I'll take a stab at this one.
  • estar sentado con las piernas cruzadas = sitting cross-legged (also see the child's term criss cross applesauce)
  • estar sentado con las piernas abiertas = sitting with your legs open
  • estar sentado de rodillas = In English, this would actually be considered kneeling. If your behind is all the way down on your heels, it could be called a "sitting kneel."
  • estar sentado de cuclillas = squatting, crouching, sitting on your haunches
  • estar sentado con una rodilla encima de la otra = sitting with your legs crossed
  • estar sentado con las piernas estiradas = sitting with your legs stretched out, sitting with your legs extended.
