In a world filled with stress and anxiety, many people turn to meditation as a way to de-stress and boost self-awareness. The practice of meditation can have numerous physical and mental benefits, including improved sleep, less back pain, numb legs and increased focus.
A Meditation Rug is the perfect solution to add comfort and support to your meditation practice. It provides an ergonomic cushion that is easy to sit on and supports the proper alignment of your spine and hips.
The best type of rug to choose is a soft, wooly fiber that won’t damage the floors of your home or be too thick for the space it will occupy. A rug should also be the right size to cover the area that you plan to meditate, usually around two-thirds of the floor space.
Large rooms: For large living rooms, go for a rug that can fit all your furniture on top and provide enough room for walking on it. It's fine to leave 18''-24'' of space along the edge of the rug if your furniture is tall.
Medium rooms: For medium-sized living rooms, a rug that is around 9'' x 12'' is ideal. Smaller rooms: For smaller spaces, try a rug that is around 8'' x 10''.
The best type of meditation cushion for beginners is a round one because it provides stable support while sitting in the lotus position. This style is also great for those who have knee or hip problems because it provides plenty of room in the front and back.
