Keep the arms locked straight. Your lower body should be in 'chair sitting' form.. more or less.
When you feel the front end dropping, thats when you poke your butt back to counter act.
When you feel too far back, almost looping out, bend your knees to bing weight forward to counter act.

And it just becomes a fight between those two basic motions. Longer distances require more frequent adjusting throughout. It's all about finding the sweet spot, and fighting to stay on the sweet spot. Just try not to over compensate. Tiny imbalances require only small adjustments. Overdoing it will make you lose the balance point.

FREE not under the control or in the power of another; able to act or be done as one wishes
STYLE a particular, distinctive, or characteristic mode of action or manner of acting

Oh and something else I balance way better when I focus on something in the distance and not the handlebars or the bike. Easier to feel the balance point when your eyes aren't trying to find it

PRACTICE A LOT.

When you got places, manual on the way. Best way to get good is to do it a lot.
