A zafu meditation cushion relieves stress on your ankles, knees, back and joints while also enabling proper sitting posture. A meditation pillow's ergonomic shape alters the pressure points in a seated position by bootsting your bottom off the floor and opening up your lower body. Many people notice immediate relief in their ankles and increased hip flexibility with continued use. This added relief enables users to practice longer, more comfortable meditations and avoid the discomfort of numb limbs. A little bit of a lift from the floor may be just what your meditation practice needs to grow.
