I recently purchased the Gokhale chair and am having difficulty getting it to work for me. I took foundations class 2 years ago and am a huge Gokhale fan, practicing this method has changed my life and I share with others often. So, I feel strange saying that the chair isn't working for me, but it isn't, and I can't seem to figure out why. I've tried everything and have re-read the sitting and inner corset sections of the book. I still can't figure it out for sure, but suspect that it may just have too large and too firm of a seat for me. I'm 5'2" and spend 8 hours on a computer at a desk all day, so long-term comfort is key. The 100 year old antique chair I've been using the past 2 years with my Gokhale modifications like a wedge is far more comfortable and has kept me pain-free, but the Gokhale chair causes pain when I sit in it. One problem I'm having with the Gokhale chair is the depth of the seat, when I stretch sit my feet don't reach the ground, and it causes my lower back to hurt. My old chair was fine because the seat depth is smaller, allowing my legs to angle down and hit the floor. Also, the large depth causes the edge of the chair to hit the bend in my knee and lower leg, putting pressure as well. When I stack sit, the firmness of the seat starts to hurt my upper leg, as it's quite a bit of pressure over several hours. So, both sitting techniques are causing pain. I would think it's all me except that my old chair has worked great for 2 years with no pain at all. I purchased the Gokhale chair because I wanted a chair that works that is also professional looking (unlike my old antique chair!). Anyway, I have hope of making the Gokhale chair work for me, but I think I need some help with it. If I still can't get it to work after some help, then I think I'll need to return it, unfortunately. Can someone help me figure out if we can make the Gokhale chair work for me?
