Welcome to Meditation Cushions...
...what are they, different types and where can I buy.

What are Meditation Cushions?

Meditation Cushions are quite simply the cushion you rest on when meditating. There come in different styles, shapes, sizes and materials.

What different types of Meditation Cushions are there?

Here are the 6 most common meditation/yoga cushions available:

1. Single Fold Meditation Cushion

This meditation cushion has an attached folding bolster.

2. Double Fold Meditation Cushion

This is a longer folding meditation cushion with an attached folding bolster.

3. Small Meditation/Yoga Mat

A small mat suitable for meditation or yoga.

4. Zabuton Mat/Cushion

Is a rectangular mat/cushion that make sitting or kneeling on the floor for long periods of time far more comfortable. Usually used in conjunction with a Zafu cushion and typically sold in a set with a Zafu.

5. Zafu Cushion

Traditionally a round pleated cushion stuffed with Kapok (a fluffy plant fibre from Asia). It is usually used in meditation or Yoga. A Zafu is often placed upon a Zabuton mat or cushion and is sold as a set.

6. Foldable Meditation/Yoga Cushion

A foldable meditation/yoga support cushion with carrying straps.

What type of Meditation Cushion should I buy?

If you are a beginner or want the most comfortable position when meditating we recommend the Zafu/Zabuton combination. However, if you are experienced or more flexible you could opt for one of the lower meditation/yoga cushions, The general rule of thumb is the more flexible you are, the lower you can sit.
