A bench is a great tool for people who prefer to kneel during meditation. Some people experience knee discomfort when they sit crosslegged in Sukhasana, but kneeling on a bench during meditation usually alleviates this problem.

If you have a tendency to get tired when you meditate, a Meditation Bench might be a good choice. In short, sitting on a bench can, for some people, increase your energy level.

Fair Value, Good Product

I have owned this exact bench for about 6 years, and it is still in excellent condition. I recommend it for a simple but sturdy option for a portable seiza bench. Pros: Good cushion; Constructed from a high-quality plywood that prevents warping and such; Easy to bring along for intensives. Cons: A bit of a learning curve on how to shift your weight on it.

I love my bench! Very supporting and when I have company over to my house everyone insists on trying it. I love that its handmade in the USA too! Awesome for my meditation practice. No more knee pain! Yay!

Great Bench

I bought this bench for my husband 5 months ago because of his tight hips and his need for something taller than a Zafu cushion. It has been fantastic—he loves it. He hasn't had any difficulty with the legs collapsing, so perhaps it's a matter of minimizing lateral motions. He doesn't appear to my eye to be particularly stationary in meditation or on the bench in general, so I think there is a reasonable amount of stability for small to medium meditator motions without leg collapse. As a bonus, dog fur can be vacuumed off the cushion quite well.

Purchased my bench a couple years ago, and this has proven to be a great asset to the practice. Able to sit without discomfort. It holds me well. The bag with strap is easy to take places.
