Genesis in-built SEO has basic things you would need like meta title, meta descriptions, no follow and more. While Yoast by SEO has these features plus additional functionality like social profile setup, sitemap and more.
For a newbie, configuring Yoast plugin can be over whelming. However, using Yoast plugin can be a good decision. I have been using it on all Genesis powered websites without any problem.

Here’s why I recommend using a plugin for SEO instead of a theme. When it’s time to change your theme, how does that impact your SEO? If you stay within Genesis, perhaps not so much. What if you decide to use a different theme down the road, though?
With a plugin, you keep that part of your site consistent. Also, there are more options to transport SEO data between popular plugins than there are for the various themes. You may decide to leave Yoast someday. If that happens, you’l only have to find a data transporter for SEO.
In other words, keep different aspects of your site in the best of breed containers. It isn’t that Genesis SEO is bad, but changing the theme will impact more than the look of your site if you go that route.
