I had less trouble with this than expected during sesshin this weekend, but fairly consistently have trouble with feet (the right in particular) falling asleep during extended periods of seiza (far and away my preferred posture).
I actually nearly stumbled after a 25-minute sit in the dojo this afternoon, despite having performed my usual cursory check to make sure everything seemed to be working right.
So this evening I pulled the trigger on a Sky Bench from Carolina Morning Designs, so I won't be putting my full weight on my lower legs and feet. (I went with this one instead of a standard-issue seiza bench because I'm a big feller.)
I'm don't see myself completely abandoning the zafu any time soon, but one guy has already broken his foot in the dojo recently due to what I understand was sleepyfoot (pardon the medical terminology), so I prefer to learn from his lesson than be next. :eek:
