Smile Meditation Cushion

The smile zafu was designed to help promote a sense of joy…

The smile or crescent-shaped cushion, also known as a zafu, is a type of meditation cushion that is designed to provide support and comfort during seated meditation practice. Unlike traditional round zafus, smile cushions have a curved design that resembles a half-moon or “smile” shape

*Our smile cushions can be used alone or in combination with other meditation cushions, such as a zabuton.

Why a Smile Meditation Pillow...

The smile cushion is used as a support cushion for meditation practice

  • The ergonomic crescent shaped design is intended to help maintain the natural curve of the spine and provide support to the hips and lower back. This contour helps promote a more comfortable and aligned seated posture during meditation.

  • Its versatility allows for a variety of sitting positions, including cross-legged, kneeling, or half-lotus. The cushions are often preferred by practitioners who favor a slightly higher seat or those who have tight hips or limited flexibility.

  • Its wider base provides stability and prevents the cushion from shifting or rolling during meditation. This stability can be especially helpful for longer meditation sessions.

  1. Kristin

    I received the zabuton and smile cushion this afternoon and could not be happier with your products! Beautiful, comfortable, just what I needed/wanted. Thank you all so much for all your help and kindness. This was a large purchase for me and I am happy to say that these cushions are everything that you claim them to be and well worth it.

    Kind regards,

    I bought a Smile Cushion and Sitting May well over 10 years ago – best purchase ever. The crescent shape of the cushion allows ample room for cross-legged sitting, is sturdy and comfortable, and in its own way, invites meditation day after day. Th am you for your conscientious and value-based business.

    I wish I had one of these a long time ago. I have been using different zafus over the years and this is the most comfortable I have ever used. My legs don’t fall asleep with the crescent and aligns my back beautifully. I have used your cushions for a long time and love the quality of your products. Everyone I have talked to has been helpful and friendly. Thank you again!

What Our Customers Are Saying

I just purchased your Smile Cushion from Dancing Moon in Raleigh, NC this afternoon and couldn’t be happier!!

I normally have horrible low back pain and numbness going down through my legs and haven’t had any all evening!!

My husband and I are looking forward to purchasing more of your products as we begin to streamline our life and getting rid of the excess “stuff”.

Thank you for making such a wonderful product and for being an ethically green and sound company.
