We use our arms each day in many directions and that knowledge helps us use them better.  It is good to teach your legs to do the same. For example take a person walking down the street and follow him or her for a short interval while you are facing him. This is easy enough so let’s move on. Do the same as you are seeing him only with one eye open and walking sideways using one side at a time. Do the same walking backwards and in smaller angles until you learn to walk simply by moving your hips in the direction you want to go and letting the legs follow.

Another way to go about this is to move in a circle or around an object such as a house or tree while at all times facing the same direction. Next you walk this circle while all the time looking either in or out and avoiding the open legs, close legs work. Find a way to move naturally and remember you have two hips.
