Jason says, "I absolutely love this bench and can't overemphasize how important it has been to my practice. It allows one to assume Dragon Asana, or Zen-style meditation, fairly easily—and also facilitates the practice of pranayama and even more complex asanas and practices. I got one of these at the much-missed Bodhi Tree Bookstore in Los Angeles many years ago—it was one of the most worthwhile purchases of my life. One note: Mine doesn't have the cushioning that has apparently been added to this model, but I do tend to cushion mine with a blanket anyway."
If you prefer the simple elegance of a wooden bench, our Alder Hardwood Bench will certainly suit you. This sturdy bench is made from solid Alder hardwood and has no upholstery. The legs fold for convienient carrying or storage.
The alder is finished with a beautiful all-natural beeswax-based finish. Built with the same heavy duty hinges we use on our upholstered folding meditation bench.
