How much meditation furniture do you have in your yoga studio or meditation room?
Do you have:
- A meditation chair?
- Meditation shrine or alter?
- Meditation met / yoga mat?
- Meditation room divider?
- How about a cozy little tea table and cushions for when you want a break?
If you only have a couple pieces of meditation furniture—or worse, none at all—you’re totally missing out.
Meditation furniture looks beautiful, helps you meditate properly, and is full of positive energy. All of which is essential when you design your meditation room.
Thousands of THE DAILY MEDITATION’s readers have been loving our guide to home meditation retreats. But to get the most out of home meditation, furniture is essential. I mean, who doesn’t love to meditate while sitting on a Zen cushion next to a meditation shrine in front of a Buddha statue in their own yoga studio?
But what is the best meditation furniture to buy?
There are 5 piece of meditation furniture that no yoga studio or meditation room should be without. Let’s take a look.
The 5 Best Pieces of Meditation Furniture For Yoga Studios And Zen Rooms
1. Every yoga studio needs a meditation chair AND A Yoga Chair
If you’re going to be doing yoga at home one good item to have is a good yoga chair.
Then again, sometimes you’ll be doing actual yoga in your yoga studio, right? But at other times you will probably want to just sit down and appreciate the beauty of your yoga studio. And you may also want to meditate. That’s why one of the first meditation furniture items you get should be a meditation chair.
Meditation chairs are an ergonomic furniture item, so yogis can sit comfortably with perfect posture when they meditate. And the higher quality ones are simply beautiful furniture that will make your home yoga studio look stunning.
This is one piece of meditation furniture you want to get right, because it will affect how you sit and how you meditate. That’s why I’ve written a guide to picking the best meditation chair for you.
2. How about an antique meditation Shrine / meditation altar?
When it comes top picking meditation furniture with positive energy, you should definitely consider a shrine or altar especially if you’re spiritual.
I personally love sitting at my meditation shrine table to meditate on deities. And if you’ve got a beautiful Buddha statue, or a statue of your deity, then this is the best place to make their home.
You’ve got plenty of choices with meditation shrines. DIY versions are possible (I like Gaia’s article on this). Then there are antique meditation shrines. But for most people, a beautiful modern high-quality meditation shrine is a great choice.
Make sure your home meditation shrine is wooden or another material with positive energy. And be sure to consider a meditation-shrine-cabinet, which can be ideal way to house your other items too.
One of the best choices is DharmaObjects meditation shrine [Get it on AMAZON]
3: Obviously your meditation furniture set needs a meditation mat / yoga mat
Pardon me for the total non-brainer. But surely your yoga studio will need a yoga mat / meditation mat. And it’s amazing just how much variety there is in yoga and meditation mats. You’ve got your regular Walmart-style two for $20 yoga mat—old faithful, which’ll get the job done.
If you want a meditation mat that’s more beautiful, they range up to $100—though in fairness, some of them have some beautiful artwork that makes the price-tag more digestible.
What matter with your meditation mat is that it a) is comfortable, b) is durable, and c) it has artwork (or a color) that creates positive energy and goes with your yoga studio design.
One manufacturer with some pretty cool yoga mat designs is Soul Obsession. You can see their designs in the image below and check them out on Amazon.
4. A comfy little Zen tea table with cushions
Sometimes you don’t want to do yoga or meditate in your yoga studio. Sometimes you really just want to sit down with a friend and share some green tea while discussing the latest article that you read here on THE DAILY MEDITATION.
For that you’re definitely going to want a cozy little tea table with some cushions, designed in a cool Zen-way.
That’s why the next piece of meditation furniture you need is tea table and cushions.
Many of these sets come with their own cushions. Or you could take a look at our picks of the best meditation cushions.
5. A meditation room divider
Once you’ve got your meditation room set and ready to go, you’re going to want to protect the positive energy in the space while keeping negative energy out. One piece of meditation furniture that will help you do that is a meditation room divider.
Meditation room dividers are all over the place these days. Everybody has one. Probably because they look just… well… beautiful! I mean just look at this Buddhist room divider, which is available on Amazon.
With a beautiful meditation room divider, you’re getting two things: you’re getting a stunning piece of art, and you’re getting a… er… room divider—but that’s great because it will keep negative energy out and positive energy in.
