Just scoop the pedals basicly and thry to get the seat up your ass is the best way to describe it. You can probally only get the back up first but after some practice youu'll get it..

this may sound really weird, but i pictured dolphins when i first learned how to hop. Like a fucking majestic dolphin, springing out of the water, then diving back in.. thats just how i pictured them. youll get it eventually. but basically just do what the people above are saying.

study this shit..

It helps if you angle your pedals down a little bit if that makes sense. I learned them by jumping little curb cuts...I'd pull up my front wheel then when my back wheel hit I'd pull that up. I kept poking the back wheel up earlier and eventually got it. Just stick with it, you'll get it!

Something that helped me get used to lifting the back end up was to slowly roll up to a parking block, get the front over it then lift the back end up and over it. Breaking it down into separate sections helped me a lot and after only doing it a few times, I was able to string it together and get decent hops for how long I had been riding at that point.

Oh and for bunny hops, try getting up curbs. Go slow towards a curb and lift your front wheel onto it, then kick your back end up onto it. Once you get comfortable with that try doing it all at once. Or if your trying them on flat ground, focus on landing on your front wheel. That will help you get the back one up in the air.
