Leg yield, which my horse and I are working on. I think leg yields are the first building block. Then there's side pass, shoulder in, haunches. Those are the main ones that I know but can't do. Other than that, there are probably more, but I rather not guess as I honestly haven't a clue.
For leg yield, take an obstacle, like a barrel (a tall one) ,and practice walking at it straight, then keeping your horse's front end straight, but moving the entire horse sideways with forward energy by using a driving seat and keeping your outside leg on and directing the horse over with your inside leg. That is what is helping me and my horse with our leg yields though I have a long way to go still (and would love help!)
