D. Amaadi Coleman, Founder
Amaadi's journey as a wellness practitioner started at home, because movement was a must in her family. When she and her brother were young, their mother would wake them up before sunrise to bike or jog around the neighborhood before school. So, movement has always been a part of her life. Her mother made sure of it.
She added healthy nutrition habits to her movement practices in college while studying Spanish. There, Amaadi became a vegetarian and delved into researching food and how the body reacts to it. Combining the two were the building blocks for developing a body that felt efficient, healthy, and strong.
Amaadi, The Belly Therapist™ is also mom to three sons, a NASM certified personal trainer, group exercise instructor, nutrition lifestylist, and holistic healing advocate. After naturally healing her own abdominal separation (diastasis), she became the first Black Tupler Technique® Trained Professional. Now, as the Belly Therapist, she educates and supports the natural healing of abdominal separation among women.
