When you meditate you want to eliminate as many distractions as possible to allow you to focus on your breath and clear your mind of thoughts. Sometimes the biggest distraction during meditation is our own body. If you’re uncomfortable, or even in pain, it can be impossible to focus and successfully meditate.

Meditation chairs can help enhance and improve your practice in many ways. They can create a more comfortable seat, especially if your home has hardwood floors that are not pleasant to sit on for long periods of time. They also can provide much needed back support if you have issues sitting up straight without support.

We’ve divided the different types of meditation chairs into categories so you can easily find the chair that will help your practice the most.
