The Perfect Seat For Meditation.
Perfect for Kriya Yoga. Perfect for Hatha Yoga.
The TreeLight Yoga/Meditation Bench (patent pending) is as easy to sit in as a chair, but good for your back and good for advanced meditation positions. Every member of the family can use it!
Sit straight, meditate, grow to Lotus.
Easier yoga. Enhanced meditations.
Accelerate your asana practice.
Take a break: Meditate! Raise chi.
I sat comfortably and stably with the knowledge that I could easily change positions should recurrent pain from an old hip injury occur. The portability of the bench is clever, too.
About the Bench
The bench was designed for meditation. While using it, a yoga practice developed around it—one that can help you develop the strength and flexibility you need to sit well for extended periods. (Believe it or not, particular kinds of strength are needed, along with specific kinds of flexibility.)
The design of the bench was inspired by a futon! With one bad knee and limited flexibility, meditation was difficult on the floor, so I began meditating on the edge of my futon. I found it particularly comfortable at one corner, where the mattress had pulled away from the edge, making a very comfortable slot for my foot.
That was the initial inspiration for a bench that can be used with either leg (or both, or neither!). The rest is soon to be history!
The fine-furniture version depicted above is at home in any decor, and can be complemented with a choice of cushion colors. The legs fold, too, for easy transportation and storage.

What Users Say…
From a golfing buddy who doesn’t meditate, do Yoga, or sit on the floor:
A moment after the video ended, I asked him to sit with one leg on the ground, and be aware of the position of his back. I had noticed that he was in the perfect “J” pose, when he did that — and after he put one foot down, he agreed. It was fascinating to find that even someone inexperienced found their back in the perfect upright position when sitting with one leg up — much better than sitting with both legs up, or both legs down.
