As technologies keep us tied up to our computers, TVs, smart phones, tablets - you name it - researchers confirm that most of us are sitting in awkward positions longer than ever before. This leads to the development of poor body postures that become a habit, aka: a comfortable posture to stay in. It becomes necessary for people to “re-learn” how to sit properly and hold a healthy posture. But what does a good posture look like - for both - sitting and standing? You might have heard that our spine consist of 33 small bones called vertebrae. When we look at our body - from the front, those vertebrae should appear stacked in a straight line. When we look at our body from the side, our spine should have 3 curves; one at our neck, one at our shoulders, and one at the lower part of our back. This is called an “S-shape” posture. This shape should be kept at all times - while we are sitting (especially!), standing and walking. These 3 curves help us keep the back upright and absorb some of the body stress. Reminding of a slope (due to the incline) and having a prolonged tip that looks like a triangle, the OMigo pillow is designed to support the lower part of the back by making you naturally sit in an S-shape posture. At the beginning it might feel a little uncomfortable, but don’t be frightened! Give your muscles some time to “re-learn” how to sit in a correct posture and build the required muscle strength for this new habit. As soon as you sit on our ZENAGOY pillow/cushion, you will feel how your body naturally wishes to move forward (due to incline), but the upper part of the body wants to lean back (to keep you from falling) by naturally making an S-shape. This is the correct siting posture in which we allow our spine to rest by engaging - instead of putting pressure on - our muscles. This is the posture in which we open up our chest and give more space for our lungs to work properly. Our breath becomes slower and deeper, and the energy starts flowing more easily as the relaxation process begins.
OMigo meditation pillows/ floor cushions were created by keeping you and the environment in mind. All our pillows are 100% hand-made in Europe, Environmentally, Human and Vegan friendly. / W 13.78” x L 15.75” x H 4.77” (W 35cm x L 40cm x H 12cm) / 4.7 lb – 2.1 kg
The outer part of the meditation pillow is hand wash friendly. We advice to remove the filling before washing the pillow, in case there is a need. Please avoid putting the meditation pillow in the washing machine as it can deform the shape.
When you pronounce the word “OMigo”, does it sound to you like a Spanish word “amigo” (“a friend”)? Good, because everything we wanted was for you to have a good friend in a form of a meditation pillow/ floor cushion which would take care of your Body, Mind and Spine. The Sanskrit word OM means many things: love, eternity, purity, peace. OM is the sound of the Universe. There is a reason behind why most (if not all!) Meditation and Yoga practices start with chanting OM 3 times. Chanting OM helps to align the body, mind and soul with the vibrations of the Universe. We combined the Sanskrit word “OM” with a Spanish word “amigo” and created your new best friend – OMigo - who will help you find peace and balance in your daily Life.
