A good Zafu really helps (preferably buckwheat, and no, I'm not with the company, but acquired one of this particular model. :smile:

Sitting still for long periods doesn't come naturally but it does get easier over time.

I used to think so, but experience (hard experience, injury, &c) have taught me otherwise. Really, it's better to get the corrections you need in your posture BEFORE you reinforce those problems in your meditation. Even if it's just your bottom that's hurting (for now).



well, im gonna have to wait until next summer or early spring before i have the chance to anyone check my posture.

Personally I find that a cushion makes it worse in the long run. Once you get used to sitting on the floor then it's all good.

Posture can be corrected by correct breathing and yoga, but for this you should receive instruction.
