August 4th - Qi Gong/Tai Chi led by Kathleen Sakowitz
Movement from Ancient China; stretching, deep breathing, circular, meditative; increasing qi (chi) energy thru internal energy flow unblocking and balancing qi; connecting mind, body and spirit always.
August 11th - Calm, Cool + Collected: Midsummer Yoga
Join trauma-informed teacher, Lauren Turner, for a yoga class designed to help you “chill out” a bit in the peak of the summer. The 60 minute practice will bring together easy, flowing, wrist-friendly and restorative postures to unwind the body, breathing techniques (Pranayama) to help calm the nervous system, and guided meditation in savasana to help you feel more centered. Techniques are inspired by Ayruvedic wisdom of helping to balance the fiery parts of ourselves in the midst of summer heat.

All are welcome to join for a slow, meditative, guided walk around the Open Spirit grounds and gardens. Use all your senses to deepen your connection to both your inner and outer worlds, and emerge refreshed and peaceful.

Framingham: City of Dreams
Curated and Produced by Claudia Ruiz Gustafson
Honoring the elders interview project
We are very excited to be joining Transition Framingham in this project.
The goal of this project is to conduct interviews with Framingham resident elders 65+ to capture stories from an earlier time when energy usage was lower and people had different life skills. By learning from the past, we can learn lost skills to help guide us forward.
This project provides a great opportunity to connect with someone and deepen your relationship to them and to the Framingham community.
