               Yes, you read it right. You can practice Meditation on Chair. You can use any chair in your Home or you can purchase specially made Meditation Chair from Amazon, by clicking here Meditation Chair.
               Once you get the Meditation chair, be sure to sit away from the back of chair and rest your feet firmly on the floor.

                         You know, sometimes people ask me on my online meditation class Can we meditate while lying down?😕 Then I always answer them, Yes you can!😂 but you are more likely to fall asleep. So buy Meditation Chair from Amazon or practice on lawn / floor.
