Welcome ! I'm so happy you're here.

WHO

Hi ! I’m Dorry Golden – a holistic health coach & yoga teacher, currently living in a picturesque surf town in Western Australia with my passionate partner, practicing yoga at the beach, playing in the crystal clear ocean every day, watching the sun set each night, and growing 90% of our food on an organic farm. This is my version of paradise. I wake up in the morning thinking, “Is this really my life ??”

BUT ! Yes, there’s a but…

WHAT

This is NOT some self-congratulatory attempt to sell you my “perfect life” because if there’s one thing I’ve learned in my journey it’s that perfection is an illusion and life will always have challenges no matter the circumstances.

This IS my desire to share with you that it’s possible to positively + radically change every area of your life in ways you might not even be able to begin to imagine (yet !)… and manage life’s inevitable challenges with more ease, grace, and humor…

WHY

Because if you'd shown me a snapshot of my life today when I was laid off from my advertising job in Dallas, Texas at the age of 25...

or when I felt trapped in the miserable prison of restrictive eating...

or being diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism...

or losing my menstrual cycle for a year...

discovering debilitating sensitivities & intolerances to gluten, grains, and dairy...

racking up debt to pay for medical bills...

having a miscarriage...

and getting divorced...

I definitely would NOT have believed it was possible !

HOW

So how did I transition from a dark, desperate place of continual angst, frustration, and grasping for the things I thought were supposed to make me happy – to starting my own consulting business, healing my gut, balancing my thyroid, travelling around Europe and SE Asia for 2 years as a digital nomad, and attracting a beautifully aligned partner who teaches me every day, encourages my growth, and loves me for me ?!

Intention + courage + commitment to change.

Through a series of accelerated, transformative experiences and encounters with supportive, gifted teachers and guides, my life began to shift in significant ways. This process was immensely inspired by becoming a certified Health Coach at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2011, while simultaneously working on the Social Media team at their offices in NYC.

As I learned more about the components of holistic health, and how each one directly related to an area of my life I was longing to improve, I began to grow a deeper love for myself – listening to my intuition, increasing my courage, and breaking through layers of fear to make decisions that I never would have even considered (or known were options) before.

If I can go from years of wanting to cry or die or counting down the minutes of the day so I could just fall asleep, to drastically improving my health, attracting people and opportunities in alignment with my newfound passions, and waking up each morning bursting with joy + gratitude for the day ahead – you can, too. I’ll show you how !
