I guess my question is this; is it better to sit then to lay down? Does it matter which you choose? You always see people meditating in lotus or seiza, but maybe it's just because "it's the way everyone else does it"?
I usually prefer a half-lotus position with my righ leg tucked under the root chakra (perinium). I think in terms of meditation most teachers preferences are full lotus, half lotus, seiza, chair, laying down. The most important things being posture and comfort.
Like Kev said most teachers don't recommend laying down for new students because they tend to fall asleep.
My 2 cents.
