Golden Door was such an amazing experience... i wasn't sure what to expect and was a bit anxious being on my own for a first timer at Golden Door.
But from the get go... it was such a rewarding experience! Just the openness and the energy everyone radiated across every aspect of the program was just so encouraging! Jaye was a great Program Lead and all the support from the rest of the team was just excellent! The mix of activities where so well balanced throughout the days... i pretty much did the most I could as it was just great being in the company of people who are all about just having a bit of fun! Team sports and the dancing activities were so much fun!
The friendships formed through my stay is also beyond what I imagined, truly a valuable experience...
The Food was amazing... i didn't even crave the usual things i go for daily e.g. coffee, coke... etc. Happy with majority being vegetarian, super healthy but so scrumptuous! I'm still maintaining a relatively healthy eating habit and incorporating exercise weekly after leaving Golden Door ...have really begun to appreciate how much feeling great each day changes how you deal with things day to day!
The rooms were superb as well and the views of Hunter is just amazing... waking up for Tai Chi each day was such a treat to see the day break as we close out of the session!
It was well worth it and I would really love to make this a yearly ritual from here on...
Thank you to Golden Door and the team!!
