I Got Goop’d: Inside Canada’s First In Goop Health Summit
Held in the ridiculously gorgeous
Stanley Park Pavilion, the summit was part speaker series (guests included volleyball icon Gabrielle Reece and
Dr. Alejandro Junger, endorser of coffee enemas and detox cleanses) and part spa day (there were yoga sessions, facial tutorials, and “breath work”). The breath work — so not my jam — involved panting to the beat of an instrumental number with our arms uplifted for two minutes. It was supposed to help us “show up,” but I found it embarrassing and had to fight back giggles. The facial lesson — definitely my jam — involved a very bossy, very sarcastic British facialist named
Anastasia Achilleos demonstrating a vigorous massage technique to decrease puffiness and increase glowiness — which it did.
