|Figure Eights: In basic position, with arms out to sides at shoulder level, bend the knees and twist the body until the right hip is twisted forward. Transfer all of your weight to the right leg and slowly twist the right hip to the rear. Now the left hip is twisted forward. Transfer the weight to the left leg and slowly twist the hip to the rear. Now the right hip is twisted forward. Repeat. A figure eight is as though you are standing in the middle of the eight and your hips are tracing either side. Remember to transfer the weight to the hip that is moving to the rear, and as always, remember to bend the knees!
