Meditation Chair

While you can meditate virtually anywhere, we all know how uncomfortable and painful it can get to do it on a hard floor, a thin mat, or a traditional chair with arms that restrict your movements. That's why a meditation chair is the right game-changing item to elevate your spiritual time!

These chairs are designed to alleviate both back and body pain, relieving pressure and helping you keep the correct posture for however long it takes you to reach nirvana. Once you no longer have to worry about it, you'll be able to focus on your meditation even more.

It's important to find the right meditation chair for your needs, flexibility and, if you're not planning on storing it away after meditating, your room's interior style.

There are two main options:

  • a chair with back support and no legs promotes proper alignment and it's usually the most comfortable choice, especially if you struggle to maintain the correct position. It also features a fairly space-optimizing and portable design. This versatile type of chair can easily be used for other activities too, like reading or napping;
  • featuring traditional legs, a full chair consists of a slightly elevated seat. Rather than full back support, it focuses on offering more room for your legs, allowing you to try more positions comfortably. While more expensive, it's certainly a remarkable decorative statement, too.

As for materials, cotton cushions are the best at ensuring a comfortable meditation, whereas memory foam options are better at supporting your body.

You also want to consider where you're going to place your chair, so ask yourself: where's the best place for me to meditate? Once you know this, measure it so that you can figure out how much room you've got to play with, and be sure to leave some space for wider movements.

For a consistent look, try and find a chair in one of the colors of your room's palette or, if legs are involved, in one of your existent finishes.
