So, I usually sit without a zafu. Lately I have reverted back to the zafu because I have been getting pinched nerves and my knee has been hurting from the angle. Anyways, I usually put my hands in the "hand in hand, with thumbs touching." This is not working very well when on the zafu because I feel like I either am slumped over or I have to hold my hands higher which is stressing my shoulders. I tried putting my hands on my knees and it really opened up my chest. I don't see anything wrong with doing this, but I am just curious if this is completely normal. I do prefer my hands in the "hand in hand" posture and I can't seem to find a way to make myself comfortable. Is there anything I can do?
