Artemisia is one of those beings who is very adept at surrendering and allowing these wise energies to take shape and meaning though her with ease. Artemisia effortlessly feels through the silky stands of colors, words, images, and experiences and gently combs them into form. She honors them and then begins giving them a true expression.

She is non-judgmental and without expectation and that grants her access to a fuller pallet of what is in the moment with us. Artemisia holds all of what is available to her in equal respect and lets it shine and share.

As she reads, she weaves and mends, pets and strokes, loves and cares for the gathering energies. She is re-patterning the person she is reading for. It is healing to be seen without judgment, to have your tender energy witnessed and handled with care and shared back with you. She is watering the thirsty plant of her client’s deep heart. I see them perk up, sit straighter, open their hearts more, align with their greater truth, fall more in love with themselves.

After a session with Artemisia you can walk away feeling like you are a big Yes! Yes! I am beautiful. Yes! I am contributing to the world. Yes! It is good to be me. Yes! It is good to shine. Isn’t that what the world needs more of? Each of us being in the fuller Yes! of who we 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!


love.

My heart opening session with Artemisia was like looking into a mirror, stretching forward and backward into eternity. Hearing her guide me through my own heart was a journey through multiple worlds and times, revealing to me a version of myself I'd forgotten but so desperately wanted to know. Artemisia was able to gently remind me of my true essence and to open my eyes to aspects of myself I was ignoring but that held incredible strength. She listened with grace and compassion to what I shared then, in-turn, reflected powerful insights and changes of perspective. I walked away with a feeling of expansion and a renewed sense of purpose. Her words and encouragement have extended far beyond our 90 minutes together.

The Invitation

by Oriah Mountain Dreamer, (excerpts)*OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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
with me
and not shrink back…

Healing for me is about re-establishing a relationship with any part that is at dis-ease. Artemisia’s heart readings are one of the most affective practices I am utilizing to evoke this personal relationship. The very words spoken in our sessions are now coming to life in this new series. She has helped me literally take my heart and throw it onto a canvas. Through this work, I am seeing my heart for what it truly is, divine. This process is a personal one, but I have great hopes of it inspiring others to explore and connect with their own heat space. I am grateful to have such a powerful healer by my side.

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.

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

It was a cloudy morning as I strolled in to meet Artemisia for my heart opening session. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but as is usually the case when I see Artemisia, I had no problem being confused, lost, and vulnerable; and as she hinted to ahead of time, she prefers her clients that way.

I was greeted with a warm, genuine smile, and was asked to make myself comfortable as she quickly prepared some tea. She then sat before me, and began. I said almost nothing the entire session, but looked on with tears in my eyes as she described what she saw within me.

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.

We finished my session with me lying down; tears welling with my emotions laid bare. Artemisia patted my heart as she asked me what would help me to find comfort and nourishment. I told her a salmon dinner and yoga in the sun, then we said goodbye, I walked out to my bike, and rode off to buy some salmon as the last clouds drifted south, leaving a beautiful blue sky and a bright, sun-shiny day.

It is great to be in Artemisia's presence- she is strong and confident and I feel like I am in good hands with her. I trust her advice and her knowledge of yoga. I know I had a unique yoga session and I can say it was exactly what I hoped for. I wanted to clear up some alignment questions and she did that. Artemisia helped me correct some things and helped me to more fully and beautifully express myself in poses. She also added in some great tips for assisting/adjusting students!

Sarah Trombley, Yoga Teacher

This session was bountiful in meaning, love & infinite experience. I received a clear pathway to the expansion of the Universe and the wholeness of all that is. What really worked was the energy - the space that Artemisia creates and radiates around her. My body-mind + soul felt at ease and receptive to this experience. The love and healing Artemisia shares with others - in turn - is radiated + expanded far beyond our comprehension.

The first time I experienced yoga with Artemisia, it was outside on a beautiful warm and sunny Sunday morning. Her class was a great combination of mediation and physical release, challenging yet surprisingly calming for the soul. She is incredibly in-tune with the participants, offering careful guidance to better the yoga experience.
Artemisia's infectious smile and positive energy left me with an inner balance and peace that you can't help but to take with you throughout your day.

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!

She is nothing short of mind blowing! Her insight is breathtaking. She has the ability to see my true self; the embodiment of 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 Shine's gift to Yoga is like the Sun's gift to this planet: Energizing, Revitalizing, Empowering, and Enlightening! The way she teaches class is like no other. By harmonizing all five senses, she guides you easily into an altered awareness. She creates a sacred space, where it is much easier to go deep into inner focus and joyous restoration. Meanwhile. her compete immersion into this collective atmosphere guides the classe’s focus towards challenging themselves, but with compassionate fortitude and loving determination.
My favorite part of this class is when she gives us a reading to contemplate after 30 minutes of the best, most healing Savasana, thanks to the additional sound healing, aroma therapy, hot stones, and massage. Her commitment and dedication towards ensuring the class is healing mind, body, soul, and heart is truly remarkable leaving you feeling a more beautiful you.
I highly recommend this class to anyone who has never experienced a transcendental yoga class before, cause this one's sure to do it! Even experienced yogis will find a spice of rare innovation that’s touching and warm. This is one class that will always be remembered.
This woman is certainly a healer and it just takes her smile to see that.

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 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 heart opening was powerful and accurate. The visions she saw have since taken place and I am so happy to have the feelings of gratification and confirmation I currently have. I highly recommend visiting the talented and gifted Artemisia for any clarifications you may want about your life's purpose, your spiritual path, and what your heart is truly yearning for.

Kerry McNamee, Natural Resources Scientist

Artemisia has helped me grow and been such an excellent example to follow. Working with her these past 6 months has changed how I feel about myself, it has shifted my perspective on what's "wrong" with me to how I can use my pain as a gift, and all the while cultivate unconditionally loving patience with myself. That has translated into more honest and fulfilling relationships with other people, and is helping me learn how I can use this healing to be a healer myself. Thanks for all the love!!

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!

Sanskrit/English Poses

Sanskrit/English Poses

“The vibrational purity and resonating power of Sanskrit is above all an opera on a grand cosmic scale that you can sing with your whole heart and being.”  ~Vyass Houston

All of life resonates at a specific vibration.  Sanskrit is considered to be one of the oldest languages on earth, comprised of sacred sounds of rhythm, melody and harmony. The Sanskrit names for the physical asanas, or yoga poses, were crafted to reflect the essential nature of that which they describe. The seed sounds, or bijas, that make up each Sanskrit title for a particular yoga pose, carry a unique and intentional frequency. Perfect pronunciation of these bijas resonate with the essential vibration of the universe itself. To call an asana aloud in Sanskrit while aligning yourself in that particular posture is a tangible way to deeply explore the energy of that pose while unifying sound and physical sensation.

I invite us all to welcome more Sanskrit into our lives!  🙂

I offer below a work in progress – I am compiling a list of yoga poses with their corresponding English names.
♥ I will update this as time allows. ♥
