A Meditation Chair from Zen By Design will greatly enhance your meditation practice by creating a comfortable, healthy and nurturing support system for your body. We have been designing and creating the finest, highest quality meditation chairs in the world since our inception in 2001. We are deeply honored to have helped thousands of meditation practitioners in the United States and throughout the world increase their comfort levels and ultimately strengthen their meditation practice. Let’s face it. If you are uncomfortable during meditation, it is nearly impossible to achieve meditative states of mind as you will be completely distracted by your state of disharmony. A meditation chair from Zen By Design is created with your physical and spiritual well- being in mind. When designing a meditation chair, our paramount objective is to create a nurturing support system for your body so that you can sit comfortably in meditation for longer periods of time. We integrate two very important design principles into our meditation chair designs to achieve exceptional comfort levels. We incorporate a gentle, anterior pelvic tilt into each and every meditation chair. When your pelvis is tilted at the proper angle when seated, your spine is encouraged into perfect alignment from it very base. Your sacral, lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine will reveal the natural curvature inherent in a healthy spine. Finding the natural curvature of your spine is so important to overall health and well-being and it is especially vital to a peaceful meditation sitting experience. Our meditation chairs also feature a stellar lumbar support system. This lumbar support system not only feels amazing, but it maintains your perfect spinal alignment with ease. Each meditation chair is handcrafted in the United States of America. We are also the originators of the world-renowned Tantra Chair ®. If meditation is a part of your life or if you plan on incorporating a meditation practice into your life, a meditation chair is essential.
The primary reason most people will be uncomfortable during meditation is that their spine is not aligned correctly. When your spine is not aligned and supported, your body will do everything it can to let you know that it is not happy. You may experience muscle spasms, joint pain, cramping, low back pain, neck and shoulder discomfort, headaches, and so forth. The discomfort levels vary from person to person; however, the primary cause for all of this discomfort is an unsupported spine. How can we possibly reach quiet states of mind when we are distracted by our bodies? It’s nearly impossible! So how do we get around this? What can we do to align the spine? The answer to these questions begins with a straightforward solution. We want to tilt the pelvis forward when seated in meditation. If you can tilt your pelvis forward, your spine aligns at the very base allowing the natural curvature of your sacral, thoracic and cervical vertebrae to follow suit. An adequately designed meditation chair will do this correctly for you. In addition to the anterior pelvic tilt, a meditation chair from Zen By Design will provide you with an incredible and unparalleled back support system. When you combine these two principles, you will surely get a refined meditation sitting experience. A meditation chair from Zen By Design will alleviate any pain and discomfort and encourage you to sit harmoniously for extended lengths of time.
