Whether you’re just beginning your meditation journey or you’re a seasoned meditator looking to take your practice to the next level, a Meditation Cushion Set will help you find equanimity and peace. These zen-centric sets are designed to ensure you’re sitting correctly and support your knees, hips, and spine during your meditation sessions.
Zafu (pronounced zwah-foo) cushions are small and firm, helping to raise your hips and keep your spine aligned during meditation. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and filling options, but most feature buckwheat hulls for posture support.
Yoga bolsters are flatter and more comfortable for meditation than traditional yoga blocks, but can also be used as an alternative to a zafu in classic postures like supine twists or shavasana. They are available in a variety of materials and colors to match your favorite yoga mat or stand out on their own.
Bolsters are typically rectangular pillows filled with buckwheat hulls that offer increased comfort and posture support during a variety of yoga and meditative practices. They are often used with a zafu and a zabuton to support your seat, legs, and feet during your meditation session.
If you’re concerned about the environment, this pair of eco-friendly bolsters from Gaiam is a great choice. They’re made from wadding remnants leftover from the textile industry, which will prevent them from ending up in landfills.
The zafu in this set is sturdy, padded with a natural kapok filling that adds extra stability to your practice and can withstand weight up to 350 pounds. Its premium double seams give it added durability and it’s easy to roll up for storage or travel.
