This moment of limbo felt surprisingly good. It turns out, that was the zero gravity position. For that split second in limbo, it felt right. With that sensation in mind, I developed the Zero Gravity Zen Bag.

Multiple studies have shown that meditation can help reduce levels of depression and anxiety, along with helping people reach a higher level of mindfulness and inner peace, but according to the National Institute of Health, only 8% of Americans actually meditate. Why so few? - Because it hurts. Meditating in the centuries-old lotus position, with back straight, legs crossed, and sitting at a 90-degree angle, is painful.
Now there is a more effective and comfortable way to meditate: introducing the Zero Gravity Zen Bag – designed to cradle the body in a relaxed and natural position with legs elevated above the heart and the back reclined at a 130-degree angle. NASA developed the zero gravity position to reduce physical stress on the bodies of astronauts during lift off. Now the Zero Gravity Zen Bag is taking meditation out of the dark ages, delivering a much more effective and comfortable way to meditate.
While sitting in the zero gravity position, you no longer experience the pain associated with archaic meditation poses. The spine is cradled in a naturally curved, reclined position, which reduces spinal compression. Elevated legs can be crossed without restricted blood flow. With reduced pressure on the diaphragm, there is increased lung capacity and improved respiration, making deep, controlled breathing easier.
“I developed this because I wanted to enjoy the benefits of meditation without the pain and discomfort I was feeling when I tried getting into the lotus position,” said Keith Zivalich, the creator of the Zero Gravity Zen Bag. “In fact, after a few minutes sitting on the floor with by back straight and legs crossed, the pain was so intense that I started to fall backward, just to relieve the pressure points. As I was falling back, there was a point where I was in limbo, halfway between sitting upright and lying flat on the floor. This moment of limbo felt surprisingly good. It turns out, that was the zero gravity position. For that split second in limbo, it felt right. With that sensation in mind, I developed the Zero Gravity Zen Bag.”
The Zero Gravity Zen Bag will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on March 8.
