“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

- 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 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:-)
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
I ♥ Artemisia Shine’s Hot Stone Yoga class. She really sets the stage for a serene yet powerful practice. You can tell it is important to her that EVERYONE in the room gets the most delicious experience possible. The poetic flow, candles, aromatherapy, live sound, hot stones, and lavender head massage are NOT to be missed!
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 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!
The BEST thing about working with artemisia is going on a journey beyond the delusion of thoughts. Whats there? Home, oneness, truth. Artemisia sees beyond our form, and holds up a mirror so that you/we may get a glimpse of the path of each of our three parts (body/mind/spirit). In this recognition we may move forward, reuniting our three parts so we may realize our infinite potential as beings beyond this form. Being able to become a witness of our inner truth (or even a few pieces of our truth) will empower you to move forward in life realigned on the path of truth and one love. It is all within you already. Don’t be scared to look in the mirror of your divine you. Let Artemisia be your mirror. You may come to love what you see. So will we all.
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.
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.
