I was looking for a chair with large space to sit crossed legged. This chair is one of the 3 options I could find, there really is not many competitor to this chair. The only other option that comes close is the Sukhasana chair, with a price tag double this one. This chair fits the bill. I really like the keeling and deep squat sitting on the chair, it is unique for those 2 position, and that is a big plus! You can even just sit regular on it, by adjusting the seat higher as a small backrest. The only issue I have with it is that you will not be comfortable with a basic crossed-legged position, you have to go half-lotus (or full lotus if you are one of thooose people). Its not a huge deal, because with the elevated seat, half lotus is quite easy. Also, since there is no backrest, not even a minimalist one, you have to sitting in lotus with a very active posture, you cannot relax much at all. Which might be what you are looking for. Overall good product and good experience with the company.

I am your typical office employee who is confined to a desk with monitors for the work day. I used to have a standing desk, and that worked for the job I had where I moved around too much to sit. But after joining the software world, I found that standing for extended stretches actually hurt my ability to concentrate. It was a very reluctant transition to sitting, one that actually gave my hips more pain. I tried to use a medicine ball, but even that wasn't enough to occupy my joints. To help with the hip pain I began training myself out of sitting with one leg crossed over the other. But I found that all i wanted to do was stretch and no chair available to me would let me do that, I found that sitting in a lotus position was the one position I wanted to be in. After some googling, I found the Soul Seat. A few weeks of thought and financial consideration, I decided to pull the trigger, if anything, I could try it for 30 days. Well, after the first day I was a Soul Seat convert. Soul Seat is incredible because it's a seat that you can move in. there isn't the one single position we all know and dread, there are dozens that you can easily shift into. There are positions that can help stretch out anything that is in pain or is tight, but can also just be a comfortable seat where you are free to sit as you desire. I can't say this is a seat for everyone, but this is certainly the seat for me. I love my Soul Seat.
As a martial artist I pay a lot of attention to my posture and flexibility. I would hate for the training I do to get undone by hours of sitting at my office. I do have a motorized standing desk but personally I find that for the heavy thinking sort of work I do it does help me to sit down. I love the Soulseat because I could remove the top insert entirely and just use it as a platform to sit in seiza, fudosa, full squat, and other beneficial positions during the day. I appreciate that I can keep my back straight throughout the day and passively work on my ankle and hip flexibility.
I love my chair and recommend it to all my coworkers!
