move the bar sideways while landing from jump?

When landing from a jump, does it help to push the bar left or right in order to help align board/body with the proper downwind landing? If so which direction for the bar? If I push the bar towards my front hand will that help align my board with more of a downwind landing? (On some style jumps I'd like to correct a tendancy to land too much on edge).

Pull the bar down towards either your left or right hip to turn your body so that you can land more down wind
