    Mind and body working together as they should do.

    Re yoga - definitely gives mind and body awareness if you don't get caught in the trap of having to perform. It also provides what Danny talked about earlier with the Alexander technique - practice in staying with the unfamiliar present (which is why those variants of yoga where you don't hold the stretch don't make any sense at all, except as regimented narcissism) rather than slinking back to the familiar ways of doing things. Sticking with discomfort, and thinking and feeling about what discomfort means to you, until it becomes tolerable or starts to dissolve.

    I'm guessing that your poetry gig, being asked to write something on the spot based on a theme given to you by someone else, gives some of the same benefits of pushing you into unfamiliarity and enabling you to stick with it? I'd be interested to hear about that - obvious links on all sides with the improvisation discussion we were having a while back too
