Why do I need a meditation bench?
Even if you already own a meditation cushion, we highly recommend one of these benches as a relief posture during long retreats. They’re also exceptionally handy for taking along to the office, beach or cottage.

Which size of meditation bench is right for me?

A pine bench is relatively lightweight. Our new Douglas Fir bench will feel more substantial and may be more suitable for individuals who meet the definition of a “person of size” or “large”. The extra height in a tall bench may help in this circumstance, as it may help provide more of a gap at the back of the knees.
All benches are standard width of 17.5″. Anyone who has trouble sitting cross-legged, but can still kneel on the floor should be able to use our benches comfortably.
