Melissa is a mover, fascinated by the interplay between perception and what is possible. She first experienced a 5Rhythms class in 2009. She trusts deeply in the liberating and creative power of moving through whatever arises and is intimately informed by the cosmology of the 5Rhythms. She leads intuitively, respecting the uniqueness of each individual and the gifts of the ever-changing moment. She invites you to dance boldly, to physicalize your full expression, to trust the movement (regardless of how it looks) and to cultivate curiosity around what is unfolding in the present. Melissa is a 5Rhythms Sweat Spaceholder, currently working towards becoming an accredited teacher. She is mentored by her beloved teachers and friends, Visudha de los Santos and Chloe Goodwin.
