Yoga, Mindfulness, Meditation
Yoga Class and Meditation Classes
When we are all on campus, I teach a weekly yoga class open to the entire Geneseo campus community (students as well as faculty/staff). During the current pandemic, I have been offering FREE at-home yoga and meditation classes on my YogiBethC YouTube Channel.
Professors, would you like information on incorporating mindfulness and yoga into your classroom? View my classroom programming information. I am available to provide outreach via Zoom or recorded on topics such as chair yoga, breathing breaks, the power of the pause, self-care, and more.
