Is there a word or phrase (would prefer word) to describe someone sitting with their legs tucked. I'm not sure if this makes sense, but what I'm attempting to convey is that they are not outstretched but rather, sort of in an X position. (your legs are not under you.)
I'll give you an example to make it easier to comprehend. Envisage you had to eat with a handful of people from one large plate(a basin), you would all have to encircle this basin in order to eat, so you would all have to readjust the way you sit.. and that is what I'm alluding to.. 'the X position'.. more or less crossed.
The reason I ask is, I was watching sport news the other day, and they said 'Chelsea are sitting comfortably at the top'. In my language, we would say they sat (in that X position) which would imply to comfort and control.
I hope I made sense.. Thank you (ah, It just came to mind, the way you sit if you would mediate maybe?)
