Bluecony Ikuko Meditation Bench

The Bluecony Ikuko Meditation Bench is a masterfully crafted ergonomic kneeling seat that transforms your meditation practice by promoting a natural, balanced, and relaxed posture. This bench is designed to hold your spine in the perfect position, allowing you to release tension, relax back and shoulder muscles, and reduce stress effectively.

Back and Body Solution
The kneeling bench is specifically tailored for those who struggle with the standardized cross-legged position and for anyone desiring to relax their muscles. The proper alignment facilitated by the bench allows for a gratifying deep prana breathing, which can increase energy levels, improve circulation, and expand the shoulders. It’s an ideal solution for a more focused and less strenuous meditation experience.

Three Customizable Sizes
Understanding that one size does not fit all, the Bluecony Ikuko Meditation Bench comes in three distinct heights:

Low: For individuals under 5’4″, providing a comfortable fit that encourages proper posture without straining.
Standard: Perfect for people between 5’5″ and 6′, offering a balance of support and comfort.
High: Designed for those over 6′, ensuring that even taller practitioners can enjoy the benefits of the bench.
The curved and arched seat design provides optimal comfort and support, negating the need for additional cushions or pillows.

Posture Alignment
The bench’s unique design encourages an open sitting angle between the thigh and torso. This kneeling position, known as Seiza, allows the back to automatically straighten, so the spine balances properly over the pelvis, rediscovering its natural curve. This decreases damaging compressive loads on the low back and promotes deeper breathing and better circulation, leading to improved energy flow and general well-being.

Travel Version
The Original IKUKO bench’s travel version is designed with versatility and portability in mind. It can be easily dismantled by removing both legs, making it the perfect companion for yoga, prayer, all-day workshops, retreats, or as a stool or chair for various activities. The inclusion of a 100% organic cotton travel bag ensures that you can bring the comfort of the IKUKO bench with you wherever you go.

Locally Handmade
Each bench is designed and handmade with care from birch wood in Canada, a testament to the brand’s commitment to quality since 2008. The relaxing bench has become a trusted element in meditation spaces worldwide, serving as a wonderful alternative to traditional meditation cushions, zafus, zabutons, or chairs. The craftsmanship and attention to detail in each bench reflect the dedication to providing a product that not only enhances meditation practice but also supports various daily activities.

Versatile Use
The Bluecony Ikuko Meditation Bench is not limited to meditation alone. Its versatility extends to other areas of life, such as dining at low tables, working at a desk, reading, or playing with children. The bench’s design preserves freedom of movement and offers the benefits of an ergonomic chair, making it a multifunctional piece of furniture that fits seamlessly into any lifestyle.

Dimensions and Weight
With a depth of 20cm (7.8 in) and a width of 42cm (16.55 in), the bench is compact yet spacious enough to provide a stable and comfortable seating surface. It is available in three sizes—16 cm (6.30 in), 18 cm (7.9 in), and 20 cm (7.87 in)—to cater to different heights and body types. The bench’s light weight of 2kg (4.4 lbs) makes it easy to carry, especially with the included travel bag.

Personalization and Support
Bodies, measurements, and flexibility differ from person to person, which is why these sizes are references for the majority of users. If the bench you ordered is too small or too high, consider exchanging it or adding a cushion underneath to alleviate any pressure points on the knees and ankles. For personalized assistance in choosing the right size, the seller offers direct support to customers.

Best Practice Using the Bench
To ensure the longevity of the bench and the safety of the user, it is essential to use the bench on a flat surface and seat both legs on the floor evenly. Adjusting yourself by releasing pressure on the seat and using your hand is recommended, rather than sliding back and forth, which could result in damage to the legs or their attachments. The bench is made for seating in a kneeling position and is not intended for cross-legged seating.

The Major Benefits of Bluecony Ikuko Meditation Bench

Improves Posture: The bench’s design engages core muscles, trains, and strengthens them, reducing the tendency to slouch and enhancing the natural curve of the spine.

Increases Oxygen Levels and Ability to Focus: The upright sitting position frees the lungs and upper organs, allowing for deeper breathing and improved oxygen levels, which in turn enhances concentration and focus.
