Re: Relaxing Aiki vs Yoga.

In my limited experience: the feeling in your mind and body after keiko also differs depending on what kind of aikido and training you have been doing.

After a intensive class withs both "static" and flowing taijutsu I usually feel physically tired but always in a very positive mental state.

After a intensive hour of bukiwaza (suburi, awase-exercises, kumitachi/jo) Im mentaly drained.

After a hour of only soft flowing ki no nagare practice I usally find myself in a very pleasant and energetic mode both physically and mentaly.
