Painful sitting? The most stable posture for meditation is sitting on the floor. But for most new sitters, conventional postures put painful pressure on knees and ankles because of tightness in their hips and pelvis muscles. This book contains a series of simple, effective stretches that open the hips and relax the pelvis, allowing almost anyone to sit comfortably in a cross-legged or kneeling posture. With instructional photographs, The Hip Series offers an opportunity to get in touch with, and gently open, this area of your body, and to greatly enhance your zazen experience.
