“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…

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.
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’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 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. 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?
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 heart space. I am grateful to have such a powerful healer by my side.
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.
Endless thanks for your contribution in collaboration with The Healing Circle. Your presence fully encapsulated all that we hope to give to our participants. The purpose of The Healing Circle is the expansion of a positive community empowered by the healing power of the hoop and the happiness it manifests; thank you for allowing us to recognize that divinity through yoga. Accessing and accepting the fullness of our being will aid us in greeting our highest potential in each and every moment.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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…
Your yoga class was such a joy to watch! Definitely heart felt and passion driven, you are a wonderful teacher and inspiring person. I hope I can bring as much light and love into my classes and practice as I see in yours.
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 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.
