I've heard that posture described as

sitting on your heels

rather than sitting on your toes. It is also properly called 'kneeling', although that term means, more generally, any of the several postures with knees to the ground, and is closely associated with prayer.

In your example, I would describe the first as 'kneeling', then go to 'he sat back on his heels in shock'heels'.
