SNUG - RETREAT MEDITATION CUSHION

Who would have thought that just sitting there could be so damn hard!?

Sitting uncomfortably is one of the biggest obstacles to meditation. You love your practice but pretty soon you feel body aching, back pain, joint pain, thighs pain, leg-numbness or lateral instability? Uncomfortable sitting first leads to mental stress and finally - ends your practice in frustration!?

Key features of the ergo-comfy meditation seat

Tailbone & lower back support reinforce the correct pelvic angle and provide excellent all-around stability. The correct pelvic angle - neutral to slightly anterior pelvic tilt "rolled forward“ brings the spine in a natural upright balance.

The complete body ground support distributes the weight evenly and protects against painful pressure points. Smooth and complete support of the thighs.

Shape elements of a horse saddle style [crotch & back] and a sports-car-seat style [molded-in] provide support and comfort.

The individually adjusted seat height depends on the individual body dimensions and training level. If it's not correct, you fall into a bent sitting position.

  • Main Cushion

    The main cushion is the foundation of the meditation seat. It offers body-appropriate, even support for the entire seat and the legrest.

    Legs and knees are not partially suspended in the air, as with conventional meditation cushions.

  • Back Support Cushion

    The back support cushion rolls the pelvis forward and supports the tailbone. The lower back is relieved and the weight is shifted to the ischial tuberosity.

    As a separate cushion, it can be moved forwards or backwards depending on the shape of the body.

    Thanks to the seat surface, it always remains in the desired position without slipping away.

  • Central Seat Chamber

    The central seat chamber in the main cushion ensures a stable seat height with a "butt-friendly" shape.

  • Leg Extensions

    The leg extensions distribute the weight evenly and protect against painful pressure points. Thighs are supported throughout.

    Beginners with less flexibility in the hips can place the thighs higher.

Sit snug-fit & dive deeper

Curiously enough, many traditional meditation cushions make you feel like sitting on top of a pot, instead of sitting in a bucket-like seat with tailbone support.

Sit snug-fit and take your meditation to the next level.

  • Stacked Burmese Posture

    This posture is our favorite. It is the Burmese posture, only with one leg on top of the other. It takes some flexibility in the hips and knees, but with a little stretching, this state can be quickly achieved for many meditators with average body flexibility. It offers a stable and well-grounded sitting position and a healthy, upright posture.

  • Burmese Posture

    The Burmese Posture is simple, very good, and therefore probably the most popular meditation posture. In this position, you place one heel centrally against your body and the other leg in front of it. Touching the cushion or floor with your knees is good for the stability. For beginners, we recommend well-filled Snug leg extensions so that the knees can stand a little higher but still being grounded on the cushion. As flexibility improves, you can gradually reduce the filling and the knees slowly come lower to the floor..

  • Half Lotus Posture

    In the half lotus posture, one foot is placed across the thigh and the other foot is placed on the floor. We recommend to switch the sides from session to session. This way the flexibility is trained in a balanced way for both sides. You can also try the quarter lotus posture first, in which the left foot rests on the calf of the right leg - or vice versa.

  • Full Lotus Posture

    The full lotus posture is known to be the most demanding meditation posture. It is stable, compact, symmetrically balanced and well grounded. This posture is only suitable for people who are very flexible. In the full lotus posture, both feet rest crossed on both thighs. The soles of the feet point upwards. Please always take special care of your joints. Excessive ambition is not worth it here.

  • Neutral to slightly Anterior Pelvic Tilt

    Ideally, the seat surface is completely straight or inclined slightly forward. It is called an anterior pelvic tilt when the front of the pelvis is balanced evenly or slightly sloping in relation to the back. The pelvis is now in a neutral position or slightly "rolled forward".

  • The Posterior Pelvic Tilt

    Many meditators sit with their pelvis in a position called a posterior pelvic tilt. The front of the basin is slightly raised and the back drops off a little. The pelvis is now "rolled backwards". This leads to a multitude of posture errors.

  • A missing seat contour leads to a bad stooped posture

    Traditional meditation cushions don't offer an ergonomic seat contour. Usually the pelvis tilts backwards or too far forwards. The spine loses its natural alignment, falls into a limp and leaned forward sitting posture.

  • Sitting ergonomically means sitting healthily.

    Only if you sit upright, stable and largely pain-free, distractions may withdraw relatively quickly, creating states of mindfulness. Good pelvic and lumbar support leads to a healthy and relaxed posture.
