A meditation chair or bench is one of the meditation supplies that allows you to sit comfortably for long periods of time. It may look like an uncomfortable way to sit but trust me, it’s super comfy!
Over long periods of time, you won’t get any aches or pains due to the way the meditation chair helps you to sit upright and with your legs tucked underneath the stool you are not restricting blood flow or doing anything that could make your legs ache.
The biggest problem I have sitting on the floor or my bed with legs crossed is that after about 15 – 20 minutes I start to get pins and needles in my legs and they go a bit number because of the restriction of blood flow.
This is what influenced me to look into different ways of sitting and then I came across what’s called a Meditation Chair, Bench or Stool.
Below I have reviewed my favorite meditation benches and if you are determined to become better at meditation I strongly suggest you think about getting one for yourself. As they are generally made out of wood you may want to look at getting a good buckwheat meditation cushion instead.
