An Introduction to kindseat
This short video describes the characteristics of the Kindseat and its benefits. Demonstrating the unique fully adjustable meditation stool and seat.
Completely different postures
On retreat or when you need a change or want to try a different position to help keep your meditation fresh it’s easy to set the Kindseat to a completely different height: It can be used as a meditation bench or stool (for kneeling postures) or as a low seat for sitting cross-legged.
It can also be used as a standard low stool (with a flat seat) for listening to talks. Height range from 75mm to 270mm (3 to 10.7 inches).
In small amounts: Either as a seat or as a bench it can easily be adjusted in tiny amounts to suit your body shape and size.
Experienced meditators write that just half an inch can make all the difference to your posture and long-term comfort. No more fiddling around with finding just the right cushion (which then collapses anyway).

Always at the right angle for you
The variable tilt self-adjusts to follow the tilt of your pelvis, to help ensure that you are always at the right angle for you.
Sometimes, all your back needs if you have been sitting for a while is a subtle shift of your pelvic tilt. This design of meditation bench facilitates this. It doesn’t tilt backwards so it’s safe.
Adjusts to stand firm
Adjusts to stand firm on uneven surfaces so your seat won’t rock or wobble. The independent legs automatically follow the surface they are on. This means that the bench is stable even on thick mats. (To get the full range of tilt the legs need to be vertical). If needed, the legs can even be set at different heights so you can sit upright even if the ground under you isn’t level.
