    When I do a horizontal figure 8 from side to side I can see it in my head so my body can do it.

    With the vertical figure 8 I can't seem to visualize it and thus am having problems doing it. (On Ariellah's video she does a vertical figure 8)
    I teach my students these by having them imagine they are riding a bike uphill, pretending they are standing up on the pedals pushing them hard, swaying side to side. You can lean forward when you're learning them to help you get the movement. That seems to work for most on the forward vertical 8's. Reverse vertical 8's are easier for most for some reason. Hope this helps.
