Technique Tips: One Side Hip Circle

Today we’re looking at the One-sided Hip rotation, or the inward hip circle.

As the name suggests, this is a hip circle focussed on one side, or one hip. 💃💃

To start, you get into second position; one foot flat, and the other slightly forward and on the ball of the foot. Comfortable, bent knees and tuck in your pelvis. 🌸

The motion starts with the hip that has the bent knee. You start by pushing the hip back (try and keep the opposite hip stationary), then push it out and rotate around, back to the neutral position. Squeeze your oblique as you rotate up back into neutral. This move can be evolved and made more dramatic with some tweaks.

Happy practicing! 💃🙌
