Carla Samelo, RCYT, Founder/Owner Shimmering Souls Initiative

Hi everyone, Namaste! I’m Carla Samelo, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I am the founder of Shimmering Souls Initiative in Edmonton. I have a Special Needs Educational Certificate from MacEwan University and have worked with children of all abilities for over 12 years.


I absolutely love working with children and their families, as I learn so much about how beautiful and bright our lights can shine. Children inspire me to continually grow both professionally and personally!


I have recently received certification to teach both meditation and yoga to children and youth, and I look forward to sharing all the great knowledge acquired.


A special thanks to Shawnee Thornton Hardy for sharing her expertise in her 95-hour Asanas for Autism and Special Needs Certification. Shawnee you have inspired me...thank you!
