Re: Anybody doing yoga?

There was a similar thread about four years ago, which I posted to.

Basically I believe that there are some traditions of yoga which are very helpful to aikido, but others which are not so directly useful, even though (with an experienced and skilful teacher) they have plenty to offer in other ways. My own opinion is that poor yoga practice can hinder development of aiki skills.

Since then I have started practising Dan Harden's postural drills, which complement and reinforce what I am doing in my yoga practice.
