Dr. Beth's Mind-Body Resources
Free Yoga and Mindfulness Videos
I maintain a free public YouTube channel, YogiBethC. Below are a few videos created with SUNY Geneseo students in mind.
- 25-Minute Chair Yoga Practice
Chair Yoga - Vagus Nerve
This practice was created for general use/Mental Health Awareness Month, Spring 2023. It focuses on simple chair yoga postures that engage the vagus nerve in order to stimulate the body's natural relaxation response.
- 10-Minute Mindfulness Meditation
This guided meditation was created for general use, Fall 2022. It provides instruction in RAIN (Recognize, Acknowledge, Investigate, Nurture), a meditation technique popularized by Tara Brach.
- 30-Minute Floor Yoga Practice
Peace in Mind and Body
This yoga practice was created at the request of a student group, Spring 2022. It is an all-floor yoga practice accessible to anyone who can comfortably sit, kneel, and lie on the floor.
I have developed playlists on both Spotify and YouTube. These playlists were created specifically to assist SUNY Geneseo students with practicing breathing and other mindfulness techniques. Most of the techniques listed on these playlists are 5-15 minutes in length. Interesting in trying a new technique? I recommend selecting 1-2 to try at first. Then, be sure that you practice on a regular basis and at a regular time (e.g., in the morning, before bed). You might immediate notice a change, or it may take some time to experience benefits.
