One of our goals at Carolina Morning is to adapt furniture from floor sitting cultures into the modern setting. Floor Seats come in a variety of styles – from the traditional Japanese Zafu to the Tibetan Kneeling Bench and Native America Tipi Chair that we call the Eco Backrest™. These seats help create a comfortable floor living environment. You can sit in a variety of positions as shown in the photos.
Most Americans are unaware of floor sitting furniture that floor based cultures have developed for many years. These simple seats provide far more comfort than the typical throw pillow can. Our floor seats offer you either a lounge position (as in the Eco Backrest™) or an active sitting position that establishes alignment, balance and comfort (as in the Zafu, Smile Cushion, and Meditation Benches).
Sitting down in a chair does funny things to our bodies. It stretches out our glutes, making them inactive, loose, and weak. People by and large no longer know how to activate their butt muscles due to excessive amounts of chair sitting. Sitting in a chair also keeps the hip flexors in a short, tight, contracted position for extended amounts of time, which can inhibit full hip extension and lead to that hunched over position you often see older folks shuffling around with. And that’s not even mentioning the extensive (and growing) literature showing how sitting for too long increases mortality and degenerative disease. Read more in our Blog Posts!
