Dr. Beth's Mind-Body Programming
Thank you for your interest in mindfulness and yoga programming with Dr. Beth!
My name is Beth Cholette, and I am a licensed clinical psychologist with Student Health and Counseling who has been at Geneseo for over twenty-five years. Since becoming a registered yoga teacher (2015), I have specialized in offering mind-body related programming on campus. I have certifications in restorative yoga, Yoga for All, Yoga for Healthy Aging, and yin yoga anatomy.
Some types of programs I can offer are described below; I would also be happy to tailor something to best suit the unique needs of your group. I am able to adapt my programming to various settings, including classrooms and Zoom presentations. My teaching emphasizes mindfulness and yoga for all (bodies, abilities, ages, genders).
If you would like to arrange a program for your class, group, club, or organization, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include information about the type of program you would like, the length of the program, the audience, the format, and potential dates for the program (note that my availability is generally limited to business hours). You can also use this general Request a Counseling Outreach Program form.
- Self-Care Programs for Students or Faculty
I have offered various versions of this program, focusing on mind-body coping skills, breathing, mindfulness, or a combination. Student programs have been offered via GOLD or in classroom settings, and faculty programs have been offered through TLC or by request of individual department (e.g., Admissions, Advancement).
- Introductory Mind-Body Programs
I have taught workshops introducing mindfulness-based meditation and beginning yoga via GOLD, in classroom settings, and on Zoom. Options included basic mindfulness techniques and chair yoga.
- In-Person Yoga Yoga Classes
I teach a weekly yoga class open to the entire Geneseo campus community (students as well as faculty/staff). For the 2022-23 academic year, this Midday Mindful yoga class will be on FRIDAYS, 12-30 1:30 pm in Schrader Dance Hall (above UPD). The classes are drop-in, open to all members of the Geneseo community (students-faculty-staff), and welcoming to everyone (bodies-abilities-ages-genders).
I have also facilitated yoga classes for other groups on campus, such as athletic teams during preseason and outdoor yoga as part of student orientation.
- Custom Yoga Recordings
I have a variety of yoga and mindfulness-based meditation videos available on my YogiBethC YouTube channel. I am also available to create custom videos for your class, organization, or staff. I will work with you to assess your needs and then create a private 10-30 minute video uploaded to YouTube. Please allow at least 3-4 weeks for this process.
Here is an example of a video I created for a student organization in March 2022, Peace in Mind and Body.
