Katrina Ji (Artistic Director / Owner of Skin Deep Dance Studio) had the opportunity to spend a week with Myra during the SEEDs Teacher Certification Program. Myra is now one of Katrina's dearest mentors.
Within a few minutes of meeting Myra, you know you are in the presence of a different kind of poet, a body poet, a woman who teaches you how to enter the world in every way, using your mind, certainly, but also your heart, your soul, your rhythm. – Bliss Magazine, Winter 2005
