First, let's understand what meditation is and how it is defined. Meditation is a mental discipline in which one attempts to get their mind into a deeper state of relaxation and awareness. Meditation involves placing your attention to one point of reference.
Now with clear understanding of the need to be relaxed in order to meditate properly, it is important to be able to get your body into that state by sitting comfortably. Creating that unique and special place of ease has never been simpler with the use of meditation chairs and furniture. Here is where I can help you find the perfect piece that will not only get you to that state of relaxation quickly, but will look beautiful in your home.
First, there is the SEAGRASS MEDITATION CHAIR. Designed by a long time practitioner of meditation the Seagrass Meditation Chair was inspired by a need to sit comfortably in a contemplative manner. While sitting closer to the ground provides an unmatched sense of grounding the contemporary westerner often needs something more supportive than just a pillow on the floor.
By lifting the hips a comfortable distance from the floor this low profile chair allows the legs and feet to rest more naturally either on the floor or pulled up on the cushion in the traditional style of the East. In addition the sturdy back rest and pillow provide just the support needed making the Seagrass Meditation Chair the perfect platform for a peaceful sitting experience.
The Seagrass Chair is woven by Indonesian craftsmen from renewable seagrass over a sturdy mango wood frame and was designed to be both a stylish and ecological addition to your home. Also includes washable cotton cushion covers for practicality as children love these chairs too. The perfect choice for those looking for simplicity and harmony.
The next option is the beautiful RAJA MEDITATION CHAIR. The newly arrived Raja Meditation Chair is the latest in a line of finely crafted meditation furniture for the home or studio. The name "Raja" comes from the Sanskrit word for "royalty" and sitting in this chair will definitely help bring out your inner King or Queen.
The Raja Chair is also made from sustainable materials including a seat and back of woven banana leaf and a solid mango wood frame. In addition this piece features carved legs and decorative flower on the seat as well as coconut wood accents on the back. It also has shorter style arms to help support the arms while still allowing the legs to be crossed if desired.
As always, only water base finishes are used to protect the wood and minimize strain on your health and the environment. Cushions are made of natural kapok stuffing with removable cotton covers for washing. Unlike anything else we think you will find the Raja Chair to be a unique piece for either meditation or simply creating alternative seating arrangements in your home or studio.
The third option is the ECOPOD MEDITATION CHAIR. It's redesigned and has been modified from its predecessor for increased comfort and support while retaining its lovely curved shape. Constructed now from the same durable seagrass weave as the other meditation furniture the Ecopod now has a slanted forward seat to aid in proper spinal alignment while sitting. Lightweight and sustainable materials make the Ecopod an attractive and unique piece to show in your home while providing a perfect platform for supported meditation. Now available in 2 waterbase finishes (Natural & Espresso) with 2 different colored washable cushion covers (Cream & Mocha).
And the last chair that would be a good buy for you is the RATTAN LOTUS MEDITATION CHAIR. This amazing chair is made from 100% natural rattan over a bamboo frame. This unique piece of furniture was handcrafted by the finest artisans in Asia, taking several days to create. It is a beautiful addition to any space in your yoga studio, home, office or spa. The dimensions are approximately 20" high, 34" wide and 28" deep so it doesn't dominate or impose upon your quiet meditation space. You will feel more peaceful as soon as you sit down in this chair.
The design of this meditation chair is made to reflect the way we look when sitting in lotus during your yoga or meditation practice. Additionally, the design enables you to sit comfortably in an upright position with back support into the upper thoracic spine (depending on your height). You will feel your hips relaxing after about 5 minutes in the chair. The unique design of this meditation chair also promotes correct positioning of the body which helps to establish more effective breathing patterns, which is a tremendous health benefit for all of us. It also provides us with an opportunity to achieve deeper levels of meditation. This style of meditation chair is often selected by gurus and for those who meditate a great deal. Also comes with cushion and weighs 22lbs.
All 4 of these beautiful chairs are available to you. The Seagrass and Raja Chair links are below, while the Eco-Pod and Rattan Lotus can be found on that same website. I have done my research and this webstore offers these chairs at the lowest price available because they offer free shipping, so the price you see, is the price you pay, while others are charging an additional charge to get it to you. Hope you enjoy your new meditation chairs.
