What is a Meditation bench?

What is a Meditation bench? A Meditation bench is a little, usually wooden, stool that will help you sit in a good angle during Meditation.

A lot of people experience numbness or a tingling feeling in the legs while sitting in a cross-legged position. A bench will prevent this as you will get into a kneeling position and rest on your ankles.

This way you will be able to hold your sitting position for much longer and you will not get distracted because of body discomfort.

Why should I use one?

A Meditation bench is perfect for people who are not able to sit (comfortably) in the cross-legged position. You can train yourself to be able to do it in the future but a bench might be a very comfortable choice when your starting out.

If you are able to sit cross-legged but you want to sit up higher a Meditation cushion may be a better choice for you.

Both will help you get into the right angle. But, wheter you want a bench or a cushion is up to you. Compare the benefits foe yourself here. Meditation cushions.
