I can imagine playing while kneeling, not that I've ever tried it, but laying down would be very hard. The problem is gravity. Gravity would pull the bow down over the bridge and you would have to fight it with your bow arm. Don't get me wrong, it's doable. :-)

While i can't say i've ever played laying down, way over my ability's. I'm lucky just to bow straight right now :D I decided to try walking and such.

While i found i should clean my floors before walking so i don't trip over anything it did help out. I ended up settling with more swaying back and fourth. It helped me relax and feel more in tune or at least my intonation seemed to be better then just standing still. I tend to tense when i start concentrating to much.

 

Though i won't lie, alot of the time im to lazy to stand, especially after work, but sitting and swaying helps just as much to :D  

Lead me, Follow me, or get out of my way!

Moving around while playing can't be too bad of an idea.  It doesn't seem to hurt this guy's playing much..

Yes, I'd imagine ot wpould be difficult. The only practical reason I could see for someone playing while lying down is the case where perhaps a person is ill and bedridden and cannot sit in a chair or stand.   However, in such a case I guess it would be more feasible for the persons back to be propped up with some pillows or something so they are in at least a semi-seated position and opposed to playing wile flat on the back.
