Through the many years of experience and publications of the physician Jon Kabat-Zinn, meditation has lost its esoteric touch. It is now highly recognized as an effective means against stress and an important component of many therapies. Especially in the time of increasing pressure on people, the positive effect of regular meditation becomes apparent. It helps to calm down, relax and is recommended for many diseases, such as widespread depression.
What do I need for meditation?
For meditation you only need a place of silence or inner contemplation. This can be outside in the nature, in the yoga class or at home. The regularity with which this exercise is carried out is important. For meditation it is best to adopt a seated posture. Since people in the West are not used to sitting on the ground, a meditation seat can be very helpful for them. In addition to meditation cushions, special meditation benches are particularly suitable.
The advantages of a meditation bench
Meditation benches offer many advantages for meditation. In contrast to sitting on a chair, the construction of the meditation bench promotes upright sitting. This straightens the spine, improves the flow of energy and promotes deep breathing. Everything facilitates the meditative deepening. The more comfortable or undisturbed one sits during meditation, the easier it is to contemplate within. Choosing the right meditation seat is therefore an important building block for successful meditation.
What to consider when choosing a meditation bench
There are several factors to consider when choosing a meditation seat. A tall person needs a higher seat than a small person. Physical limitations such as knee or back problems must be taken into account. A folding bench is practical if the bank is to travel or be taken to meditation or yoga classes. After all, every bank is a question of personal taste and money.
There is a wide selection of meditation benches at Ongnamo:
- Those who want to take the bank with them are well advised with collapsible models, such as the meditation bench Comfort Travel, World Travel or the "i-om" meditation seat. All three can also be stored at home to save space.
- Upholstered benches such as the "Bali" model or the award-winning "Shambala" offer high seating comfort. All upholstered benches are lovingly handcrafted by Clément in Alsace and offer many exclusive details such as integrated handles or freedom for the coccyx.
- If you want to use a meditation bench together with another person, you should choose a height-adjustable model such as the "Vario" bench. The right height can be set quickly and easily here.
- Especially comfortable is the meditation seat "Cosmo", where you can sit comfortably for a long time. It is foldable and is particularly popular with people with knee problems, as the legs are not angled here.
