Each Maya Lumbini Zafu is handcrafted following a respected ancestral tradition of meditation cushion craftsmanship. This practice inspires every aspect of our meditation cushions, from their 100% natural Kapok filling to their thoughtful and beautiful design.
More supportive than cotton Zafus
Maya Lumbini luxury meditation Zafus are designed to keep your spine aligned and support your body in the position most ideal for deep relaxation, while preventing back and knee pain and injuries. Plus they never flatten, so you can rely on their supportive properties through each and every meditation session.
More comfortable than buckwheat Zafus
Our firm—yet deliciously soft—premium Maya Kapok filling holds its shape, yet it’s soft enough to gently cradle your curves and ease pressure points. You benefit from both a healthy posture and a supremely comfortable seat. Your joints are properly cushioned, leading to more comfortable meditation.
Customized for You
Our Meditation Cushions are thoughtfully designed in multiple tailored sizes to create a perfect fit for your unique body shape and meditation needs. No generic sizing here! You choose what’s best for you and your body!
The Maya Kapok filling features a naturally waxy coating that makes the fiber slippery, allowing it to move easily to contour and cradle your body. That's why at Maya Lumbini, we’re proud to say, “It’s a custom-fit… every time you sit!”
At Maya Lumbini, we looked to the past to create meditation cushions that offer the most comfortable, the most relaxing meditation experience you’ll find today.
In fact, our name hails from Maya, the mother of Buddha, whose teachings ultimately formed the foundation of mindfulness meditation, long before its universal benefits were brought to the mainstream of medicine and society.
You Meditate Easier, Longer and Deeper When You Free Your Mind from Bodily Distractions Caused by Ordinary Cushions
The first key to a fulfilling, relaxing meditation practice is comfort. Makes sense, right? Because if you’re not comfortable, your mind gets easily distracted and your body becomes tense. Key #2 is a healthy, safe posture. That’s because an unhealthy posture “locks” your consciousness into external body sensations, preventing you from detaching from the physical and achieving deeper meditation. Even more importantly, poor posture often results in back and knee injuries. That’s because sitting with a bent spine and knees not below hips cause reverse spinal curvature that often contributes to painful back and knee-articulation injuries.
Instead, imagine meditating while being cradled by a soft while very supportive cloud. That’s the magic behind the Maya Lumbini meditation experience… and behind an almost-magical material that has the property of being so soft while being so supportive at the same time!
Don’t worry anymore about discomfort or your cushion becoming flat. When using our properly sized cushions with their firm, plush, never-flat filling, you can focus on what matters… sitting comfortably, breathing and enjoying deeper meditation. Our exclusive high-density Maya Kapok filling makes (and keeps!) our cushions firmer, encouraging spinal alignment and avoiding pain and injuries in your back, hips and knees, while offering you maximum cushiony comfort. Result? 2-in-1 comfort and an aligned spine for a more comfortable, injuries-free and, ultimately, a more relaxing meditation!BROWSE THE BODHI COLLECTION NOW
Isn’t this tree fascinating?! It’s the Ceiba Pentandra...also called the Silk Cotton Tree. Each long, hanging seed pod is filled to the max with fluffy, dense, silky-soft fibers that are naturally hypoallergenic. We select only the highest-density Kapok to produce our simple yet luxurious meditation cushions and benches. And we do it in a way that’s kind to both the environment and the farmers.
Our farmers love their magical Kapok trees! And they lovingly extract their specially grown Kapok according to our rigorous standards for density and overall quality. From there it’s sent to our Fair Trade-certified factory in India in big, luxurious, batches of all-natural goodness.
As soon as the beautiful Kapok arrives, we clean it twice and employ the ancient practice of letting it bask in the sun until it resembles sweet, fluffy mini clouds. Then, it’s ready to be transformed into your ultimate meditation experience.
A single bacteria cell can transform into 8 million cells in under 24 hours! Not in our cushions! Unlike buckwheat, Kapok has a tiny layer of wax making the fiber water-resistant, so it’s 100% hypoallergenic. And—unlike ordinary cushions—it’s not affected by conditions in which allergens are likely to grow and spread, like heat and humidity. It’s truly the world’s best meditation cushion filling. (And you’ll agree the first time you use it.)BROWSE THE BODHI COLLECTION NOW
