So no Primary but I remembered Krishnamacharya's Video from when he was fifty. I had thought about being in Mysore for this birthday, going up into the hills to do the same routine.
Manju in Crete next month instead.
Krishnamacharya's inversions here pretty much just as I leaned them from Ramaswami ( see resource page) on his Vinyasa krama course this time three years ago even though Krishnamacharya was in Mysore at the time and teaching the young Pattabhi Jois (see the previous Pattabhi Jois Resource page)
Highly recommended day out in summer. The palace is nice, interesting to visit of course but it's the gardens that make it. You can just visit them for four or five pounds on their own but on a hot summer's day it's nice to be able to get out of the sun for an hour at a time and pop into the cool rooms of one of the palace wings before heading back out to one of the other gardens.

Nice to get there or come back by river too- We came back to Ricmond by boat, 8 quid each, took about an hour and a half but there's a faster boat that takes and hour for ten.
|to or from Hampton court (we came back to Richmond )|

Best part of the day, nice springy lawns reminded me a little of the Tuileries in Paris , will be going there to read for the day before summer's over ( maze was a bit of a disappoint though, smaller than I remember as a kid)
