I'm sorry but that is just awful advice.
You need to learn this on a tramp or something if you can, because you don't really seem to understand the trick. You want to pop, lean back on the couch (in whatever direction you spin), bring up your legs, and look at your feet. You'll see the landing come around before you know it. It's a really easy trick once you get it, I wish I had a video of one of mine on here to show you.
