Melissa Herst

teacher + Coach
 

After years of a committed yoga practice, I discovered 5Rhythms in 2008 and was hooked by the way that dance gave me insights and release, but was also fun and interactive. I’ve been sweating and making up my own steps ever since. 

After years as a student, I was thrilled to be invited to join the inaugural Open Floor Movement teacher training led by Gabrielle Roth’s senior students: Andrea Juhan, Kathy Altman, Lori Salzman and Vic Cooper. These are my teachers and I’m continually blown away by the depth of their wisdom and generosity.  

In addition to teaching Open Floor Movement classes, I’m also a mind/body coach

I live in San Francisco with my husband Chad Herst and our dog Disco.
