Benefits of meditation set
Sitting on a meditation cushion gives your hips extra height, allowing your pelvis to tilt forward and your spine to maintain its natural curves.
Your body is neither flat nor curved exactly like anyone else’s. And without proper support, your body will form to the shape of whatever you are sitting on.
This causes your body to misalign and can result in pain or discomfort. When your spine is in its natural curve, it supports itself. Then there’s no need to use muscular energy to sit up straight.
The other benefit of an easeful sitting posture is that you can breathe more easily when you’re not using your core muscles to hold you up. This also helps you maintain your energy while sitting.
Why use a meditation mat and cushion set?
Sukhasana is the traditional seated position for meditation, but this method is not the best for everyone. Everyone’s hip joints rotate differently, causing them to sit in different positions for optimal comfort.
If your knees fall below your hip bones while you are seated in a cross-legged position, this means that your hip joints easily rotate externally.
If your knees tend to rise higher than your hip bones, it means that your hip joints are more inclined to rotate internally, which will make sitting for extended periods uncomfortable.
That’s exactly when you need a supportive meditation mat and cushion set to sit comfortably.
You will know that you have the right cushion when you feel your spine can support itself without effort.
Why buy a meditation mat?
A meditation mat or zabuton provides extra support to your knees, lower legs, and ankles. In addition, a meditation mat in a room adds to the atmosphere and invites even more to meditate.
Supporting your Zafu pillow with a Zabuton mat adds another element of ease to your sitting practice.
When you sit, especially for extended periods, the bones in your feet and ankles can grind into a hard floor.
Placing a Zabuton underneath your Zafu eliminates this problem. It also adds an extra layer of insulation if you’re sitting in a cool room.
Also, think about where your cushions will go in your living space. Will they fit with your other decor?
Consider the color options that we offer. You will want your meditation room to be beautiful and peaceful, so it is a good idea to consider the colors in the room and make sure that they achieve the desired effect.
Material and filling
The Zabuton mat is filled with felt sheets of recycled wool fibers, and the Zafu pillow is filled with organic buckwheat hulls.
Comfortable and Healthy
Wool adds loft for comfort and resilience for sitting in meditation. Yogis, through the ages, have recommended wool for meditation for the insulation it provides from subtle energies emanating from the earth, which tend to hold consciousness down.
It has been found that wool Zabutons allow for greater circulation to keep the legs and feet from falling asleep.
Buckwheat hulls contain theanine, a substance that hinders the development and reproduction of dust mites and bacteria.
It adapts to the position of the lying person, absorbs perspiration, and neutralizes harmful electromagnetic radiation.
Our renewable eco-wool comes from leftovers of Indian factories. It saves a significant amount of water, reduces land use for sheep grazing, and avoids using chemicals for dyeing.
All the fabric in this set is made of 100% organic cotton.
Our cotton is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. The label was founded in 2006 and aimed to become the international standard for organic cotton.
It does not only look at the organic production and processing of the fabrics but also the fair and humane treatment of people in the production chain.
Therefore, it is an inclusive label that can ensure consumers of an ethical production process that protects the earth and the workers.
The packaging, too, has a significant impact on sustainability and matters to us as the final product.
All our products are paper wrapped and shipped in paper-based packaging.
Since we aim to minimize our carbon footprint, we constantly look for solutions to bring us to a carbon-neutral state.
We, therefore, encourage you not to throw anything into the trash, as everything is perfectly recyclable.
