We've found a reliable source for our handcrafted Poplar Seiza Benches in local master woodworker Peter Moffa, who also makes our Handcrafted Travel Altars. With his years of skill and expertise, these benches are more finely crafted than ever, with an eco-friendly Rubio Monocoat finish and branded with on the leg with the Mountains and Rivers Order chop.
Please note there is a natural and, to our eyes, beautiful variation and oxidation to poplar, so the wood grain on the benches will vary. Allow us to choose a bench for you at random. Otherwise, please contact the store if you have a preference and we will accommodate you as we can.
Seiza is a great meditation posture for those with less hip flexibility who have trouble sitting cross-legged. The bench also keeps pressure off your feet and ankles.
Standard Folding Seiza Bench Dimensions: 18'' L x 7 ¼ '' W x 6 ¾”-8 ¼" H
