Threshold provides support to women with a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, self-harm, post-traumatic stress, chronic low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, parenting issues, birth trauma and perinatal depression. Many of the women have past or current experience of abuse or violence; most living on low incomes. Threshold believe that women-only services deliver better outcomes for women, which have wider societal and economic impacts. Increased confidence and holistic support offered enables women to better support their selves, their families and improve outcomes for their children.
Starting in April for an initial three month period, yoga teacher Sarah Pailthrope will deliver classes to users of Threshold Women’s Services.
Sarah started practicing yoga in 2006, graduating from the 2 year, 500 hour Vajrasati Teacher Training in May 2015. Before teaching yoga, she was a support worker for asylum seekers and refugees, until around the time of graduating, she decided to take a leap and become a full time yoga teacher. Since then, Sarah has had the privilege of teaching many different people from all walks of life. She believes in bringing the benefits of yoga to the whole community and has been fortunate enough to have had many opportunities to do so.
