About

The kneeling bench IKUKO was designed as a tool and companion
to soften our practice, allowing us to sit freely in a comfortable manner.

A mind-body practice

Meditation may be practiced for many reasons, such as to increase calmness and physical relaxation, to improve psychological balance, to cope with illness or to enhance overall health and well-being. It requires an open and straight posture and mind. Give it a try, you'll see!

Alternative to cross-legged

Most of the time our hips are not open enough for a crossed-legged position. We spend hours sitting in regular chairs thus decreasing our flexibility. Sitting in a kneeling position allows us to spend more time enjoying what we're doing, less on contemplating discomfort.

Two sizes, Two colors

No matter what size, flexibility and floor color: we've got it covered! The standard height (18 cm) will fit most people taller than 5'5 or 165 cm. 16 cm is available for smaller or more flexible people. Two finishes: natural or dark brown + the legs come easily apart and it is slipped in a 100% organic cotton pouch.

Okay, but what else?

IKUKO can be used for meditation but also for: just sitting, breathing, relaxing, playing/bathing the kids, eating cupcakes, watching your favorite movie, stretching, playing the flute... Pretty much any activity that don't necessitate a higher position.

Eco & responsible

Proudly 100% Canadian made, IKUKO is built in a strong type of wild cherrywood from wood offcuts and natural pigmented oils. Its cotton pouch is sewn within a charitable organization supporting women in need helping them to regain independance.

Main benefits

IKUKO provides so many incredible benefits that you'll instantly feel you're doing it right. No nonsense!

Natural spinal curvature

A free torso having to balance itself engages, trains and strenghtens core muscles and reduces tendency to slouch. Natural alignment also help to reduce neck strain and prevent muscle tension in the shoulders.

Open sitting angle

The specific angle and curve of the seat rotate the hips forward, opening the angle between the upper and lower body thus decreasing damaging compressive loads on the low back.

No numbness

Because the body's weight is evenly distributed, circulation in the legs is improved decreasing heaviness or swelling from static sitting.

Deeper breathing

This sitting position similar to walking upright, frees the lungs and upper organs and allows for deeper breathing.

Improved concentration

Increased oxygen supply and intuitive comfort subconsciously result in improved concentration and ability to focus.
