I'm Beth, also known as Dr. Beth or YogiBethC.  I am a licensed clinical psychologist (PhD) with almost twenty-five years of experience in a college college setting, and I am also a registered yoga teacher (RYT). With these two areas of expertise, I am able to provide a unique combination of psychological services and holistic programming. 
I have also had specialized competency trainings with Safe Zone and ACCC.  My office and yoga classes welcome everyone, and I emphasize mindfulness and yoga for all (bodies, abilities, ages, genders).

Mindfulness and Yoga on Campus

Take a Mindful Minute

I've developed a handout of short mindfulness breaks for Students and for Faculty (for use in the classroom). Weekly Mindful Moment sessions are available through Health Promotion.

Attend a Weekly Yoga Class on Campus

I teach a weekly drop-in yoga class open to the entire Geneseo campus community (students as well as faculty/staff).  Class is currently held on FRIDAYS, 12-12:50 pm in the Schrader Dance Hall (above UPD); the last class for the fall semester is Friday, December 10.  Read more details on the Student Health & Counseling Facebook pagePlease bring your own mat; masks are required as per SUNY Geneseo policy.

Request a Mind-Body Program

Would like to arrange a program for your class, group, club, or organization?  View my mind-body programming information.  I offer programs for both students and faculty, and I am available to provide programs in-person, via Zoom, or pre-recorded format (YouTube).

Try Free Yoga and Mindfulness Videos

At the start of the covid-19 pandemic in 2020, I began offering FREE at-home yoga and mindfulness videos on my YouTube channel, YogiBethC. The yoga practices are short (most are 15-30 minutes) and intended for all bodies, all abilities; the mindfulness practices are generally <10 minutes. Comment on one of my videos if there is anything you would like to see me add to my channel.

Explore Mindfulness Playlists

I have curated playlists on both Spotify and YouTube specifically to assist SUNY Geneseo students with practicing breathing and other mindfulness techniques. Most are 5-15 minutes - pick 1-2 to try.

  • Spotify Mindfulness Resources - a playlist I put together on Spotify featuring short (5-12 mins) practice resources; you can also view my Yoga Music Playlists on that site
  • YouTube Mindfulness Resources - a playlist I put together on YouTube offering different types of mindfulness and basic meditation practices
