Bheka round, cotton, zafu cover, filled with organic buckwheat
hulls, is the perfect cushion for sitting meditation, pranayama
practice and anytime you want to sit in comfort in a cross
legged postion. It is important to have your hips above your
knees in seated postures. This eases the strain on your back
muscles, tilts the pelvis forward and brings length and alignment
to the spine. This posture in turn opens the chest and lungs
for deep even breathing. Keep this
in mind when seated on a low chair as well. If your knees are
at the same height as or higher than your hips you would do
well to add a cushion to the seat to save your back.
The organic buckwheat hull filling in this bolster
body for maximum comfort. The side
will allow you to
customize the size of the cushion by adding or removing the fill and to empty
the cover should washing become necessary.
This zafu is covered in durable 100%
cotton twill with a handle for easy carrying. The size is about 14" wide
x 8" tall when fluffed and 16"wide x 6" tall when compressed. Either
way, it weighs about 6 pounds.
For those who want to stuff their own cushion,
hulls, separately, as well.
