I'm actually serious by the way.
When I am on heel edge? You dont mean toe edge?

I'm not sure what you mean by rotating hips????? As your hips should be aligned with the nose and tail of the board!!!!!

* This applies to learning to carve and hold an edge properly on hard pack groomers!!!!! Pow can be a different story!!!!!
By rotating hips I mean 2 positions. when you in sitting position your hips are behind you and 2nd position is your hips kinda pushed forward. My instructor told me that when I am transitioning to toe edge I should be rotating my hips from sitting position forward, like I am taking a piss how @hardasacatshead mentioned.
