In any posture during meditation, a firm foundation, proper alignment to support the body and breath, and comfort are important. Meditation Cushions are essential in achieving comfort so that one can focus on the mind and not be distracted by physical unease. When beginning a meditation session it is useful to focus on the body for a short time to take notice of any areas of the body that need additional support or adjustment. There are many cushions available for meditation. It is important to take the time to think about each of the designs and how they can best suit your personal needs. Consider the height of the cushions, whether the fabric is durable yet soft, and how the fill will support your body. The color of the Meditation Cushion may not be too important in terms of your meditation session, but many people order our Meditation Cushions for sheer aesthetic or decor reasons. All our Meditation Cushions are handmade in Thailand but delivered promptly from our Santa Fe warehouse.
