The Pivotal meditation Chair is intended for sitting in the half lotus position. You can comfortably place one heel underneath the top of the stool (when turned higher side in front) while placing the other foot on the other leg (please see first photo).
When turned lower side in front, ayou can place one foot on the seat of the chair while placing the other foot on that upper leg part. It is perfect for Fudosa/ Sage position as you would slide onto the perineum right on the heel under your weight. Creates an easy Mula Bandha (root lock). This seals the 1st chakra energy and allows upward flow. (please see second photo)
You can also use it to stretch your back gently as you would lay on it with your back adjusting the lower part of the sooll above the tailbone area, and higher part would come up to little bit above the middle of the back. You would stretch your arms above your head and that would help extend the spinal column.
Instructions for positioning on the chair:
Placing the heel of one of your foot underneath the higher side of the Pivotal meditation stool would align your spine into perfect posture.
Placing the heel of one foot, or the whole foot on the lower side of the chair allows the other foot to be placed on the thigh of that leg.
You can turn it around on either side as you see fit depending on your sitting style (please see photos of girl sitting).
All of our meditation chairs and cushions help improve your posture while sitting or meditating. They keep you in line by the very nature of their design; as you sit they guide you. Our meditation chairs give the feel of a lessened pull of gravity and make your body want to sit in posture friendly positions, relieving the physical pain or discomfort that can be associated with meditating. Adjustment for a perfect posture and balance is almost immediate. These gravity-neutral cushion chairs relax your spine column from usual pressure.
These meditation chairs are perfect for meditation classes (as we sell many of these to yoga and meditation studios).
Fabric: brocades and home decor
Brocade is a class of richly decorative shuttle-woven fabrics, often made in colored silks and with or without gold and silver threads. It is a mainstay that has timeless appeal in home interior design and decor.
Home decor fabric is very popular type of fabric. It is durable and thicker than brocade. It goes wonderfully with most home decor as it has highly appealing designs.
Please see our other listings to get an idea about what type of fabric you would like.
Wood: We use pine and douglas fir woods which are finished with a mahogany stain. Then we add the cushion made with foam and fabric of your choice using staples and decorative nails.
These meditation stools are made for you when you order. We handcraft your chair in Boulder, Colorado.
Your meditation is to be enjoyed!
