Stacksitting causes extreme pain - I have low back kyphosis

I have a kyphotic curve in my spine just above my waist (like the image on p77 of 8steps, but more pronounced) and any attempts to stacksit cause pain, as does any attempt to mobilise my L5S1 joint. I've done the foundations course and even under the guidance of a teacher, I couldn't stacksit on even the lowest wedge. 
Stretchlying and stretch sitting on the other hand are wonderful and the stretch sit cushion has transformed air travel for me. 
ShouId I give up on stacksitting? Maybe my pelvis is better left where it is, which is in a fairly neutral position?
