Thanks Lynn for your thoughtful column, when I train I'm on the mat with my mind and body, it is not possible otherwise,when I work I'm there with my mind and body but when I'm walking I can think of other things meanwhile, maybe then it doesn't be shugyo, I don't know, I didn't know that word before.
IMHO, if you are training with the body and mind present then I would consider that mindful training: Shugyo.

Remember that the often consider Aikido training in body and mind unification.

Thanks for reading and responding.
