Not sure if this will be much use to you, as I'm not training in Yoshinkan, but at the Aikikai dojo I train at here in Japan, we're taught to keep the heels of both feet slightly off the mat at all times. The way it was explained to me was that one should think of their heels as being off the mat just enough for a piece of paper to be able to slide underneath. Needless to say, it's quite difficult.
