How do inflatable meditation cushions compare to regular buckwheat-filled meditation pillows?Are they better? How and why…
Option #1: Inflatable Zafu Cushion
The Bheka Breeze Inflatable Zafu appears to be a regular meditation cushion. However, the center actually fills with air for easy transportation and travel. Plus, it weighs less than 1 pound and takes less than 2 minutes to inflate (or deflate).
Lightweight, portable cushions make it super convenient to meditate anywhere and anytime – even if you are not a traveler. This is something that a buckwheat pillow can’t so easily do.
Like regular meditation pillows, the Zafu provides great support for your back. In addition, you can adjust the firmness for maximum comfort. Simply adjust the inflation level to match what’s most comfortable to you.
Inflatable Zafu Specs:
- Dimensions: 14″ diameter x 8″ tall when fully inflated (or 16″ diameter x 6″ tall when partially inflated)
- Outer Material: 100% Cotton Twill
- Weight Capacity: 300 lbs
- Weight: 1 lb

Option #2: Mobile Meditator
Instead of buying the Inflatable Zafu Pillow, you could get the Mobile Meditator.
This meditation cushion is inflatable as well. However, it has a unique crescent shape vs the circular design of the Zafu.
The video below explains the key benefits of the Mobile Meditator and how to use it:
Whether you meditate or not, you can find lots of uses for this inflatable pillow. In fact, the cushioned, ergonomic design makes it an ideal seat cushion for hard benches and chairs.
As the above video states, you can customize the shape and feel of the pillow due to the 3 separate air compartments. Traditional seat cushions can’t do this, which may be why many people prefer the Mobile Meditator for their daily meditation seat (even if they don’t travel!)
In fact, this simple portable cushion allows users to get optimal spine support and pelvic tilt no matter what they are doing. You can also adjust the side air chambers for additional thigh and hip support.
In addition, this compact, lightweight and portable cushion also comes in handy as a sleeping pillow on airplanes. I know many people who travel with airplane pillows, and they definitely are bigger and bulkier.
