Re: learning 2 arts at the same time

I've been practicing Yoga parallel with Aikido since January and I feel it's very rewarding. As it's not a fighting art it don't think it will conflict with your Aikido. I believe it improves your balance, stamina and awareness. It also makes you more flexible and relaxed, which helps your ukemi. The breathing is a little different, in Aikido we're taught to breath into the nose and out through the mouth, in Yoga we're always breathing through our nose.
