All About Meditation Cushions

December 04, 2019

All About Meditation Cushions l The Community Hub l Mukha YogaBefore I ever used meditation cushions, I used pillows from my couch and folded up blankets—anything that would lift my hips a little and provide some sort of respite to my lower back. While my inventions were okay as placeholders, they did not make sitting for long periods of time comfortable or fun. It felt a little like plain yogurt tastes: smooth but lacking flavor.

The first time I used a meditation cushion, however, my hips and lower back rejoiced in the comfort. There was no question that this invention had been made for this exact experience and it made meditating that much easier and so much more enjoyable. I equated it to blueberry yogurt: creamy and bursting with flavor!

Here are my top four favorite meditation cushions:

  • Made with a 100% cotton cover that can be unzipped and washed and natural buckwheat hulls that provide just the right firmness
  • Handmade in Canada

When choosing your meditation cushion, I recommend asking yourself three things. First, how do you sit when you meditate (legs tucked to the side, legs crossed, on your knees)? What colors and patterns do you want your meditation to include? For example, a bright orange cushion might not make you feel as blissed out as would a light gray one. And lastly, as with all purchases, what kind of impact do you want to make on the world and who do you want to give to?
