Same with me.
I've actually found that my ability to obtain that state is a lot easier when I'm lifting and competing. I have a tendency to drift when I'm performing my yoga and tai chi. I think it has more to do with the length and amount of focus I need to put myself under. If that makes any sense?
All the best,

Tai chi, and other related practices, will allow for one to remain there longer and quite likely make the body healthier over time (a long time!).
I like getting there both ways, yoga - gymnastics - OL all get me there a bit differently.
