The OmBase mission is to make meditation easier. We offer physical support through designing and producing unique, innovative, superior quality meditation benches and accessories, and aim to inspire, motivate and share information through our initiatives as well. Through these products and initiatives, we aim to make meditation more accessible, convenient and comfortable for all.
Our first OmBase model has been designed to function as not only a portable and highly adjustable meditation bench, but also an adaptable yoga prop. OmBase makes sitting in meditation more comfortable, by offering precise support in a variety of common seated postures, and encouraging proper posture, with less effort. It comes in 4 unique colours.
OmBase is designed to be helpful for both new and experienced practitioners. It offers precise support based upon the needs of the individual user, on any given day.
OmBase was designed with quality in mind. We believe that the most sustainable product is one that does not have to be thrown away. To ensure our product is built to last our designers chose materials that would make OmBase a reliable companion for years to come.
Brand New Meditation Practitioner: Bart
“It’s pretty comfortable, there’s a lot of pressure off my quads…. Even just sitting on this, it takes pressure off my lower back”
Yoga & Meditation Practitioner: Faya
“OmBase gives me a comfortable meditation that I didn’t have with traditional blocks. Something I love about OmBase is the tilt that it has. Whenever I used to sit for meditation, my meditation was not really deep because I always suffered from pain in my lower back [due to whiplash from a car accident] and this didn’t happen with OmBase because of the tilt.”
Yoga & Meditation Instructor: Sina
“My experience with OmBase has been incredible. As a practitioner its difficult to find somewhere to meditate on the go or in a park or in nature, and this way the portability of OmBase allows you to bring it anywhere. As a teacher I observe a lot of different bodies, and a lot of different ways that people are finding comfort in their seat and OmBase gives this variability of seated positions that will fit any of the individual’s conditions. A common thing in Meditation is that people begin feeling discomfort in the body predominantly in the hips and the knees, and if we can find a way to try different seated positions that may open us up or avoid the discomfort of just sitting then we can have the experience of the meditation, otherwise its us sitting through the discomfort.”
Alternative Uses: Tracy
“When I first saw OmBase one of the things that really captured my attention was the use for myself when I am attending conferences, as we all know we are sitting in uncomfortable chairs for lengthy periods of time and I saw a use for OmBase to use it as a foot stool to support my lower back. If I didn’t need it for my feet I could also use it as lumbar support.”
As a company, OmBase is committed to making meditation easier; not only by offering physical support through our products, but by motivating, inspiring, and sharing information through our initiatives as well. Our first major initiative is the #MeditationMovement, which was designed to illustrate the diversity in the people who meditate, and the benefits they receive from their practices using an engaging video format. Since we launched the Movement in August, we have received videos from all over the world showcasing stories about how meditation is improving people’s lives. Using content like this, we hope to not only introduce meditation to those who may be inexperienced in a relatable & “human” way, but also connect an grow the meditation community around the world. For more information on the #MeditationMovement, or to join us, please send us an email or visit our website.
OmBase is a highly driven, diverse, and dedicated team of people who came together to realize a vision. We share a collective passion for meditation, and a deep commitment for making positive change within this world. Let us introduce ourselves to you.
