learning 2 arts at the same time

I have a question regarding learning aikido and another martial art at the same time. I'm fairly new to aikido and have never studied any other martial art but I'm thinking about possibly studing Kendo or something else. Part of my decision would be base on the schedule of the other discipline. I'd try to find a dojo that has classes that don't conflict with my aikido classes.

Would learning 2 things at the same time be mutually beneficial or would I get confused? Would it matter at all? Does it matter what kind of dicipline? I was also thinking about yoga instead for the stretching, flexibility and relaxation/stress relief benefits it teaches. To my mind, that would help my aikido practice a lot.
