About this trip

Gather all the things you need to nourish YOU. This retreat will be guided by Yoga Instructors Marybeth Donahoe and Jenna Minnes with the intention to relax and harmonize your nervous system. Breathe in the vitality of the Jungle as we practice movement as medicine, through yoga, breath work, meditation, acupuncture, myofascial release and more. Let the ocean lapping on the shore lull you to sleep and restore balance back to your mind and body. Reconnect to your pure radiant nature while reconnecting with the natural world around you through nutritious meals and  local conversation programs.



What does Gather Mean

When we gather it is in ceremony, savoring the richness of life and each other, together we recognize our own gifts, we share our light, we spread more love, compassion, and kindness. Sometimes we have to gather ourselves - we pick up the pieces of ourselves when we are broken, garnering ourselves back to our highest form of Self. When we gather we create a safe container for us to learn, share vulnerably, to truly heal through holding space and seeing one another as the love and light in which we are. 

Gather Facilitator: Marybeth Donahoe

I believe that we are all born balanced in our center, we get imbalanced and need to reclaim ourselves over and over through life. Life is a balancing act on a meandering path, that sometimes leads us astray. I am here to guide you back to your path. Whether you need assistance in healing chronic or acute injuries or  help to reconnect to your purpose, I am here to be the light of awareness and share my wisdom, tools, and healing practices with you.


I started my path of healing over 17 years ago. Since then I have dedicated my life’s purpose (dharma) to bettering myself, and assisting others in their transformational journey. I am dedicated to always learning new techniques to be of service in the best way possible. I am forever a student, and forever a teacher. The wisdom I obtain is meant to be shared, and taught so that others can be self sufficient and grow on their own. I am merely a spark, a guide, a compass to help point you back towards your true radiance. 


I teach many different healing modalities including, meditation, movement therapy, therapeutic myofascial release, yin yoga, vinyasa yoga, haha yoga, body awareness counseling, rehabilitation to body imbalances, written healing practices, personalized programs based on my clients needs.

Gather Facilitator: Jenna Minnes

 The gifts of being human are expressed through personal expansion and collective healing. Given the opportunity to be still enough, our practice supports us through all experiences of life, and help us remember our own divinity.


Yoga for me shows itself everywhere. We can understand our human nature by observing the elements of the earth, our food, our environment, our thoughts, bodies and breath. These elements inspire me on a daily basis, and bring me to teaching as a way of self-learning.


The path has lead me to embrace the teachings of Yin, Vinyasa, Hatha, Ayurveda and Tantric Yoga. I integrate my experience as a Bodyworker and Structural Integration practitioner by understanding the most supportive alignment for each individual. You will find my classes as an exploration of energies via the body while getting curious about our mind and emotions with the intention of breaking free of patterns and trauma. Tantric Vinyasa is my primary expression of teaching, which honors all paths of yoga and lifestyle that support us in expressing our personal truth. The culmination of over 1,000 hours of training have inspired me to become ERYT-500 and I am thrilled to hold my second teacher training in the near future.
