Made from sustainable English Oak, this beautifully simple stool will complement the user's inward search for mindfulness. Luckily for the user, the edges are all gently rounded, so there are no sharp corners. This attractive stool will let you sit in a comfortable position while keeping the spine and back straight. It allows a relaxing and distraction-free meditation.

We love this foldable floor chair because it has five adjustable positions. It makes it easier than ever to get comfortable and in the zone for your moment of mindfulness. This chair is so flexible that it can lie flat or fold in half. So, taking it with you on a retreat or yoga class is not out of the question. Padded for extra comfort and with a removable cover for easy cleaning, the chair’s trimmings are chich and made from vegan leather.

Next, is this foldable (and affordable) meditation cushion, courtesy of Iguazu on Etsy. Foldable with handles, this meditation cushion chair makes a good choice if you're on the go and need five minutes of mindfulness. Plus, it comes in a small selection of colours, which we appreciate. The pattern is refreshing - and for the price, it's a bargain.

With this chair from Amazon, you can support your lower back for increased comfort and relaxation. Practical, this chair folds and only weighs 1kg – which makes it easy to transport and store. Perfect if you’re heading out for a retreat – a great travelling companion. This seat is ideal for those moments where you need to bury your head into a book – or even a floor gaming chair.

We love this mango wood bench from Etsy. Not only is it foldable, but it comes in a fabric, tote bag for easy carrying – making it a great companion for travel. The design is a Pi-Style meditation bench - and who knew that mango tree wood would look so beautiful? Made in India, this bench is great for modified lotus position, Siddhasana, or kneeling position (Vajrasana).
