May – June at Trillium

As the New York sheltering at home requirement continues for the foreseeable future, we are doing our best to adapt to the challenges of life during the pandemic. We will continue to monitor the public health recommendations about the safety of re-opening. We look forward to the day we can open our doors and be together in person. In the meantime, we invite you to take advantage of our virtual classes, offered by our teachers to support you and to keep connected. 

Trillium Healing Arts practitioners have adapted their practices to home, using phone, Zoom, and other electronic media to serve their clients. As the local economy gradually opens over the next months, we anticipate one on one Healing Arts to return. We will comply with health and safety guidelines, per CDC and NYS Department of Health, for practitioners and clients.

Trillium teachers have created classes and offerings on a Face Book and Zoom. The Trillium Board of Directors has decided to continue to offer classes for free as long as our in person classes are not available. We have made this decision because we want everyone to have access without a financial barrier. As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, we welcome your donations. If you are able, please consider sending a Community Yoga, $5 – $10, donation per class. You may either send a check to Trillium Wellness Center, 42 1/2 Elm Street, Potsdam, NY, or use your credit/debit card at our web store

For students who have previously purchased a class card, please be assured that they will be honored once Trillium re-opens. 

Here is our schedule of live class. Zoom classes are interactive and are not recorded. FB page classes are available live at the times noted below and recordings are available any time on the Trillium FB page.

Just For You

While our classes are on hiatus, and most of us are house bound, we plan to post a variety of meditations and yoga classes for you to enjoy. We hope these offerings will keep you connected to your Trillium community and will keep us connected to you. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email me, theyognp@gmail.com. Namaste, Terry de la Vega

The first is a Yoga Nidra/Sound Bath, recorded at Trillium. Find a quiet time and place, for about a half an hour. You may lie down on the floor, supported with blankets and pillow, or you may sit in a comfortable reclining chair. Make yourself comfortable and enjoy.

On Monday, March 16, the Trillium board took the decision to suspend classes and workshops for the next three weeks. We took this action in order to comply with the current emergency safety measures taken by Gov. Cuomo. Time is of the essence to contain the coronavirus. If closing Trillium can help stop the spread of the virus, we believe it is the right thing to do.

Individuals may continue to seek Healing Arts services, such as massage, Reiki, and counseling. Individual practitioners are able to clean as necessary between clients. Everyone must wash their hands before and after client contact. Clients are encouraged to wash their hands as well.

We plan to post some videos for your personal practice and to keep in touch virtually. Look for our offerings over the next few days. 

Updates will be posted here and on our FB page. Please check back regularly. OK, everybody, be well, and enjoy this time of nowhere to go, nothing to do. 

Namaste,
Trillium Wellness Center Board of Directors
