The Goop Lab Season 1 presents Gwyneth Paltrow putting her spin on wellness as she sends her goopers to try out different techniques.
Netflix series The Goop Lab Season 1 will be released on the platform on January 24, 2020 — add it to your list now.
I had absolutely no idea that Gwyneth Paltrow runs a wellness and lifestyle company so I was a little surprised to witness a Netflix series based on various wellness topics led by the actress herself. It originally started as a lifestyle brand that launched in 2008, emailing readers weekly newsletters, providing new age advice.
The Goop Lab Season 1 is a 6-part docuseries (that can be watched in any order) that explores various wellness topics, with Gwyneth sending her goopers to experiment (and yes, they are called goopers).
The opening episode of The Goop Lab is about psychedelics — drugs that usually have negative opinions attached to them. Quick story: I once took mushrooms in Cape Cod, Massachusetts and I spent a good portion of the night talking to a trash can.
Anyway, the whole point of the goopers is that they try out different wellness techniques. The psychedelics episode shows people from various backgrounds — one man is ex-military and with the mental issues that have arrived from serving in Iraq, psychedelics work significantly on his wellbeing. The opening episode is insightful, helping people explore their inner being and understanding who they truly are. And it is entertaining watching fits, giggles, and tears. Releasing those intense emotions is wholly therapeutic.
Other episodes of The Goop Lab explore shocking the body with “snowga”, women’s sexual pleasure and energy fields. The Netflix series is a surprise little addition to the platform, shouldering up to their extensive docuseries catalog — plus it’s a good excuse to watch the famous actress execute her knowledge of the world of wellness.
If you are a spiritual person and you enjoy looking into different, varied means of wellness, then Netflix series The Goop Lab Season 1 will entertain and educate you at the same time.
