This is undoubtedly the best meditation seat we have ever tried.
Many people would like to have a good meditation posture but can’t use the traditional postures such as cross-legged or kneeling. This may be due to becoming less flexible with age or some form of illness. The Kindseat Hi has been designed for meditation and offers the features of the original Kindseat but at chair height.
It looks good, it’s very light and portable, and it even comes to pieces so that it’ll easily fit in a suitcase or backpack. But the really great thing about it is the ease with which you can set it up to provide you with the support and comfort your body needs.
The main problem with most benches is that they have a fixed height, but the Kindseat’s unique design allows you to adjust the height in tiny increments.
It’s easy to adjust the lengths of the straps that support the seat in order to change the height. A convenient scale on the seat itself allows you to set the seat to the best height for you. Even if you take the stool to pieces for traveling, you can snap it back together again in seconds, and the seat will be at the same height as the last time you used it.
The Kindseat automatically adjusts to the right angle for you. The seat tilts naturally to match the conformation of your body as you sit. If you shift your weight or change the distance between your knees (two things that change the angle of your pelvis), the Kindseat’s angle changes with you. It ‘s designed so that it can’t tilt backwards.
Despite its flexibility, the Kindseat offers you stable support. Unlike a cushion, it won’t compress and sink as you sit on it. It gives support that’s solid and yet comfortable. The Kindseat’s straps are made from the same safe and strong material that climbers use when they’re dangling from cliff faces.
There’s an optional “Kindkushion” for the Kindseat, which is a marvel in itself. The problem with putting a cushion on the sloping wooden seat is that it slides off the front. Not with the Kindkushion! The cushion, which is thin and yet comfortable, has a bottom made from a specially designed material that grips the wood and prevents sliding.
There’s also an optional carry case for the Kindseat. It’s custom designed for the Kindseat, and will hold the Kindseat, its legs, and the cushion.
