You don’t necessarily need products to meditate or practice yoga. You really only need three things: time, inclination, and a quiet place to sit. That said, cultivating your own space with peace-promoting objects can definitely help you maintain a consistent meditation or yoga practice.

“Much like an encounter with the refrigerator conjures thoughts of food, and a glance at the couch invites a comfortable sprawl, catching sight of your meditation seat in a sanctified space will evoke your deepest yearnings and inspire you to do your practice,” writes Sandra Anderson, co-author of Yoga: Mastering the Basics.

So what do you need to transform a room, nook, or empty corner of your house into a sacred space for meditation or yoga?

Here are a few suggestions:

1. Seat of Your Soul Buckwheat-Hull-Filled Meditation Cushion

This meditation pillow will align your body and cushion your behind, allowing you to sit longer in comfort. Even better, it’s all natural. The cover is certified-organic cotton, while buckwheat hulls make up the entirety of the filling. Pick your ideal size and color.

This Sanskrit symbol evokes the ultimate reality. Place it on your meditation altar as a beacon of motivation, or stare into the light patina of its surface as you contemplate infinity. Just make sure you have the space—this metal sculpture is 20 inches wide and almost 22 inches tall!

3. Bean Products Bamboo Meditation Bench

The traditional Japanese meditation position is called seiza, and it’s way more comfortable when you use a cushion and a bench. Kneel on the cushion with this bamboo bench under your bum and take a moment for yourself.
