Yoga Cushions Australia: Choosing Without Failure!

Practicing yoga is a wonderful way to release the stress you accumulated during busy days at work. But did you know that sitting for long period of time while meditating can be rigorous for your body and physical condition. You are likely to become uncomfortable and feel the pain in your back, not only when sitting in your office in front of your computer doing the everyday tasks, but also while practicing sitting yoga exercises. Everything depends on your spine's ability to maintain the natural curves and the structure of your joints.
To ease the meditation session of the yoga practitioner the market has gone far beyond our imagination in offering plenty of yoga equipment that each should put in the buying cart. Yoga cushions Australia wide range supplies us with, are divided into three types according to their shape. Colour and size vary due to preferences of the individual.

  If you want the cushion to meet your needs, choose one without failure, and here is how:

  • Zafu and Zen pillows. Zafu is a name for traditional and round pillow, that is filled with organic buckwheat hulls and its high is about 12.7 cm. Many people find this pillow height sufficient for comfortable sitting. Zen cushions, on the other hand, are almost the same height as Zafu ones, except that they have a rectangular shape. If you are a type of person that prefers more support while exercising, then opting for Zen pillow is your best choice. There is an interesting fact about these specific pillows and that is that they are adaptable. If cross-sitting does not work well for you, turn your cushion (your choice) on its side, place it between your thighs and sit with your knees bent.

  • Another cushions Australia market greatly offers are the V-shaped yoga pillows. This type is quite similar to the previous type and is filled with organic buckwheat hulls too, except that they are a matter of personal preference. If you practice sitting meditation daily, V-shaped pillow can work just fine, because it slants downward so that it supports your entire leg and at the same time encourages your pelvis to tilt forward. A lot of people opt for this type as their favourite one, but you will have to check and see if it works the same for you and your meditation needs.

  • At last, Zabuton cushions are a little bit different that Zafu, Zen and V-shaped type. These meditation mat has been used for centuries as an everyday sitting cushion among the Asian nation, especially the Japanese. They are wide with a rectangular shape that measures 50/70 cm on a side, are several centimeters thick (when new) because they are filled with cotton, and they come with a removable cotton cover. Zabuton cushions can be purchased in three sizes, starting from small, medium to large size, and can be used alone or under Zafu or Zan.
    Using this specific kind can work miracles and can create more comfortable surface while you meditate. Having your ankle bones, knees and feet pressing against a hard floor can become painful within time, that is why it is recommendable every yoga practitioner to place one underneath the cushion in order to create some extra padding. Your ankle and knees will be thankful, that is what we guarantee you.
