"I have had back surgery and back problems for years and have never been able to sit for any length of time in order to meditate. My meditation was limited to standing or walking. I decided to give the Pi bench a try and found, to my delight, that I am able to sit on it for up to an hour without back discomfort. I haven't tried longer sitting yet but I suspect it will still "work" for me. It helps keep my lower back in excellent alignment and is also easy on my knees. Thanks for making such a great bench available. — Megan L."
We are delighted to introduce the Pi Bench for meditation in the traditional kneeling, or seiza posture. This posture is a good alternative for those who have difficulty meditating in the cross-legged position.
The Pi Bench, inspired by the mathematical symbol Pi, promotes correct spinal alignment while eliminating stress on the knees. Its innovative architecture locates the bench's legs beneath the center of the seat at the greatest weight bearing point. This unique design feature gives the Pi Bench enhanced stability and allows the sitter more options for positioning the legs they are not as "confined". The bench's rounded, contoured legs allow you to adjust the angle of the seat for your personal comfort.
