Beena Aurora, DPT, PT, CSCS, DTP
Doctor of Physical Therapy, Private Trainer
Beena provides women support and knowledge to manage and prevent injuries common with the physical demands of pregnancy, labor, delivery and motherhood. She offers women an opportunity to address their injuries at any stage during the childbearing years understanding time can be especially challenging for working mothers. She has extensive experience working in corporate health and wellness where she appreciates the balancing act women must play to maintain a successful career while raising a family. She believes a mother’s wellbeing is essential to the health of her family.
Beena understands the prenatal period is a time of great change for women physically, emotionally, and hormonally. As the fetus grows, the body is challenged by altered posture, shortened muscles and limited spinal mobility. These changes may cause pain and dysfunction. In the postpartum phase, fluctuating hormone levels combined with additional physical changes as a result of delivery may also result in musculoskeletal problems such as weakness of joints and core stabilizers. Beena focuses on helping mothers’ stay strong and maintain function during this amazing but challenging time.
Beena is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Certified Prenatal and Postpartum Trainer, has completed numerous prenatal and postpartum advanced education training programs and additionally has developed therapeutic skills to address musculoskeletal, neurological, and biomechanical problems specific to prenatal and postpartum. She uses a hands-on approach to address spinal and pelvic joint dysfunction, develops exercises to address weakness or muscle imbalances, and provides recommendations on necessary activity modifications with respect to the injury. Beena teaches our specialized classes and seminars in the New York area, including the bebeBOOTCAMP Mom-in-Training workshop which is our cornerstone program providing the basics for safe and effective movement exercise before, during and after pregnancy.
