Benefits of sitting cross-legged on a chair?
Well, the top benefits of sitting cross-legged on the chair is that it may help you reduce your knee pain and comfortableness.
Sitting with your leg down to the floor is often said good by experts, but more often you will feel very uncomfortable.
Then just switch to a cross-legged position and your unease feeling will be gone.
Just sit like you are doing meditation, and it works like magic.

Improve blood flow
Sitting in one position might give you tingly feet and hamper blood flow. This might lead to muscle pain in your legs. But by sitting cross-legged, you can change up your leg position and improve blood flow. Although, the best way to improve blood flow is by getting up from the chair and walking around.
Take a break, it is okay 🙂

From the usual and recommended 90-degree leg position, if you change your leg position to cross-legged then you will surely feel good. Changing position will ease up your joints as well.

Is there such a thing as a crossed-legged office chair?
There is no cross-legged office chair, but just buy a large-sized office chair, and it should work. I use an office chair bought from the local market, and I can sit comfortably cross-legged on it. But if you are tall like 6 feet then you should consider something like Green Soul Monster chairs.
