Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I get a Stoolyoga?
We'd love it if you would order one on our website but you can also find us on Amazon (we're on Prime!) or Etsy too - you can choose your favorite shopping platform! Even if it means we pay them a commission fee, it'll be worth it if it gets you to meditate.
Does the Stoolyoga come in different sizes?
No, the Stooly was designed to be a one size fits all solution. Its angles and wide seat allow for many different body types to sit comfortably.
What are the best ways to sit on Stoolyoga?
We have found that the Burmese, Half-Lotus, Full-Lotus, and Kneeling positions are best suited for use with the Stoolyoga.
What else can I do with my Stoolyoga?
Some time after production, Stoolyoga revealed itself as a multi-functional tool. Immediately, it showed its talents as a feet-elevating toilet companion, lap desk for working from a sofa or watching a movie in bed, a sitting bench that helps back alignment whenever you sit on it (while reading, folding your laundry, sitting on the train, or just hanging in the park with friends), and as a foot stool for our painter friends.
Most recently, we can tell you it traveled abroad, boarded a plane, and elevated a valued customer/frequent flyer's feet during a cross-Atlantic flight. We are waiting for more news from our customers around the world on that one - Stay Tuned!
Can the Stoolyoga be used on all surfaces?
Yes, as long as you make sure that the surface is steady. We've tried it in parks (even on muddy days), hardwood floors, concrete, asphalt, and in our community garden with no difficulty.
How do you clean the Stoolyoga?
Very simply, actually. We recommend you use a clean cotton cloth and warm water to gently scrub your Stoolyoga.
Is there a cheaper version of the Stoolyoga?
There are other meditation benches in the marketplace. However, you get what you pay for. This is perhaps the most high-quality meditation bench on the market. It is made in the United States using an ethical and sustainable process. As more and more customers demand the Stoolyoga, the more buying power we'll have to negotiate lower prices for the premium materials used to make the Stoolyoga.
Does Stoolyoga offer wholesale pricing?
Yes! We would love to help bring our Stoolyoga meditation benches to your meditation centers, yoga studios, retreats, retail shops, e-commerce store, and even as Christmas presents for the entire family! Contact us for more information.
What is meditation?
In meditation, the mind is clear, relaxed, and inwardly focused. Meditation is a profound and deep state of peace. When the mind is silent and calm, yet completely alert, you can escape all of the noise and distractions of your daily routine. It is the means for an inner transformation that allows you to grasp all the levels of yourselves and finally experience the center of consciousness from within. It enhances one's spiritual awareness.
Why should I meditate?
Because meditation is a precise technique for resting the mind and attaining a full state (with practice) of consciousness, when your mind is at rest and you are consciously aware of the present moment, your life is getting easier, happier and actually more productive day after day.
Nevertheless, recently science has discovered and verified many of the benefits meditators felt for years. In this article, written in 2017, Matthew Thorpe MD PhD, highlighted 11 benefits of meditation that have since been verified by scientific study:
Promoting Emotional Health
Lengthening Attention Span
May be reducing Age-Related Memory Loss
May be Helpful in Fighting Addictions
Helping Control Pain
Decreasing Blood Pressure
