Our oversize shell filled with our buckwheat hulls and equipped with two adjustable straps gives you the most height of any cushion we’ve seen. If you have a larger frame, are less flexible, or just like to alternate between cross-legged and kneeling positions while keeping the height of your seat, you will love the SeiFu.
13” diameter x 8-13” adjustable height.
Please choose Black, Charcoal, Chocolate, Navy, Burgundy, Cinnamon, Sage or Saffron.

I was excited to receive my new cushion but the day it came and I opened the box it was not cotton stuffed as I had assumed but rather something like buckwheat hulls. I had sat on buckwheat hull cushions before and found them hard and unyeilding. However, I thought I'd try it, at least, before sending it back in dissapointment. As I sat down on it, it put my body in exactly the proper position like magic. I sat for an hour and was amazed! It was so comfortable I couldn't believe it! I am totally in love with this cushion. Wild horses couldn't drag it from me!
I would like to hope that Bodhidarma had this cushion in the cave. It feels like I could spend the next nine years sitting when I use this cushion. Amazing feel and an absolute must have for those of us who are getting old, sit seiza, and don't have the most flexible hips.
The Seifu is not only incredibly comfortable, it also offers the possibility of changing positions from seiza to Burmese or cross-legged posture in one product. It is well made and without a doubt great product.
Great zafu that is also adjustable; this was mandatory since my knee replacement! It's very comfortable and not a challenge to transport either. Good buy!
Perfect for someone who doesn't always want to sit in the same position. I exercise a lot, and I don't always know for sure how my hips are going to react when I sit. This zafu seems to know!
For many years, I have had my sitting practice hampered by a loss of circulation in one leg due to a knee injury. The higher seat options of the adjustable seifu relieve a great deal of the torque and pressure on my knees; it makes sitting for extended periods much more comfortable! I use it with the Mountain Seat Zabuton, and I have found that combination to be ideal.
I have knee and ankle injuries that cause me trouble frequently when I sit for long periods to meditate. I just got this seat and gave it a short test run. While I haven't tested it for a long period yet, so far I can tell it is a very good option for sitting comfortably while protecting my war torn joints.
