There are countless articles and books about how we respond to color. There is a lot of money spent on what will be the trendy colors for the year or for the diffierent seasons – from everything from cars to fashion. When it comes to a zafu or meditation cushions, yoga props or floor cushions, the tradition for meditation cushion has been mostly black.
I started making meditation cushions because I wanted some festive meditation cushions and yoga props for my yoga classes. At my core I’m an artist, so adding color to support cushion wasn’t a stretch. 😉 I try to choose colors that inspire, energize and calm.
The article What Color is your Zafu? by Elizabeth Marglin shares a quick list of what colors represent:
Yellow: Stimulates joy and uplifts the mind
Orange: Stirs up energy and boosts confidence
