Zabuton is a meditation cushion that eases the cramps one might have during long meditation sessions by supporting and aligning the body. It facilitates the proper circulation of blood to the legs as you sit in different postures while meditating. The Zabuton meditation cushion helps your backbone remain in the right position so that energy can flow freely.
As you cross your legs during meditation, your knees can rest on the surface of the Zabuton easily without causing you any strain. The cushion prevents your ankles from aching or remaining on the hard floor. Due to the thick padded surface of a zabuton, it insulates your knees preventing them from aching.
Some people place a second meditation pillow (Zafu) on top of the Zabuton to increase comfort as it can cushion your ankles and knees. The pose also comes elevated and easier to hold by placing a Zafu on top of the Zabuton. This combination allows you to maintain a tripod position during your session. If you do not have Zafu available and need elevation, just fold a section of the Zabuton underneath your legs to raise the pelvis.
Zabuton is perfect for meditation, yoga and exercise training. Also suitable as an interior element.
