I'm looking for a good pose to sit in for meditation, tried a lotus style posture but it hurts a bit.

 

There's sitting, standing, lying, and walking. 

There's nothing wrong with meditating on a chair. Lying posture imo is underrated. Walking is great. A relaxed mindful walk is healthy. I think walking is literally in our bones and our evolution. I have a kneeling bench and I like it.

Try kneeling. A kneeling bench, or place a meditation cushion sideways between your legs (kind of like a saddle), so that you're not placing your whole weight on your legs.

 

I can't sit in a lotus position either. I'm just not flexible enough. It's really uncomfortable. But kneeling seems to do the trick too, your spine remains straight.
