Wellness space opens in Oregon


The Oregon Area of Commerce welcomed Locus Coworking and Wellness Space to 217 W. Washington St. in Oregon with a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Jan. 22.

Locus is the very first wellness coworking space in our area.

Locus Coworking and Wellness Space's mission is to curate a wellness-oriented experience for the new workforce of digital professionals, entrepreneurs, and creatives who value flexibility, freedom, focus, and mental and physical well-being. 

At Locus you can reserve a desk in this beautiful space several different ways. Some options are by one, five, 10 or 20 day reservations. Member plus subscription includes a dedicated desk, and several great membership perks and discounts with partnering local businesses. Owner Elizabeth Priller offers multiple workshops that are mainly centered around men and women's health and wellness.

Hours are Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. but can be available at other times if requested.

Priller has been a registered nurse for more than 20 years. Her focus in the past was always on the "post problem." She said she has since realized that there's so much that can be done for people's health by focusing on illness and sick care related to stress. Now her focus is on prevention with multimodality practices such as nutrition, sleep, meditation, mindful movement, and helping others thrive in life.

Priller is a certified health coach, registered yoga teacher with yoga alliance, and certified ayurveda and meditation specialist. She also currently teaches Anatomy for Information Technology at Highland Community College in Freeport.
