“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”
~ Khalil Gibran
You doing your life’s work is what the world needs most.
- release stress, tension, limiting beliefs & anxiety
- experience the vast spaciousness + wisdom within you
- gain greater clarity + insight into what consciously & unconsciously drives you
- embrace the process of your own unfolding
- cultivate a healthier, more compassionate relationship with yourself
- mentally, emotionally and physically heal from the inside out
It is my life’s purpose to help you fall in love with who you truly are so you can actualize your own dharma, or your unique work in the world. If you are willing to look within, ready to grow and make life affirming change, this work is for you.
When we work together, you can expect to feel the warm embrace of being truly seen and cared for in a judgment free, safe space. You are here on PURPOSE with Purpose. You have something magical and expressly you to offer that is part of what compels the universe to expand in waves of rapture. Let’s get down to the work of revealing and empowering your authentic SHINE! I can guarantee I’ll be in awe of you, and you’ll probably find you are surprised & touched by how much more clearly you can see, love and appreciate yourself.
Private sessions are great for times when you:
- find yourself in a transitional period
- are struggling with limiting beliefs or behavior patterns
- crave greater insight & self-awareness
- are dealing with current and/or past trauma
- need support embracing the wisdom of your challenging experiences
- are feeling a loss of direction or purpose
- want to foster a greater connection with your body wisdom
- want to access and step into your power
- want to deepen your spiritual connection (supports all traditions)
- need a loving reminder of how precious and essential you are
What is it that stirs your heart to burst out in a wild and unabashed “YeeeesssSSS!!!!!”? My job is to howl “YES!” right alongside you.
I am a passionate, committed, transformational alley on a soul driven mission to embody and actualize love in the universe. I can’t wait to meet you!
by Oriah Mountain Dreamer, (excerpts)*
It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing…
I want to know if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it…
I want to know if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your
fingers and toes…
I want to know if you will stand
in the center of the fire
and not shrink back…

So glad I came to your class! The hot stones were incredibly relaxing, especially after a wonderful, invigorating, asana class. The hot stone therapy put me right in my body and I left your class feeling incredible… Thanks again
I feel I am in direct communication with my soul everyday, however never have I had the experience of hearing its voice so clearly and with such clarity as I did with you. It has brought such certainty and powerful grounding to my life where once my guide had been trust and faith… now I move forward with confidence and strength feeling the conviction of my path in this world. The certainty that this is what I came to this world to do. And now, in the beautiful way that it does, the Universe has already begun to unfold with the exact right people, opportunities and syncronicities necessary to fulfill this purpose. Thank you Artemisia for being a vessel of truth and a light in the darkness. Wisdom is such a powerful tool, and you wield it with such Grace and humility!
Artemisia’s session was a profoundly warm event. Getting to be one on one with an amazing healing woman was such a good experience. Her energy immediately soothed and warmed my heart and brought me into a safe space. Through her visions, she revealed myself to me. There are certain images and messages that the heart is trying to send and Artemisia listens. Skeptics beware, she will turn you upside down. The images and dialogue shared with Artemisia has been continually helping me heal and figure out my life path since our first session. A beautiful experience, from a wise healing lady. I highly recommend this. It’s hard to describe without experiencing it for yourself.
Artemisia’s strong, nurturing presence facilitated powerful healing experiences for me in the Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy sessions we shared. She perfectly balances intuitive and technical knowledge of yoga, while holding space for my own inner process to take place. Very compassionate, joyful, and authentic, highly recommended.
I started to take Artemisia’s classes in the midst of my last stressful semester at Humboldt State University and I couldn’t have chosen a better time (except SOONER). The welcoming and encouraging atmosphere of the class coupled with the radiant beauty (inside and out) and positivity that seemed to nearly explode out of Artemisia has cultivated feelings inside of me that I had never experienced before. I would leave class literally glowing. After weeks, not only did my physical body feel amazing (in great shape feeling strong and able) but my attitude and outlook on myself, those around me, and the world was also transforming. In one of the first classes I took, she said to us, “The one you’re looking for is the one who is looking.” That statement has changed my life and has taught me that I am complete in every single way and I have everything I need inside of me to do whatever it is I need to do in life. Artemisia’s classes always have underlying messages that help immensely with everyday life situations. Her class is more than a workout for your body, it is an uplifting experience that inspires you to delve into your mind and spirit. Artemisia is one of the most amazing human beings I have ever met, just thinking about her awesomeness brightens my day and reminds me of all the things she has taught me through her yoga classes.
I felt as if I was being cradled in the womb in candlelite hot stone yoga. It was the best experience I’ve had in a yoga studio.
That was the most exciting hour and a half of my life! Thank you for guiding me to my heart. It feels so amazing!! Your gift is undeniable and I wish everyone I love could be blessed by it. Thank you for opening yourself to be a vessel for the cosmic communication that is all around us and inside us. xoxoxo
Artemisia is amazing. She brings her strong open heart to each session. She exudes love and patience and seeks to find and establish connection with everyone she meets. I heartily recommend her services to anyone wanting a deeper connection with themselves.
