What is Meditation?
A mental practice focusing on the present moment.
Common meditation postures include the traditional full lotus, half-lotus, kneeling, chair sitting, and lying postures. The ability to meditate in any of the sitting or kneeling postures will vary based on the flexibility of your ankles, knees, and hips. In most cases, some type of support is needed in order to maintain proper spine alignment and comfort during meditation.
Why do I need a meditation cushion?
The mediation cushion will support your sitting posture and improve the comfort level for your mediation. Having your knees lower than your hips takes pressure off your back to creates a natural straightening of the spine creating a harmonious ergonomic posture perfect for extended periods of sitting. Now that your body is in natural alignment, you can focus fully on the flow of your breathing, staying alert and aware throughout your practice. Having a cushion that is aesthetically pleasing is a bonus. Our cushion designs are made to blend into any living room, no matter the decor.
Why else can I use the cushion for?
The cushion can also be used as additional floor seating for group events and as a floor seating while you play with your kids or grandkids. They can also be used as Yoga bolsters during Yoga practices. NOBL Cushions is a safe, fun, and hypoallergenic option for floor seating.
What if I can't sit half lotus, or cross legged?
Our cushions can be propped vertically and straddled for a supported kneeling posture. Our NOBL Triangle cushion is great for this; however, it is recommended you work your way to a cross legged posture, as this the best form for meditation. Yoga and hip stretches are a great way to work your way to an extended practice.
Why are the cushions filled with buckwheat hulls?
Buckwheat hulls are a natural filling that create a firm mold to your body. The hollow half moon shape gives it strength to maintain its firmness, unlike foam beads, the hulls do not compress easily. The half-moon shape allows for breathability, so air flows easily and allows for a cool surface for extended comfort.
The buckwheat hull that does not cause any damage to the environment, no chemicals were used to create it, and animal cruelty-safe. It is renewable and organic so you will have no trouble seeing that the cushion is eco-friendly.
Buckwheat hulls are 100% natural and sustainable. They are hypoallergenic and non-toxic and do not attract dust mites or bugs. Safe for you and your family.
Can I adjust my pillow?
Depending on your flexibility, you may need to take out some buckwheat. You can save the extra buckwheat hulls for future use, or use it as compost as it is 100% organic and natural. If you need to refill your pillow, you can order additional buckwheat hulls through our website.
