Gently and gradually. Just "sitting" is a technique itself. It's
helpful to close your eyes and try to visualize yourself in Lotus.
Also to begin by crossing your legs at the ankle and slowly working up
to placing just one foot on the opposite thigh first. It's most
important to go at your own pace, be of good cheer, and listen to and
honor your body always. Another tip: keep the spine as straight as
comfortably possible, without rigidity, and be sure the head is
"floating" above the body, and breathe into the area you are trying to
stretch. Good Luck and Peace -- Bette Rose
