I always prefer to sit in the Lotus position. That works best for me. But I don't sit with my legs as tightly as you traditionally see people do. I guess you could say I sit in a "sloppy" Lotus position.

I think every meditator has some physical distractions to deal with at
one time or another. Finding a position that you can stay in for a
long time is probably one of the most common. Experiment. It's OK to
sit in a chair, lay on the floor, be in the lotus position, and so on.
Whatever way you find that allows you to be aware, awake, and at
peace , is the right one. Bette wrote an excellent article on sitting
in the first sample issue of The Inner Traveler. I suggest that you
check out. The URL to download the issue is at:
I hope this helps.
