A meditation chair intended for the lotus or half lotus position - elevated about 4.5" inches from the floor if you have reduced blood flow to your legs sitting directly on the floor. It is quite heavy (11 pounds), so intended for home use. You may want to add a cushion for extended meditations. Sturdy and durable, it is made from a salvaged chair bottom made in Romania. The legs are salvaged from a PEI cattle barn.
