Meditation Cushions

  • American-Made Yoga Products

    In recent years, there’s been a whole lot of discussion about “buying American.” Truth be told, it’s not as easy as it once was. In the mid-20th century, manufacturing led the U.S. economy. More recently, companies have chosen to cut labor costs and move their facilities elsewhere. Manufacturing products in the U.S. not only provides American jobs: it’s also more sustainable for our environment. Foreign-made products have to travel a long way to get to their final destinations. That travel starts with huge cargo ships that run on the cheapest diesel fuel available. These goods are then loaded onto heavy-polluting...

    Sitting meditation isn’t easy. And I’m not just talking about the ever-wandering mind. The actual act of sitting is an art and science in its own right.

That’s why Hugger Mugger designed the V-Shaped Meditation Cushion. How do you know if you have hip joints that externally rotate easily? Sit cross-legged on a folded blanket (3-5 inches thick).

  • 3 Ways to Sit on a Zen Meditation Cushion

    Finding your ideal meditation position can be harder than you’d think. We’ve all seen images of loincloth-clad yogis sitting in Lotus Pose—often touted as the “perfect” meditation position. Truth is, not everyone’s hips are capable of the external rotation required to do Lotus. And even if you have hips that can do Lotus easily, it can be hard on your knees. The good news is that there are alternatives to Lotus. These days, we recognize the need to vary our posture depending on each person’s needs. It’s important to explore your options. Sitting meditation isn’t easy, and it’s even harder...
