In this category you will find an excellent selection of hand crafted meditation cushions, zafus and bolsters. By encouraging correct posture in the body they will help aid a more comfortable meditation session. This is achieved by raising the height of your pelvis, thus helping to relax and ground the rest of your body. Your back is relieved from strain and circulation in the legs is also improved. By relieving discomfort in the body it ensures that you can focus solely on your meditation. They are therefore an indispensable practice support for those who meditate regularly.

Pleated Crescent Zafu - Buckwheat
Our Price: £36.95

Our crescent-shaped zafu slopes from 7.5" at the back to 4.5" at the front which ensures you pelvis remains above your knees, which is essential for extra  sitting comfort.

Being approximately two thirds the size of a round zafu also makes it relatively lighter and more convenient to store and transport.

The cushion is pleated for extra durability and is filled with natural buckwheat hulls. They naturally conform to your body shape, whilst providing a stable platform to sit on. The cushion has a convenient handle for easy carrying and a hidden zip allows you to add or remove buckwheat hulls to adjust the loft to suit you.
