When you're walking on the side of the road your body is perpendicular to the ground and you have full control of your movements
When you're riding down a hill it's the same principle, your body has to be perpendicular to the ground to maintain control

You should be initiating your turns with your front foot and it'll feel like you're leaning down the hill when you're actually just squaring up to the surface you're riding.
Snowolf has a very good explanation on the specifics of how this is done.
