Not all meditation techniques are the same, and thus, the needs change from person to person. Just because one person loves and recommends a specific item does not mean that will be the case for your lifestyle. To combat this, here are some tips for when you are ready to embark on your journey.
Consider whether you need solid back support or could go without. Ultimately, the goal is for you to have this item support you through your meditation journey—and not be a deterrent for distraction. You should also keep in mind the level of cushioning you’d prefer, the size of the seat, whether or not the chair can be folded and easily stored, its portability, and its aesthetic.
Another important thing to consider is your preferred sitting position as you meditate. Perhaps you’re a cross-legged girlie—there are low-to-the-ground meditation chairs designed to help you feel grounded. Or maybe you’re looking for something more ergonomic—there are two-tiered chairs designed to accommodate those who prefer to be in a kneeling position. Whatever your preference is, the style of your chair will make all the difference as you adjust to your go-to position.
