- In Natural turning figures going forward (e.g. 2nd half of Natural Spin Turn, or Closed Impetus), think of extending the nose past the left elbow
- In Natural turning figures going backwards, the body turns first, and the head stays behind
- In Reverse turning figures going backwards, the head starts and leads the turn. Otherwise, after the turn, the body will be too straight. Examples: Double Reverse Spin.
- When there is body tilt, the body sways, but the head stays still. (e.g. Basic Weave with Promenade Finish.)
