This sidelying demonstration of Cat Stretch Exercise #5 (The Cat Stretch Exercises | http://somatics.com/page7-cat_audio.htm) | shows how to integrate the lateral (side) hip joint muscles. This more advanced version incorporates head lifting and lowering movements synchronized with the movement of the leg.

This somatic education exercise combines with Nose in the Hole, an exercise for freeing twisting movements of the trunk, shoulders, and neck. | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDJbPKaAALU |

Ida Rolf, developer of The Rolf Method of Structural Integration, in her book, Rolfing, the Integration of Human Structures, referred to the hip joints as “the joints that determine symmetry”. This exercise fosters that symmetry.
