In the series we will go through a variety of mostly budget friendly equipment that you can use to set up a home gym, or even options to keep in your office. ⁠

The meditation cushion may seem like an odd addition to exercise equipment, but it’s a great tool for mind body exercise. It helps you settle into the proper alignment for mediation with your hips above your knees. It can also offer support for your back, hips, forehead or elbows for various positions and stretches. It can also be used as a way to add some instability, without being quite as difficult as something like the BOSU. These come in a few different varieties including the crescent cushion shown here, as well as a round cushion, floor mat or rectangular bolster. They retail for anywhere from $20 – $50 and are a great addition for mind-body practice in particular.
