“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

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…

Artemisia teaches with an open heart and a big smile. While her practice is rooted in alignment and spirituality I love that she invites her students to play in yoga class. Artemisia’s classes challenge and inspire me to love myself deeply.
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.
Artemisia is a patient guide, like the captain of a ship she steered me home to my heart. Then, with her intuitive eye, she reminded me of that golden ocean place that I knew as a child. It was a tremendous reconnection with the beauty of my soul that I didn’t recognize.
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 thought my reading with Artemisia was sensational…Without hesitation she picked up on my current heart connections, dilemmas and dreams…She gave me solid info about a specific tone I could take in an upcoming oral presentation…Her insights were warm, expanding and connected to spirit…Within a few moments of my session with her I knew she had the goods…Also, her presence, physicality and inner demeanor are loving, expressive, inviting and all lead to joy and affirmation…I highly recommend Artemisia as a gifted, loving healer…
I appreciate your generous gift of spirit. You indeed do shine brightly and I am privileged to have those rays fall on me. You classes are wonderful, but I suspect that I would have felt that shine if I had only seen you at the grocery store. Blessing on you and keep radiating.
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 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 first found Artemisia’s wonderful classes via Yoga for a Cause at Om Shala Yoga in Arcata. I was drawn in by the cause, which is Artemisia leading a class to raise money for a local charity. I was really pleasantly surprised by her personal attention to each student, and how she came by and gently moved us into the best positions. There is something really special about a yoga teacher that cares, and I can really feel the love when she places warm eye pillows on our faces (yay! so nice!), or helps guide our movements with reassuring words. Possibly the best part of her classes are these great philosophical jewelz she weaves in, for example, “As you are sweating and struggling remember – you are love having a human experience.” And bam, I’d be reunited with my intentions and saved from losing pure focus on love. nice! Thanks Artemisia, I love the way you teach and live, blessings!
Artemisia’s astounding generosity of spirit inspires a truly unique practice. Her boundless energy and warmth lift me from my own busy mind, my routines and earthly concerns every time. Her class is truly a celebration of our magnificent selves: a dance that combines physical and mental discipline with play, deep soul-exploration and laughter.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
