Any person who performs meditation or yoga should use a cushion that is suitable for its needs. This will make your practising much easier because the human body is neither totally flat or predictable curved. If you do not give your body the right support while practising, it will surrender to the shape of the surface on which it rests. This means, relying on your body on the floor without proper support can cause your head, spine, shoulders, legs and hips to misalign which can bring to the high level of discomfort. Here is where yoga props, including yoga cushions, come in help. They can boost the comfort level and your posture during the practice.
The common postures for meditation include Shavasana (the traditional lying), Seiza (kneeling), chair sitting, full lotus and half lotus (cross-legged) postures. Actually, you can use more different postures at a time. This means you can start with a full lotus but you can simply end with the Shavasana. The ankles, knees, and hips are those that gives your body the ability to meditate in sitting or kneeling posture what makes it very important to give your body the proper support. This way you can maintain comfort and proper body alignment during the time of your practice.
Yoga meditation cushions are traditional yoga props. This piece of equipment can be used to raise your hips and upper body so your legs can comfortably rest on the floor. Usually, yoga practitioners sit on the edge of the cushion. This gives them the chance to form the right pose with the thighs. This position will help you rolling the hip forward and draw the natural curve of the spinal column and your body. This means, when the spinal column is in the right position, the shoulders, back, neck and head assume a comfortable posture which is very important for successful meditation.
