Driving Directions 


Bettina Rothe 


The retreat begins with dinner on Saturday, March 17th and completes with lunch on Saturday, March 24th.

The daily schedule will include early morning movement and meditation sessions, afternoon and evening sessions. It will be spacious to allow for time in nature, for silence and rest.

The Facilitators are:

Bettina Rothe

is a facilitator of conscious movement practices and community building whose passion is to ignite one's connection with self, to others and to the continuum of all life.

Her work is grounded in holistic, somatic based modalities with a strong focus on the 5Rhythms®, Gabrielle Roth's powerful movement form, mindfulness practices and leadership embodiment principles. Bettina is a licensed 5Rhythms® teacher who offers weekly group classes, individual sessions, workshops and retreats in North America and Europe.

She creates a safe and playful environment for the exploration of creativity, personal growth and heart centered intimacy. 

Scott Kelly
is a trained Aletheia Conscious Connected Breathwork Facilitator, body worker, chi gong practisioner, dancer and entrepreneur passionate about self-healing, somatics and removing barriers to accessing love as a state of being.  

He is trained in massage techniques such as Indian Head, acupressure, aromatherapy and deep tissue. His life’s mission is to work with people, create products and experiences that have a lasting effect of moving people towards health and wholeness.

ALETHEIA BREATH Journeys are an active meditation in ceremony that allows for profoundly deep healing combining a breath technique with sound healing.  Aletheia, greek word for truth or disclosure, is a prana breath technique that leads the participant to a heightened state which allows for healing and moving of stuck energy freeing the body and spirit from constraint and suffering. 

Mylène Bergeron

Mylène’s lifework deepens people’s understanding of the body, mind and breath connection. Trained as a manual therapist, she has been immersed in the field of bodywork since graduating from the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts, in 1999.

Drawing from her mindfulness practice and dedication to ‘the art of living’ Mylène developed Deep Flow in 2006. Her innovative approach aims at merging the fields of yoga, meditation, massage, and dance to open new possibilities for the client.

For the Metamorphosis Retreat, she will offer 1:1 body-reading sessions that look at how your entire life story is encoded in your body matrix. She will present subtle physical adjustments that can unwind restricting patterns and shift your structure towards a more balanced, sensible and functional position.

She will also offer private manual therapy sessions to tone your nervous system and bring you to experience a state of neutral from deep within.


“Bettina creates an authentic and sacred space where I can experience intimacy, depth and joy in coming home
to my body.”


A 5Rhythms® Movement and Conscious Breathwork Retreat at Mandala Eco Villas, El Salvador

and Mylène Bergeron (Body Alignment)

"Change can be beautiful; butterflies are the greatest proof of this."
-- Matshona Dhliwayo

This is an invitation to join us in a healing journey to undergo a process of remolding, realigning and change. Metamorphosis is a journey of transformation. It calls for us to grow into a new state of being, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Metamorphosis is a process, which involves struggle, dissolving, reimagining, revising, and flying. It is not always easy, however, when you emerge, spread your wings and begin to fly, you will have a greater appreciation for who you are and what the Infinite has called you to become.

In this 7 day exclusive retreat we will use 5Rhythms® Movement, Conscious Breathwork, Body Alignment, Meditation, Qi Gong, ritual and time in nature to guide us in our own becoming. We are held by the elements on the grounds of Mandala Eco Villas, a beachfront resort where every aspect of design was made to honour nature. The movement studio is nestled within a tropical jungle. The food we eat is exquisite and grows all around the grounds.

With its multiple volcanoes, extended coast line, black sandy beaches and open-hearted people, El Salvador has been declared by Lonely Planet “Central America's most underrated country”. (read more HERE)
