Finally one more solution is to think about what Graham said - doing some basic tai chi.
You may not need a partner to do tai chi, but you certainly need an instructor to give you feedback on posture, weighting, transitions, breathing, energy...um....just about everything. Same with weapons work, whether aikido or koryu or whathaveyou: if an instructor isn't giving you feedback regularly, even an intermediate student will have a slow "error creep" and end up doing things quite differently than taught.
