What is your favorite summer memory? Close your eyes and think back — where were you and who was with you? How old were you? Were you the fastest in the neighborhood at chasing down the ice cream man? Did you help your parents plant a flower or vegetable garden? Maybe you remember spending lazy days by the lake, or pool, passing the deep-end test or your first time going off the high dive.

Boston’s Pools Opening Soon for Summer

Kids with the Gregg House day care center located in Lynn, enjoy their field trip to Boston and the Christian Science Center Plaza's fountain.

Soon, you’ll be able to cool down in a city pool any day of the week.

The city announced on Monday that Boston’s 10 Centers for Youth and Families (BCYF) city swimming pools and one city beach will stay open every day of the week starting on June 29. 

In addition to the 10 pools open seven days a week, all of the city’s pools are open on Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. During the week, pool hours vary depending on location. 

Luckily for South Enders, one pool that will remain open all week is the South End’s BCYF Blackstone pool, located on 50 West Brookline St.

This year marks the second in a row the city has decided to open its pools early. 

“With the warm weather on its way, we want our residents to be able to beat the heat seven days a week,” Mayor Tom Menino said. “We have amazing facilities in the city, and I encourage all our families to take advantage of them.” read more

10 Tips for Adjusting to Heated Yoga Classes in Summer

Do this stretch first thing!

I’ve been practicing heated yoga for 13 years. I’ve mixed in other styles as well, including those that don’t involve heat, and I can say I enjoy both and find both effective.

However, I will admit that once it starts to get hot outside, I need to make adjustments in my practice so I can practice comfortably in a heated class.

In the past few weeks, the weather here in Boston has started to shift to warmer temperatures. With that, as expected, I’ve had an increase in questions from students about how to practice safely in a heated studio. They’ve also had some questions about experiences in their body that they don’t normally feel when it’s cold out.

If you’re practicing heated yoga in the warmer summer months, here are 10 tips to help you adjust safely:

1. The water you drink before class is just as important as drinking water after class. Many of us don’t think about additional hydration in the summer months and keep our same routine of liquid intake and then hop into the hot studio. In the warmer months, with increased sweating even before you arrive, you need to replace that hydration before you start class. read more

Summer Reading Kicks Off at Boston Libraries

Summer reading at Boston Public Library offers programs and activities designed to inspire children’s creativity and imagination. The theme for 2013 is “Dig into Reading” for children up to age 12. Programs begin in June. 

Boston Public Library is dedicated to providing educational programming for youth during summer months, helping keep children engaged in reading and in their communities while out of school. Summer reading programs are designed for children to have positive learning experiences and to encourage reading as a lifelong habit.

“This summer’s programming is sure to excite children with the varied offerings, which include everything from science and math programs to themed story times and garden crafts,” said Jessi Snow, youth services coordinator for the Boston Public Library. 

Summer reading is packed with free, fun activities for children and families. Boston Public Library locations will be offering visits from Dr. Can-Do Science, the New England Aquarium and the Museum of Science. The summer schedule includes Countdown to Kindergarten celebrations as well as visits from the ReadBoston Storymobile and the annual Read Your Way to Fenway essay contest. read more
