In this episode:
In this episode, Cori Myka shares how her life-long passion for swimming has guided her life’s work. As a young girl, Cori found a confidence, contentment, and a sense of belonging in the pool. As an instructor of adults, she’s grown to admire her students’ courageous efforts to face their fears, both in and out of the water. Cori talks about empowering her students to understand the stages of panic and to trust themselves to know what to do because, she believes, they are already perfect and whole inside.
About Cori Myka:
Cori started her swim teaching career at the young age of 14, when she volunteered at a local pool in her native Southern California community. In 1999, she co-founded Orca Swim School, together with her husband Bruce. In 2004 she was thrilled to work with Melon Dash to learn Miracle Swimming for adults. Cori became one of the first people certified to teach this breakthrough method of swim instruction. It has shaped the focus of her business and ignited her passion for teaching adults to swim, especially those with a fear of water. This teaching method became so important that the focus changed to include teaching others how to use Miracle Swimming. She began working with Melon to teach new instructors, and has taught her own staff to use Miracle Swimming, as well.
