The Mobile Meditator Inflatable Meditation Cushion
An inflatable meditation cushion is a great item to have if you are traveling or attending a retreat. The Mobile Meditator inflatable meditation cushion, when deflated, is small enough to put in your carry on luggage or backpack. Once inflated, the inflatable meditation cushion is as comfortable as any cotton or kapok filled meditation cushion. The cushion has three separate inflation chambers, so it can be inflated to the desired firmness and adjusted for the best comfort possible.
Most people find the inflatable meditation cushion to be stable enough to use every day. The Mobile Meditator has a bullt-in slope shape and the side extensions offer support to the thighs. The front, center of the cushion in indented to accommodate the feet being pulled in for the cross-legged or Lotus posture. The slope of the inflatable meditation cushion helps one to achieve a natural upright posture for long, comfortable meditations.
The cushion is strong enough to last for many years provided it does not get punctured. It does have a weight limitation of 200 pounds and one should not drop down on it when sitting down. Using the inflatable meditation cushion in a gentle, Zen like fashion will ensure its longevity and prevent any rupture of the seams or inflation nipples.
By comparison, the Mobile Meditator Inflatable Meditation Cushion is superior in many ways to a simple inflatable Zafu. The simple round shape of an inflatable zafu is too much like sitting on a beach ball. Many customers note that an inflatable Zafu is too unstable for meditation. When they try the Mobile Meditator, they are much happier with the results.
The Mobile Meditator is available in several colors and is easily inflated with the optional inflation pump. In most cases the inflatable meditation cushion can be filled by blowing air into the cushion, but the pump will make quick work of it. However, some final puffs of air from the mouth will firm up the cushion and make it more comfortable.
When looking for an inflatable meditation cushion, it is important to examine all the features. Separate chambers allow for more flexibility, a felted surface makes the cushion less slipper, a built-in slope helps maintain a good upright posture, and durable construction helps make the cushion hold up to long-term use. The Mobile Meditator Inflatable Cushion has all these features and even comes with a carry pouch so it is fully stowed away for travel.
