Sitting in a Chair

If none of these poses is comfortable for your meditation, you may sit in a chair - if you remember to choose the chair wisely. The tendency is to totally relax or slump in a chair. Be sure to counter this impulse by reminding yourself that you are sitting down to meditate - relaxed and totally attentive.

Pick a chair which gives you firm support. A large over-stuffed lounge chair may be uncomfortable for a long meditation. The back of the chair can give you support if it is straight. A common error is letting the legs hang loosely. It is essential that the feet be equally placed on the ground. The equal placement will assure that your lower spine and hips do not get out of balance.
