It is very important that you sit in a healthy, balanced way, so that your whole body is happy when you play. It is not so much about learning the “correct” posture and rigidly keeping it, as constantly finding the balance of your body and your instrument.
Therefore I will encourage you to keep going through the below guidelines again and again. Take time to experiment with the way you sit, while being mindful of what your body tells you.
A quick note – although some models of harps enable us to play while standing, today I will be referring to instruments that are designed for the player to sit while using them.
