Using a meditation cushion when you meditate can be a great way to enhance your practice.
The best position varies for each participant. Some sit on the couch propped up by pillows, others choose the dining table chairs because if they get too comfortable they may fall asleep. Some lay flat on the floor, while others lay flat on cushions. And a few of us use our meditation cushions.
There is nothing worse than struggling with physical discomfort when you are striving for mental discipline and spiritual connection. Pins and needles play on your mind and draw you back into the room. We know we will be in meditation from anywhere between 30 and 50 minutes and comfort and practicality is paramount.
Meditation Cushion lift the sitting bones off the floor so that the pelvis can tilt forward. This allows the spine to rest in its natural position. Others wise the person am likely to slouch, which creates muscular tension in the neck and shoulders and reduces the free movement of the rib cage. Sitting strait and tall can be the most ergonomic position, and allows for easy breathing.
The meditation cushion also allows for the correct alignment of the 7 chakras. Users feel a greater free flow of energy when sitting in this fashion.
Striving for physical comfort is the priority.
