Not sure if this is the "right" way to do it, but I learnt by slowly reducing how high I posted in the saddle. From having my butt leave the saddle entirely each time I rose, I gradually lowered myself until eventually I was "posting" but was still in contact with the saddle. It trains your muscles without you realising it and from there the transition becomes easier. Not sure if I explained it right - it's weird but it worked for me!
Oh, and also, try practising it just after you come out of a canter, it's easier because your butt's already in the saddle. Just a little tip that helped me. It's hard, but you'll get it! :)
