DIY-Foam Zabuton & Yoga Mat
« on: June 06, 2016, 07:32:30 am »
Hi,
I was wondering if anyone has had any experience making a zabuton (sitting mat) or a yoga mat from memory foam. I've done some research but am not sure as to what grade of memory foam is best. There is a zen center that is offering a zabuton that uses two kinds of foam but they give no details as to what type is used.  The yoga mat is going to be strictly used for Yin/Restorative practice so I'm not overly concerned about standing or balancing asanas, I find doing them on a bare floor better anyway...

I'd greatly appreciate any info you guys could provide.  Thank you, Steve

Why can't I ever get a sensible reply when I post on any Dharma website???
My post was read 2355 times and not one response. Is there any intelligent life out there?
On other sites they've recommend using blankets from the Salvation Army, rags....
I spent 5 years meditating on thin cane mats while in Thailand, Sri Lanka & Burma, so I'm tired of that low-rent solution to everything that some folks have.

Anyway, I had a 5 min conversation with someone that knows nothing about Dharma but was able to offer more help than all Dharma & Yoga sites combined.

Anyhoo, sorry for sounding so negative and unmindful, but for heaven's sake WAKE UP! folks

Based on the title, I opened the thread to learn how to make a mat!  Lol!

Sounded like a fun thing to learn!