Finding words to relate my experience with Artemisia is like trying to describe a dream or an intense psychedelic experience. It’s almost beyond words. She was able to look inside me, into the dark corners of my heart and shine some light in areas that I’d been overlooking. I felt them, I knew of their presence but for one reason or another I had my blinders up. At the time I was feeling sort of hung up in my spiritual practice. It’s like I was ready for the next step, but wasn’t sure what that was. In the end what we uncovered was that I was simply trying too hard. Studying and watching the clock when what I really needed was to let go, to trust in my heart, my intuitions and the wisdom that I’ve acquired in this life and in lives past. Her insight and her ability to transcribe that insight is truly graceful, heartfelt and inspiring. I want to share an intimate part of my experience now, that it may benefit you on your journey through life. My Sankulpa or Intention; “I see only beauty in my surroundings and it is my quiet strength which nourishes me and holds up the universe.” Thank you Artemisia! Much Love!
Artemisia is an artist in her craft. From the moment we began our journey I felt immense tenderness, support and understanding from her. In her gentle way she gave me permission to surrender to the process, allowing me to truly open my heart and see myself clearly. Peeling away the layers one at a time, she encouraged vulnerability and honesty from me in a way I had not experienced in long time. The connection I felt to my most authentic self was so palpable, I now feel like I have a tangible place inside myself to live from as I walk my path, and a place to return to if I lose my way. Her insight into my process was genuine and inspired coming from a place of deep listening. In her presence, I was able to uncover truths that I had been neglecting, allowing me to move forward with my life in a more aware, informed and awakened state. This experience for me was PRICELESS! Thank you Artemisia!
I did not know what to expect when Maya Cooper asked me if I would participate in a heart chakra reading with Artemisia… She is nothing short of mind blowing! Her insight is breathtaking. She has the ability to see my true self; the embodiment my greatest potentials. She heard the call of my destiny, and provided practical suggestions to help me tune into my wisdom. She looked deeply into parts of myself that live in the realm of spirit and imagination, empowering me to embrace things I was afraid of. Fear was blocking my development as an individual. She confirmed visions and dreams I have with such great accuracy! Having that confirmation fills me with courage. Now more than ever, I feel the courage to live the light of my personal truth. Her affirmation is such a gift! To illuminate hidden aspects of my personality that desperately want to emerge; she helped me to see my pathway so clearly. She is very in touch with the invisible and tangible realms of existence.
Artemisia teaches her yoga classes from the heart. She artfully fuses her knowledge, skill and love of yoga with her creative and poetic nature. I always come out of her classes feeling happier, lighter and inspired. Inspired to try harder at my poses and then apply them outside of the studio. I am so lucky to have stumbled into her classes, I am hooked!
Artemisia Shines like a star in love with light itself! Her professionalism is unwavering yet she is friendly, warm and open. Any doubts that one has within the first few minutes of sitting down with her will quickly dissipate as she guides the client through centering into a sacred place where healing naturally flows. My awareness was brought into alignment with highest intentional self discovery as she gently led me towards the inquiry necessary to open the right doors and ask the right questions. She has the natural gift of intuitive healing from roots to sky and back again. I felt like we created a work of art worthy of hanging in an ancient museum of healing works. She reminded me that everything is within us to become what our dreams wish to make true. Any person seeking to feel loving empowerment and shine with powerful purpose should come see Artemisia. After only a few minutes of talking together, Artemisia intuitively began seeing where my areas of healing needed to happen and yet she patiently allows the client to unravel the mysteries themselves for maximum growth. The powerful result is lasting and enlightening self awareness buoyed by a loving boost of confident affirmation the client takes away to apply to their everyday life. On top of her soundly unwavering methodology employed to heal, she embodies a magically cultivated spirit of loving kind power that penetrates the soul of one who is ready for growth. Artemsia walks the walk and I don’t just recommend her healing sessions, I sing her praises as healer, guide and yogini extroardinaire because everything I have seen from her has, literally, changed my life. Everyone deserves to make contact with this amazing woman and become a little bit more amazing themselves.
I cant imagine what I experienced during that hour and a half to be anything like what another may experience, so without going into details might be able to summarize my experience by saying: if there were other times in my life where I felt so understood, so accepted, so ‘seen’ for what I know is in me, I cannot, at the time of this writing, recall, and there seems to be something fulfilling to having been acknowledged in such a way.
Resting in the deep peace brought on by a powerful soul retrieval that occurred in my first Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy session with Artemisia Shine. What a beautiful healer you are! Thank you a million times for holding such a full loving space and lending your skill and gifts to my healing process. This session was amazing, and you have such a natural way of facilitating and witnessing. I am so relaxed in my self. Thank you, we did great work together. Namaste. I love you.
