Gaiam Zafu Meditation Cushion, Black
A round meditation cushion is called a Zafu. The traditional zafu was made with kapok, a fluffy cotton-like material that comes from the Kapok trees.
This Zafu is made with organic buckwheat hulls which more people prefer now. Why? The hulls conform to the shape of your body making your meditation experience more comfortable. Anything that can assist you in being in good posture and comfortable is a good thing. That is why so many people now prefer the buckwheat filled Zafu.
Also, this Zafu has an external zipper so you can add hulls and remove them to your liking.
It also has a great little handle to bring your Zafu with you to your meditation or yoga class.
When meditating, a Zafu is usually placed in the middle of a Zabuton cushion, and your bum is in the middle of the Zafu. Get your Zafu and Zabuton in coordinating colors. You don’t want to be a distraction in the shrine room.
I have an old kapok Zafu that I am constantly fluffing up and restuffing. I cannot take the cover off mine to clean it. This is the Zafu that is going to replace mine. I highly recommend.
