Handmade Foldable Wooden Meditation Bench

This handmade wooden meditation bench is suitable for all shapes and sizes of people and is foldable, making it easy to transport and store. Many with knee and back problems find meditating in the lotus or half lotus positions impossible, but this bench allows for proper and effortless back alignment during meditation.  While regular chairs can be used in meditation, they often feel less grounding and are difficult to sustain proper alignment in.
