Seiza Meditation Bench Cushions and Pillows


Seiza Meditation Bench Cushion and Pillow

Seiza benches are great for kneeling meditations. They take the pressure off your ankles and your legs so you can kneel while you meditate for longer without distracting pain. However, sometimes wooden seiza benches can still be a little uncomfortable for your bottom.

If you need a little more cushion to help make meditation more comfortable on your seiza bench, it is easy to buy a bench cushion. This cushion will make the hard seat of your meditation bench softer and allow you to meditate longer without distraction.

Depending on your preference for filling, there are many different options available. Meditation bench pillows also give you a chance to express yourself, finding colored fabrics or designs that you love or picking something that matches the decor of your meditation space.

Here are a few beautiful and comfortable seiza cushions for you to consider for your meditation seat.
