Founder of Radiant Beginnings + Roots Up

Julie Campilio founded Radiant Beginnings in 2010 and Roots Up in 2019. She is a yoga and mindfulness educator and partner in research studies on children’s emotional wellness. She has been bringing yoga and mindfulness to diverse populations for over a decade and focuses on teaching youth how to develop tools to self-soothe.

For the past 15 years, she has taught in private/public education, substance use centers, with underserved youth, children with special needs and has partnered with social workers, therapists, and educators to create content that supports the social and emotional needs of ages 3-18.

Her drive to bring yoga and mindfulness to youth stem from her healing journey with anxiety and depression, specifically panic attacks. She is deeply committed to helping folks develop lifelong tools for big emotions and to increase resilience as part of a preventative approach to wellness.

Happily living in Maine, she thrives in nature, loves herbalism, biking, running and being a mom to her very active three year old. She teaches with Sea Change Yoga to bring trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness to those in the community who don’t typically have access.

Julie has been published in The New York Times, Elephant Journal, and Meditation Apps: Insight Timer and Gaiam.
