This big meditation cushion is a great seat with a wonderful pedigree. Its history is a fun story and its future is full of possibities. Plus, it is just what you need for maximum comfort in a variety of restorative poses.
The Bheka Turtle is line extension brought on by the huge popularity of the Bheka Tadpole. While I know lots of people who love their Tadpoles as meditation or pranyama seats I personally do not. For short sits the Tadpole is fine but for longer sits my particular butt wants a bit more support. I also do a lot of chair work on folding chairs either seated or in some state of lying on the chair, so I measured a folding chair seat and made the Turtle to fit on it. It still works great on the floor and it is perfect for use as a folding chair cushion. In addition it incorporates two of the great features of the Tadpole. It has the beautiful soft flocked poyester cover and the molding comfort of organic buckwheat hull filling.
Just having these comfortable and lovely cushions around is a call to practice. I keep finding new ways to employ them. Here are a few of my favorites modeled by one of my favorite people ;--).
Sit fully on the cushion for leg support or closer to the edge of the cushion for pelvic tilt and straight back.
Pharoah pose on a folding chair was never this relaxing before the Turtle came along.
Spinal Twist and Legs on Chair are more comfortable with the support of the Bheka Turtle.
And check out these relaxing stretches you can totally melt into using your Bheka Turtle.
This gentle side stretch feels wonderful and opens and extends the spine! If you do this on a chair be prepared for a very deep experience.
This is a lovely restorative back stretch. It can be deepened with two or even 3 Turtles. When you are ready for supported wheel find your folding chair!
Anything that makes a great chair cushion also makes a great headstand prop! The headstander we sell is comfortable but this is even easier on your shoulders and neck. In fact I've never experienced a supported headstand this relaxing before. The buckwheat hulls uniquely mold to one's shoulders and completely disperses all pressure.
Here is the set up. I use kitchen chairs because the legs on folding chairs stick out on the sidesnear the seat and interfere with the user's neck.
Put your head between the Turtles and bend your knees. Then press up into supported headstand. Once you are settled and your feet have found the wall you can let the arms completely go and totally relax. Ahhhhh...
Wow that was quite a workout! Now it is time for total relaxation. Of course the Turtle is ready to help there too!
