“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.

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:

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…

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!
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!
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’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.
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 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’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 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.
Artemisia’s class has been a wonder for me and brought me back to my languishing yoga practice with enthusiasm and dedication. Artemisia brings a beautiful and uniquely effective mix of the the physical, mental, emotional, musical, and spiritual to her teaching and guidance.
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 is my fav yoga goddess. She is the shinest teacher ever! Her yoga class is world class and life changing; I always feel so alive and filled with light after her class. You would be so lucky to get a spot in one of her classes:-)
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?
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 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!
