We are the mirror as well as the face in it
We are tasting the taste this instant
of eternity. We are pain
and what cures pain both
We are the sweet cold water
and the jar that pours.

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 am so pleased with Artemisia's class! It is up there on my very favorite things that I have ever done. It was perfect. Impeccable. The rest of my evening after went really well too. Something about me was different in a really good way in my class at the dojo. I know its just a small step on a very long path,but I am glad I took it and very grateful Artemisia was there to show the way. She is an excellent teacher.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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?
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 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.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
I love the way she teaches and lives, blessings!
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.
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.
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.” 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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 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 is an amazingly caring and nuturing instructor. Its impossible to quantify, and even difficult to describe the energy that she brings to the room. She teaches with a sense of peace and serenity we sometimes lack in everyday life. She is an inspirational leader and an encouraging, supportive friend the moment you meet her. Each of the many classes I have attended with Artemisia have been an intense experience of practicing the opening of our hearts through movement and meditation.
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!
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 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'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.
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.
I thought my heart 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…
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 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 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 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.
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.
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.
