Travel Zafu

(3 customer reviews)


SKU: N/A Category:


Our Travel Zafu is light (8 oz) and folds to fit in your jacket pocket. It is an inflatable, sturdy beach ball hiding inside a zafu shell. As with our other zafus, the shell is double-stitched for extra strength and comes with a carrying handle. It is machine washable.

As well as world travelers, there are those who like the Travel Zafu for daily sitting. If you’ve been used to sitting on kapok or buckwheat, the Travel Zafu may take some getting used to. Mark Robison, who works and sits half the year afloat on the Bering Sea, has some great tips on using this zafu.

Mark Robison with falcon My Travel Zafu goes with me whenever I travel.

It seems unlikely that even one serious about meditation will lug about a large stuffed Zafu. When traveling, camping or in my case even aboard fishing vessels in the rough waters of the Bering Sea, the inflatable zafu is a necessity for me. It’s lightness and compactness allows me to take it anywhere. I highly recommend it.

The key to using this Zafu is the proper inflation. With just a few puffs of air, it is ready to use. By not inflating it completely the zafu will form to your body. Air is actually quite hard and over inflation produces the effect of sitting on a ball. With proper inflation one can sit quite comfortably even on a rolling ship at sea. I encourage you to experiment with the inflation to find the optimum level for your sitting style.

    Was looking for a good cushion for meditation while on the road. This fits the bill well. The external cover is well made and it inflates very easily. Of course, it feels a little like sitting on a beach ball, however overall I’m pleasantly surprised with the comfort level and quality. Having only used it for a short period of time, I cannot speak to the durability of the inner inflatable ball.

    nothing quite like riding my bike down to the water and sitting on this pad for a few hours to read and meditate and soak in the splender of the day. The zafu cushion is well-made and the beach ball is a brilliant idea, as it lets me keep my zafu with me whenever i go out like this
