I loved my round meditation cushion and how it fit itself perfectly into the corner of my fitness room. I was devastated when my cat decided he loved it too and peed all over it. I had to toss it out (the cushion, not the cat). I looked around at other options, but ultimately knew I wanted the same one I'd already had. Now I love my meditation cushion again and keep the fitness room door closed at all times. :)
One of the seams on the sides broke just after using it 4 times. It broke when I lifted the cushion after my meditation session. It is a possibility that mine had a defect, but any repair on that cushion is no easy task. The buckwheats hulls that are in it are loose. So, get them out is about a 30 minutes job alone (and messy because it gets everywhere). It'll be nice that the buckwheats were in a little fabric bag in order to make any repairs or washing the cover a realistic task.
It a shame, it is a really confortable cushion and I love that they had the environment in mind for the conception. Actually, it was one of the reasons I bought it.
I'm so sorry to hear about your Meditation Cushion Carolane! Keep an eye on your email as a member of our team has reached out to you directly to find out more information.
I bought this cushion two weeks ago and use it all the time! For yoga, sitting in the living room watching tv, and for meditating! One of the best purchases I've made. Plus, the customer service provided by Halfmoon was exemplary. Right after I placed my order, I received a beautiful email from Cindy.
I will definitely be making future purchases with Halfmoon.
I have trouble meditating while sitting flat on the floor because it strains my lower back after a while, but this cushion fixes that problem. It lifts your hips and drops your knees the perfect amount to release lower back tension. It's on the firm side so you don't sink into it, but has just enough give to be comfortable too.
I love my round zafu. So when it is time to shop for a gift....it is a no-brainer: another round zafu I got.
