Be open and relaxed in your posture, letting the hips relax as you work through the movement.
If you can manage, hold for 3-4 seconds before slowly lowering.
You can do around 6-8 repetitions on each side. Aim to repeat this 2-3 times.
You can also develop this by reducing the amount of support from the chair or wall. Practice with just using as little support as you can. This exercise will help improve your balance and increase your strength in the hip area.
