Luxe Velvet Zabuton Meditation Mat
'It’s my first time having a meditation mat and I couldn’t like it more. The softness of this makes me not want to get off it when I’m connecting to my breath. It’s been much needed throughout these years of my practice. I’m so happy to have this in my life.'

Two studies assessed the changes in grey matter in the brains of long and short term meditators, and the effects that had on overall mental health and wellbeing.
Results of this study showed that regular meditation practice increases grey matter in the brain, which lead to:
- Improved attention span
- Better learning, cognition, memory
- Better emotional regulation.
- Increased empathy and compassion.
- Decreased anxiety, fear and stress.
- Reduced stress levels.
Why do I need a Zabuton mat?
To sit comfortably for a prolonged period of time in a pose that encourages ideal posture without discomfort, we need to sit with our vertebrae stacked on top of each other with our pelvis slightly tilted forward. Our legs should be crossed with our knees resting on a soft ground at a lower level than our pelvis. Adding an matching Ajna Wellbeing cushion (or zafu) on top of the zaubton helps us achieve this posture.
Will these cushions help me sit with better posture?
All of our Zabuton mats have an outer cover and a 100% cotton inner cover that holds all the filling.
You can remove the outer cover for cleaning. Dry cleaning is highly recommended, gently hand washing and line drying, or on a gentle/delicate cycle in the washing machine with the cushion cover turned inside out.
Can I wash my Zabuton?
You can easily wash the outer cover of your bolster by removing it and washing in warm water. Hang to dry.
HOW TO USE
Although meditating on your zabuton is the most common use, you’ll also find that Ajna Wellbeing zabuton mats are great for yoga poses where you need a little extra padding, or simply as a stylish floor pillow for comfy and stylish lounging.
Add an matching Ajna Wellbeing cushion (or zafu) on top of the zaubton if you desire extra elevation of your hips.
