You can over-exaggerate to see what it feels like, too.
A very visual "visual": when in the saddle, imagine you have a tampon in, and you are pulling the string towards the horse's ears. That will make you tip your pelvis in the right direction.

Oh man! Now I'm going to be thinking about tampons while I'm correcting my pelvis!!! I don't know what I'd do if an instructor started yelling that out to me across an arena!!! I'd probably fall right out of the saddle!
