Traditional Bench

From: $129.00

SKU: N/A Category:


This bench is the classic design for a meditation bench. Like the Center Bench, it allows you to kneel in meditation for long periods with stability and comfort.

Each Still Sitting Bench is made on Vashon Island by a local craftsman. We use Red Oak, which has a warm color and lovely grain. Because of the handmade quality of these benches, while the specifications of each bench are exactly the same, the look of each is unique.

We make both a Regular and a Tall Bench. We recommend the Regular bench for people 5’ 7” or below. We recommend the Tall Bench for those 5’ 8” and above.

You may choose a Traditional Bench with or without a Bench Cushion. The Bench Cushion gives you a nicely cushioned seat, and may help prevent you from sliding forward on your bench.

  1. Great meditation bench. Perfect height. Bought the cushion but didn’t really need it.

  2. Beautifully made! Comfortable too!

  3. This bench is comfortable for old knees! I didn’t order the mat at first, but found my traditional zabuton too soft (the bench wobbled) and the floor too hard. With the folding zabuton, it’s perfect.

  4. So comfortable! I meditate twice a day but my joints are a little creaky, so this sturdy seiza bench allows me to sit two or three times longer than I could before. It’s attractive, too – simple, beautifully made and finished. Worth every penny.
