Gwyneth Paltrow Excitedly Shares her First GOOP Escape Retreat Experience

Gwyneth Paltrow could not contain her excitement about the first ever GOOP Escape retreat held at the new rustic but luxurious resort called Blackberry Mountain in Tennessee, a sister resort to the famous Blackberry Farm.

The actress shared about the event on her Instagram account, calling the experience a ‘magical time’ and even praised the resort, calling it one of the nicest properties she has ever been to.  The weekend retreat was composed of activities involving outdoor adventures, wellness, a special dinner that was prepared by chef Richard Blais, and the musical stylings of musician Jessie Baylin.

The 46-year-old actress was photographed participating in one of the activities during the retreat, which was an intense workout routine where she was suspended upside down.  We can only assume that’s part of the wellness program that can be beneficial to the body, no matter how difficult it appears to be.

The location itself is already refreshing to the soul, which was the reason why Paltrow could not help but mention in her post about a secret swing she discovered in the middle of the woods.  Although the resort uses 5,200 acres of the Great Smoky Mountains, it has also dedicated 2,800 acres of it to help land conservation.  Despite being new, people are already raving about the place’s world-renowned hospitality.

The event happened at the same time as Paltrow’s latest movie, Avengers: Endgame was breaking box office records. As we all know, the actress played Pepper Potts in the film, who is Tony Stark/Iron Man’s assistant-turned-girlfriend. It is truly a great time for Paltrow, who recently tied the knot with producer Brad Falchuk.

GOOP is a lifestyle newsletter that Paltrow started 2008, which eventually became a web-based company.  Not long after, it became an e-commerce business, and then it was able to start pop-up shops, create a printed magazine, and it even began hosting wellness summits and retreats like this one.
