I have found that switching to RATE MODE momentarily works well. In HH mode, any little twitch can make the gyro think a correction is required, and the gyro will give more and more correction in the vain hope that it can undo that little twitch. (You're motionless on the ground, so no amount of correction is going to help.)

I take it further: switch to RATE MODE until my headspeed is up for takeoff. No more twitches, so no more pirouettes.
