Description

This bench is made for sitting in comfort. It happens to be beautiful and full of hand rubbed goodness and the cushion and fabric will probably outlive you, sorry. But the the main focus of every detail is to make your meditation more comfortable, your posture more erect and balanced, your sitting more grounded, solid, and still for the longest time possible. We're meditators and we use the bench ourselves. It's constantly being refined by little tweaks hear and there.

We enjoy doing customs too.

All of our benches have our unique “dual height” legs. This is not a symmetrical arc as is found on other benches. It is designed to work well in both the lower or higher sitting positions. This is the only meditation bench we have ever seen with two sitting heights! And they work. We've been making and refining this design since 2001. Turiya makes every bench from start to finish.

The padded seat is an extra large 18 x 9 inches. The wider surface gives extra comfort and allows you to finely adjust the way the bench feels by sitting either forward, rearward, or directly in the center of the seat.

We use a unique multi-density pad system that offers the greatest possible comfort. It's soft on top but firmer below so it conforms to you, but you'll never feel contact with the hard wood underneath. This is a unique hidden feature, but you'll feel the difference when sitting for sure. I use this bench myself for long meditations and I've refined it many times over the years. This bench is designed for long meditations. Heavy-duty foams cost us more, but we use them because they feel better and last longer than anything else. We round and smooth all the edges of the wood under the padding where no one will ever see it, because this makes the pad last longer and makes the bench more comfortable. We have had this design in busy yoga and meditation retreats for over ten years of hard daily use and the pad does not wear out and the fabric is in good shape too.

Meditation Bench Sizing
The surface you meditate on will affect the way your bench fits you. Kneeling on softer surfaces (zabutons for example) will cause your bench to sink into them. In this case you may want a taller bench to make sure your feet have enough room. If you get a bench that seems too tall, use a blanket or pad beneath you and you might find it’s even more comfortable than having a shorter bench with less padding for your legs. It is easy to make a bench that seems too tall fit you. If the bench is too low, you may have to return or exchange it.

**Try the Bench Sizing Test:**
To simulate the sitting height of our benches you can sit on a stack of smaller sized books with your legs on either side of them in the kneeling position. Make the stack the same height as listed below for the bench size you are considering.
-7 3/4 inches to simulate the Large
-7 1/4 inches to simulate the Medium
-7 inches to simulate the Small
These heights simulate the sitting height of our bench when used in its lower position. When using the higher side of our bench you’ll sit about 1/2 inch higher.

Every body is unique. Use these size recommendations as a rough guide. People with longer legs often prefer a taller bench. Those with shorter legs often do best with a smaller one. But this strongly depends on how flexible you are, and what parts of your body are more or less flexible.
