We spend a lot of time sitting, whether it be for playing an instrument, working at the computer, or any number of daily activities. This position which is so familiar is often at the source of many pains which slowly settle in over time: tension in the back, the neck, the eyes… Our ability to be comfortable sitting has a direct effect on what we do while sitting, and we often wonder how to be “better” seated. What is a “good” position so that you no longer hurt? But what does it really mean to be “sitting well”? Rather than find an ideal and fixed position we can also have fun exploring the many variations that exist in this position and thus find, according to each individual’s needs, more comfort and flexibility in order to do whatever we need to do.
