Now I'm not sure what you mean!
Place your elbow against your body with your arm bent (so your elbow is against the very bottom of your ribs). Imagine your elbow is pushed into your centre and accross the front of your body simultaneously. Your head will start to lean over (towards where nage would be in the technique) and your balance will be less.
