It takes practice learning to pause and sit, it takes practice opening up your body to sit, it takes practice to sit with “what is” and the thing about practice if it doesn’t go well one day, most of us will get the opportunity to practice again. And we also get to practice finding the support we need for our body and spirit.

Creating space for Quiet

Creating a space for quiet and contemplation. What will encourage you to pause and just sit? Making a space could created with one cushion or several, you may want cushions to be all the same color or a variety for a work-place wellness room, studio, retreat center or a home studio. Make pausing a priority.

What is a zafu, why and how should I use it?

catspaw cushionsA zafu is commonly referred to a cushion that supports you. At Catspaw Studio we fill ours with
organic buckwheat hulls so its supports and conforms to your body. If you practice yoga or meditation or just simply like to sit on the floor, it can help take the press off your back and make it easier to sit for an extended period of time. You can use it a variety  of ways.

A translation of zafu is a cushion for sitting, where “za” means “sitting” or “to sit,” and “fu” means “cushion, bolster, a long pillow or cushion that provides support”; it can also mean “strengthen, reinforce, boost, fortify, or renew.”

We use a zafu to support us. We also want to have support and good posture as explained by WindMind.

the key is in the pause
