Why is an upright sitting posture important in meditation anyway?
Meditation practices and techniques exist in a wide variety of traditions, and many have been handed down from very ancient times. The upright sitting posture, i.e. a sitting position with the spine erect, is a feature that runs like a thread through the history of meditation. With the exception of special forms of meditation such as walking meditation or dynamic meditations in movement, most meditations have this basic posture in common as their preferred position
Many yogis explain this with energetic aspects (more precisely with the fact that energies are moved through the nadis and through the chakras), others justify the favoured position more with physiological advantages. Most meditators can quickly confirm from their own experience that an upright sitting posture is also most conducive to inner peace and concentration, whereas, for example, it is difficult to turn one's gaze inwards in a standing posture and it is all too easy to fall asleep in a lying position.
Because most people today have developed problematic posture patterns (for example, through lack of exercise and especially through daily screen work, which often involves a forward-leaning posture), however, many find it difficult to sit upright for any length of time. What is initially strenuous is made easier by a meditation cushion. Meditation cushions support the upright sitting posture, which has been proven time and again to be the most favourable position for meditators.
By the way, such a position is also highly recommended for pranayama exercises. Likewise, it is naturally suitable for mantra chanting, because in a curved sitting posture, the breath cannot flow freely, while a seat with an erect spine, which only has its natural lordosis but is otherwise not rounded, promotes full-bodied chanting.

Why do you need a meditation cushion?
A meditation cushion is not compulsory, but once you've tried it, you won't want to do without: Not only is it a comfortable surface, it also offers you numerous health benefits during your meditation, including a healthy back posture, relief for the joints, improved blood circulation in the feet and legs, and easier breathing.
What forms of meditation cushion are there?
Meditation cushions come in a variety of shapes to best support any sitting position. With small, round cushions you benefit from optimal legroom, flat cushions are best suited for the lotus position and half-moon cushions allow for a comfortable cross-legged position. There are also extra-large cushions that offer extra comfort.
Are there other practices besides meditation that you can use a meditation cushion for?
A meditation cushion can be used not only for any form of meditation practice, but also for pranayama sessions, for mantra practice and for chanting - any time you want to sit upright comfortably for a period of time!
