The lotus flower, a symbol for new beginnings and infinite potential, brings about transformation and renewal. Our Lotus zafu cushions are made from exceptionally soft 100% cotton twill fabric and filled with buckwheat hulls.
Zafus have been used for everyday sitting in Asia for centuries. Today the zafu is rediscovered by Westerners for meditation, yoga, and a simple home furnishing. It is perfect for sitting meditation and pranayama practice. Sitting in elevated "easy pose" (cross-legged) creates a pelvic tilt, bringing length and alignment to the spine. The hips and legs are able to relax, which allows lift and openness to the chest and lungs. It is also great for stretching the back, and converts almost any chair into a tilt seat for autonomous sitting.
