The bheka BREEZE Zafu can be used on any chair you will sit on for long periods of time to alleviate back strain caused by static inflexible positions.
The bheka BREEZE round pleated sit cushion is traditional and contemporary all at once. The cover is the same design we’ve been making for decades but the insert is an inflatable cushion designed to give firm lightweight support to the traveling meditator.
The BREEZE Zafu is slightly rounded at the top and if you move on it moves with you like a ball chair. While you can sit in meditation poses with it on a chair as shown above, you can also use it as a cushion for your chair at work or at the dinner table or anywhere else.. When you use the BREEZE Zafu as a chair cushion you will have an active core and spinal and hip flexion all day long. This helps to alleviate back pain caused by a weak core and holding one position for too long during the day. Flexible support is the way to go for lower back health and the BREEZE Zafu is a great tool to achieve it.

For traveling teachers carrying a dozen of these to your next class is, dare I say it? A BREEZE!
