    I Teach At A Primary School...

    Since i teach 7, and 8 year olds, i tend to sit on the floor a lot, with them!! Some of the other teachers who also teach the grade 7's and 8's prefer sitting on a chair when reading to them, but i like sitting the floor right next to them. I don't know why, but its just way more...

    I never stopped to think of how bizarre "Indian style" is as a sitting pose. It seems so natural. Who doesn't sit like this?

    This is pretty much the only "yoga" pose I can

    perform. Bonus: I grew up calling Indian style Criss Cross Applesauce. Who else?

    I Honestly Didn't Know You Called It That =/

    I thought you just sat crossed-legged.... *raises eyebrow* Oh, well.... *still confused*  I’d rather sit on the floor and sit with my legs crossed: carpet, wood, gravel, bricks, tiles, grass, ect. It's so much more comfortable to me. On my bed, couches, now on my...

    Huh?

    Is that just cross-legged? Like, sitting with your legs crossed? I do that all the time. even on a chair, i dont have my feet on the ground or cross my knees, i have my feet up on the chair and my legs crossed.

    Didn't Know It's Called 'indian Style'

    I am from india and no one here finds this sitting posture bizzare. In India it is called 'pallathi'. I personally find it really comforting and sit like this whenever I am doing some task that requires deep thinking. Although my sister finds it funny that I even sit on chairs...

    I always do this. Some of my best friends

    called me "Indy" in high school - that was over 20 years ago. Today, I'm still not comfortable sitting any other way but it seems to be taking more and more of a toll on my knees which are starting to really hurt quite a bit. I don't know for sure that it's related but it feels...

    Even At The Office

    Yes. I'll take my heels off and sit like an Indian (that's what we were taught to call it in grade school) or one leg under. And it helps me be more comfortable in my office chair! It does seem so improper though because your shoes are off at the workplace, but I can't help it.

    Usually

    I always sit Indian style, usually. Other than when I'm sitting at the computer because the chair isn't big enough to do so. If I'm sitting on the couch, the bed, the floor or anything else, I am always sitting Indian style. I have sit this way since I was a teenager, and it's...

    It's the Best Sitting Position.

    Someone calls it Indian style, someone Turkish sitting position others lotus flower.  It's the same but important is that I am always sitting like this. I eat, I am in Indian style. I watch TV, I am in Turkish sitting position. I sit in lotus flower even when I am at...

    Always Indian Style

    I love sitting "Indian Style" (if you will) anywhere I am. I always thought this was a bit odd because no other friends or colleagues my age sit in a booth- kick off their shoes and sit cross legged. However - I just found out that my great grandmother was 50% Cherokee Indian...

    Sitting Naturally

    Sitting this way is part of my life style as I follow a meditation practice. I believe it is a natural way of sitting as the body rests comfortably on itself without effort when accustomed to this position.  The knees should rest on the floor as this grounds the body's...

    I Sit Like This Everywhere

    I'm sitting this way now, and probably will later. I sit like this in nice restaurants in the booths, and if I'm riding in a car somewhere. I can't help it. I think it was because it was drilled into my head back in elementary. " Cross your legs and put your hands in your...

    Comfortable

    I have south asian heritage. So this is not uncommon for the family. I have always found it comfortable from childhood days to sit in front of the TV and glare at the screen with my siblings. I imagine it is because of the environment that I grew up in that makes me just sit on...

    Often.

    what an interesting group - so random! I like sitting Indian style ... though now what I think about it, isn't it kind of a racist remark?  Anyway, I like sitting cross-legged, EXCEPT when it's on a hard surface when my ankle bone would dig into the ground - ouch.  I...

    Do I Have To Be Indian?

    Yeah I always sit like this, even when I'm sitting on a chair. Even at the office when no one is around and this damn pain in my back starts, I sit like this, more comfortable, who will turn around me and see how I'm sitting anyway?!  I grab my chair close to the desk so anyone...

    Why Is It So Hard To Stop!

    I don't mean to make it sound like it's a drug, but even when I remind myself not to sit that way I still do. Heck yeah I'm sitting like that now. My bad knee will probably protest it later, but oh well.
