I don't know if this is an option for you, but whenever I have trouble or feel I am holding myself wrong I always take the stirrups off my saddle. It might sound silly, but it really helps me to find the correct positioning / posture to sit the trot. Then again, my problem was stiffness in my knees, so I don't know. But, I find it much easier to ride without stirrups for a few and then put them back on & everything seems to fall into it's respective place.
