Here is our top 5 highest rated and appreciated meditation cushions
Peace Yoga Zafu Meditation Yoga Buckwheat Filled
With four colors available Blue, Burgundy, Green and Purple there is always one you like
There are two sizes
13 x 13 x 4.3
16 x 16 x 4.5
The cushion filling are buckwheat hulls that are all sealed in their own pouch so you can take them in and out easy.
The cover or the cushion can be taken of by using the zipper and can be machine washed.
I have not been able to find any bad comments about this Zafu for meditation. Lot of people like that durability and the fact that it does nor flatten like some others do. This keeps you hips always above your knees like they should.

Buckwheat Hull or Organic Cotton Filled Yoga Meditation Cushion
This organic filled (with a choice of buckwheat or cotton) meditation cushion comes in variety of sizes and colors.
- Mini cushion 3 inch high and 16 inch wide
- Round cushion 6 inch high and 12 inch wide
- Crescent cushion 5 inch high and 17 inch wide
- Zafu cushion 5.5 inch high and 15 inch wide
With all these sizes available it is pretty easy to find one that fits your size an posture.
Price vary on size and model but are very moderate in my opinion.
The inner bag can be opened with a zipper to add or remove buckwheat hulls. Th inner and outer lining is all made from organic materials.
I read that the cotton is getting harder over time and that the buckwheat is better in shaping to your body and does not alter in shape to much.

Zafu Yoga Meditation Pillow with USA Buckwheat Hull Fill
This Zafu is filled with what they call Eco-friendly USA buckwheat and the size is 14 inch in diameter and 6 inch tall.
Available in Orange, Black, Burgundy, Twilight, Plum and Grass color.
The cover is removable so you can wash this Zafu. The filling is loose in the cover so be careful opening it. Some people made a cover for it so they can wash that instead of taking all the buckwheat out.
One person used this pillow for over 3 year almost daily and was still very happy with it. This cushion fit people with all kind of heights and weight to my surprise.

Zafu Yoga Meditation Cushion Cotton – Hemp – Buckwheat
Lot of choices available for this Yoga Zafu.
2 sizes and 26 colors
- Standard 14 inch round
- Large 18 inch oval
- Total of 26 colors
The cotton and hemp are Eco-friendly and the Buckwheat is organic from the US.
The filling is not in a separate bag and this makes it a little messy to remove or add more filling to the Zafu or wash the cover.
The price varies depending on the size and filling you choose. Not all fillings and sizes can be combined. Some only have buckwheat or hemp.
Overall this Zafu received nice recommendations although there were complaints about the buckwheat leaking out of the top.
Our Rating: 4.4

Video I found on how to choose the best meditation cushion
When you read all the comments on a variety of websites about meditation cushions you find a lot of ratings that are not base on the quality of a yoga cushion but on personal preferences. for example is someone purchased a certain cushion and does not like the size than this has nothing to do with the overall quality.
Here is a video I found that might help you find the best meditation cushion the first time you order it or find the perfect replacement yoga Zafu for you.
It is easy to find the best meditation cushion if you read the reviews. You can try to find a store but there are not many around. I prefer to buy a meditation cushion online instead of finding a store. The choice is enormous and prices are ranging from cheap to as much as you would like to spend.
