Meditation chair

Post by dhammarelax »

I am looking to buy a few meditation chairs with a back rest so I am looking for a relativly inexpensive solution, has anyone had a good experience with any product like that?

Smile all the time

Do you rest your back on the wall?

I have to admit that photo is not my meditation set up. However, mine is very similar. I try to maintain posture, but sometimes I do rest my back against the wall for brief periods.

There are many other different meditation benches. Zafus are also good (but the following suggestions still apply). Look around online and on various other forums and stores.

Make sure the seller is reputable and allows returns, since you will know if it is good only after a decent amount of use. A variation in angle of a few degrees—especially during long meditation sessions—can be the difference between a meditation bench and a backache dispenser. :smile: Trying it in person is even better, but still make sure returns are possible.

The one I wanted to buy before was this one: http://www.bluecony.com/meditation-bench-ikuko (seize position). I didn't buy it, so I can't give you completely reliable information. I did try it in person and it was pretty comfortable. I didn't look up the shipping and returns, so make sure to do that.

I find that if I have 2 smaller cushions to support each knees, I have less tendency to get the excruciating leg pain. Anybody feel the same way?

Yes. I use one smaller cushion to support one knee and it makes a huge difference in terms of stability and relieving knee pain.
