"Seiza" - is the formal sitting posture. Sit on your heels with your big toes touching or crossed right over left. Your knees should be about two fists apart. Your palms rest on top of the thighs with your elbows relaxed against your sides. Maintain a comfortable erect posture. It is polite to sit seiza anytime that Sensei (teacher) is teaching.
