoga teachers who use das.Brett in their classes here.
For Brett yoga, for a softer grip for hands and feet, or to stabilise the board upside-down, add die.Rollen natural-cork rolls that fit perfectly on the board edges.
das.Brett only comes in one size - it's good for kids and adults, up to 19 stone (120kg) bodyweight.
