Jeanmarie Paolillo, author of The Vibe-A-Thon, is a yoga teacher trainer and certified professional coach. She leads trainings and workshops on the physical and philosophical aspects of yoga; how the mind works; meditation and mindfulness, and the energetic body internationally.

The fundamental purpose of this work for Jeanmarie is learning to be present in the moment. She lives in the passionate belief that all things in life are possible and that manifestation requires an understanding that everything is the culmination of our thoughts. The journey of presence leads the practitioner to a place of awareness regarding the life they are creating so they can consciously create their lives – as evidenced by her own leap from the corporate world after 20 years and her relocation to Southwest Virginia. She is known for her compassion, practicality, clarity, insight and sense of humor. Through this combination, Jeanmarie facilitates others on their path while receiving lessons from those she works with.

Jeanmarie has been featured in Natural Health Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Yoga Journal and has appeared on and the CBS Morning Show. She is part of the Expert Network for a featured contributor to The Daily Love and an Architect for Change on . She holds a B.A. in Psychology from Indiana University, is recognized as ERYT500, has received a Certificate in Applied Positive Psychology and is a Certified Professional Coach through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). The Vibe-a-Thon is her first book.
