Meditation and Yoga practitioners often use cushions, bolsters, zafus, and shawl-style blankets to enhance their practice. Cushions, sometimes referred to as Zafus or Zabutons, serve a specific purpose during seated meditation or after yoga sessions when it's time to calm and still the mind. These cushions are designed to be firm and round, providing a stable and comfortable base for meditation. They help elevate the hips, allowing the spine to naturally align, which in turn reduces strain on the lower back and knees. These supportive accessories are valuable tools for those seeking a more comfortable and effective meditation and yoga experience.
Meditation cushions come in various shapes, sizes, and materials to accommodate individual preferences and body types.
Yoga Bolsters: Yoga bolsters are elongated, supportive cushions that are commonly used in yoga practice, particularly in restorative and yin yoga styles. They provide gentle support to various parts of the body, such as the back, knees, and abdomen, during restful and relaxing poses. Bolsters help practitioners ease into postures and allow for longer holds, promoting relaxation and deep stretching.
We are pleased to sell a Meditation Cushion for those that practice Yoga and Meditation; of which is supplied by Brand Sacred Essence.
