I actually was in th same boat with you especially during trot to canter transitions. In canter, if you lean to far forward you won’t feel your seat bones (easier if you have a horse that has a slow canter, harder on a horse that has a crazy speed canter) but think about opening up your chest and sitting back, even though it might feel weird, make it your focus and eventually it’ll become something you’ll automatically do. Think of the alignment, should hip heel.

Also when rising, imagine bringing your hip forward along with your shoulders.

Sometimes just realising and correcting your body is enough and soon you’ll get the hang of it!
No stirrup work, riding with only one hand, and no rein work.
