Meditation Cushions and Benches
Why Sit Like This?
Natural Sitting on the floor is an art almost entirely lost by modern culture. This way of sitting has been practiced for centures to deepen breathing and kundalini flow during meditation.
Our modern world is jammed with business and thoughts which can create stress and keep us living a superficial life. Meditation allows us to dive deep into the essence of what this life is about so we can alliviate suffering and the root causes of suffering.
Our products are the building blocks of creating a personal sanctuary. It is nice to have a room or corner set aside where you can go anytime and treat yourself to some silence and bliss.
Customize your meditation space using our variety of shapes and sizes, colors and stuffing materials. You can tweak it to get it just right. These products can be used for yoga as well as simple furniture.
Zafu, Smile Cushion™, Zabuton, Peace Bench™, Sky Bench™, Tilt Seat™, Support Cushion
Zafu (za foo)
The Zafu is the original meditation seat which originated in the Orient centuries ago. You can choose your stuffing material (kapok or buckwheat hulls) as well as your size (medium or large). Comes with carry handle and optional removable cover.
The Smile Cushion™ is really a crescent shaped zafu. Some people find this more comfortable because it has more surface area for sitting. You can choose your stuffing material (kapok or buckwheat hulls). One size fits all. Comes with carry handle and optional removable cover.
Zabuton (za boo tan)
The Zabuton is the floor mat with multiple uses. For a comfortable meditation place the Zafu, Smile Cushion™, Peace Bench™, or Sky Bench™ on the zabuton. Comes in your choice of sizes (medium, large, jumbo). The stuffing material is kapok and an optional removable cover is available.
The Peace Bench™ is normally used in the kneeling position. Rounded legs allow you to get your perfect angle. Comes apart like a Chinese puzzle so you can take it with you wherever you go. Comes in three sizes (small, medium, large), and has an optional bench cushion and carry bag.
The Sky Bench™ is a taller and wider version of the Peace Bench™ with flat legs. It is designed for sitting in Easy Pose (Sukassana) position. It is particularly suited to people with limited flexibility. Comes apart like a Chinese puzzle so you can take it with you wherever you go. Comes in one size with optional cushion.
The Tilt Seat™ is one of our most versatile products. The forward tilted angle aligns your spine for active sitting and deeper meditation while sitting at chair height. This chair provides similar benefits to floor sitting without going all the way to the floor. It is also used for several other purposes such as a floor sitting desk and a standing desk. Comes apart like a Chinese puzzle. Comes in three sizes and with optional cushion.
And check out our amazing Inflatable Zafu. You will literally be sitting on air with this ultimate portable meditation cushion. Designed for the meditator on the go! It is durable enough for outdoor use, easily washable, and can be inflated in seconds.
Placed beneath your Zafu or Smile Cushion™, the Support Cushion helps you customize your sitting height.
