You can do most anything you can do under saddle in hand, walk or trot. I have done exercises such as turns on the haunches with just a halter, lead rope, and dressage whip multiple times. Once she is warmed up with those, you can lunge her.
Lunging her first would only re-enforce the way she is moving instead of correcting it, but if you do the halter work first and she is moving well then she can lunge. On the lunge line, try to keep her head up and her hind moving forward. Practice straight lines and making her yield at the shoulder, yield at the hind, as well as making larger to smaller circles and vice versa. Transitions will also help as long as they are done in the proper frame. You may not be able to get quite what you get under saddle, but you can make significant progress without hopping on.
