Julie Campilio founded Radiant Beginnings in 2010. She is a youth yoga and mindfulness educator, consultant, author, curriculum developer and partner in research studies on yoga and mindfulness. She has been bringing healthy coping strategies to diverse populations for the past 11 years and focuses her program on teaching youth how to develop tools to self-soothe.
She has worked in private/public education, substance abuse centers, with underserved and high-risk youth, special needs populations and has partnered with social workers, occupational therapists, and teachers to create content that supports the social and emotional needs of ages 3-18.
Her drive to bring yoga and mindfulness to youth stems from her healing journey with chronic anxiety, specifically panic attacks. She is deeply committed to helping people develop lifelong tools for stress and anxiety. Happily living in Maine, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, biking, surfing, and cooking.
Julie has been published in The New York Times, Elephant Journal, Insight Timer Meditation and Gaiam Meditation apps.
Samantha has had a love for yoga since she was 12 years old. She began practicing to stay limber as a cheerleader and focused as a student. Her practice began to grow each year throughout high school and college to help manage anxiety. Not finding her bliss on the East coast, she found herself in Colorado sharing her love of yoga with children. She now teaches youth yoga and stress-management through in-school enrichment programs. She also leads workshops and teacher trainings. Her intention is to empower children to live authentically & mindfully and to help give adults the tools to spread the joy of yoga to the children in their lives.
Samantha became a Karuna Reiki Master in 2012, and completed her 200 hour RYT certification through The University of Maryland Medical School. She received her children’s yoga certification through Radiant Beginnings in Denver, CO
