Many people don’t actually know where their hips are. Feel the outside of your upper leg bone (femur) and work out where the top of that bone is. With your hand on your hip area, lift your knee and you can sense which bit is moving and which isn’t. Find the point at the top of the leg bone.
Your hip joint is slightly in and up from this point. For many people this is lower and further in than they might have imagined their hip to be.
Once you’ve worked out where your hips joints actually are, place them directly above your knees (which in turn are above your feet).
