Why You need a Meditation Cushion
The human body is neither flat nor predictably curved. Without proper support, your body will succumb to the shape of the surface on which it rests. This generally causes the legs, hips, spine, shoulders, and head to misalign and can result in discomfort.
Meditation cushions can greatly improve your posture and comfort level during meditation. It can raise your hips and upper body so that the legs can rest comfortably. When the spinal column is in its natural alignment, the back, shoulders, neck, and head assume a comfortable upright posture that is easy to maintain during meditation.
