TFL stop practice!

Bloody “Transport for London” are bringing London to a grinding halt this weekend. No Circle, Met, Victoria or H&C and no Central line west of Marble Arch. It’s impossible to actually get to TLC for practice. There is alledged to be a replacement bus, but god knows how long that will take to make its way to Notting Hill, so it looks like I am stuffed, grrrrrr not happy 😦

I practised last night, whole of primary plus backbending, though again with the lack of stability on my carpet my knee was complaining bitterly about dropbacks, I gave up after 2.

So a weekend with no practice, Moon day on Sunday so stuffed there as well.


8pm home to investigate TFL’s website, it says there is a 390 bus from Euston to Notting Hill which takes 20 minutes, I can’t say I believe it, how can it crawl all the way along Oxford St and the Bayswater Road to Notting Hill in 20 minutes. Do I risk it for a practice with a teacher I know OR have another hour in bed and go to TY?

    Take the tube to the shala in Clapham North, just book beforehand. Err, since when did you ever observe moon days?!

    Well I don’t have a choice when the Shalas (AYL & YP) close for Moon day!

    Uh-oh.. if you’re feeling it in the knees, you need to make sure you drop back with straight feet and stop going too wide!! Maybe give it a rest for a feel days and practise just hanging back with really good alignment in the legs. Even if you want to go to the floor… think of it as an investment : )

    Hi Susan,

    I notice at YP with Cary’s 2 mat suggestion that my feet stay reasonably in place as I go back, even after last Sunday’s 9 dropback total my knee was fine. At home the mat moves or wrinkles up on the carpet, or if I stand on the carpet I find that there isn’t any traction to keep my feet in place and they splay out. I am not so worried about practising droping back now I can do it, I need to practice attemtping to come back up, but you cant practice coming up unless you go down to start with.

    I must have mentally received your comment this morning as I decided to wait and get assistance from the get go.
