We designed our Silk and Wool Wedge Meditation Cushion with the help of meditation and posture experts, and instructions from Paramahansa Yogananda, for the specific purpose of meditation on a chair. It is unequaled in support and comfort.
Here is why this is the best wedge cushion for meditation:
It is tapered at exactly the right angle to help roll the pelvis forward and help the spine relax with its own natural curve.
It is covered with 100% wool on the bottom and 100% Dupioni silk from India on the top —insulation from disruptive earth currents (according to Paramahansa Yogananda's instructions).
A specific combination of high-density foam for support and and memory foam for comfort
Removable coccyx (tailbone) section can provide additional comfort or reduce pressure.
The cover can be removed and dry cleaned.
16" wide x 15" - to fit most any chair
Thickness: 3.75" back / 1.75" front
Available in two gorgeous colors : Royal Blue & Copper Brown
Made here in Southern California, supporting local businesses!
There's a big problem with most chairs— they arenotdesigned for meditation!It’s very difficult to have good posture on a chair. And chairs cannot be adjusted. But problems bring solutions! And the solution is a wedge cushion
The wedge cushion fixes the backwards slope of chairs. This allows your pelvis to roll forward and create the natural curve of the lumbar, which results in an open chest, allowing for full and relaxed breathing and an ‘open heart’. Your back muscles can relax when the posture is correct.
About Dupioni Silk
Dupioni (meaning "double") Silk is produced when two or more silkworms spin their cocoons closely together. These slightly tangled cocoons produce filament that is rough, uneven and not as strong as cultivated silk. It is usually reeled and used to make fine or heavy yarns with pronounced irregular slubs at random intervals. Dupioni silk usually comes from cultivated, rather than wild, silkworms because their living quarters are more crowded, increasing their chances of tangling the cocoons. The irregular, crosswise ribs of Dupioni are formed by filling yarns that have occasional soft, thick lumps. The lumps, or slubs, add texture and visual interest to the fabric. This fabric is medium in weight, with a crisp, scrunchy hand, uneven texture and, generally, a very shimmery luster.
We have a small amount of these made and may not be able to get these exceptional colors again!
