Meditation Prop: Small Bench

After completing my yoga prop cabinet, my boyfriend set out to make me a meditation bench. How exciting!

This is really comfortable: it helps me keep my back straight while giving me support for the legs. Since I don’t sit with my legs crossed it is also easier on the knees, and it make it possible to sit for a long period of time. I have a really hard time staying cross-legged for more than a few minutes even when sitting on a pillow, so this is perfect.

I really like how the wood has different colors and how sturdy this is. It is also really fun because my boyfriend made it at the perfect height for my legs, which means that it is unique and adapted to my body and posture.

I really love working with this small bench! It makes practice feel even more special by creating a small ritual: I know that when I sit on this it is to be mindful and to give myself some time. Let us know what you think, and if you’d be interested in having one!
