About Dr. Suman

About Dr. Suman
My name is Dr. Suman (pronounced Simone). I have my own Health Coaching practice at Medicinal Nutrition DR, LLC

I have a doctorate in nutrition (clinical/medical). I am also a certified health coach, weight management specialist, and my training was specialized in working with overweight and obese individuals from all walks of life.

I have been a health professional for ten plus years and I have been offering health education for about the same time. I am very passionate about health and wellness and feel deeply sad when I see individuals struggling to become healthy and therefore resorting to diet fads or worse, struggling in silence. I think that knowledge is power only when you use it! Therefore, I decided to use my clinical and medical knowledge, education, and certification's to coach other like minded individuals about healt
h and wellness.

We all need a coach or a guide who can allow us to thrive and shine while, helping us navigate the rough waters effortlessly. In these times, while it may be easy to "google" something and find answers you may want to hear, not all of these answers are authentic or individualized for your personal health needs. Having a coach, guide, a support system, and an accountability factor all bundled in one, now, I doubt google can do that for you:) I pride in being compassionate, empathetic, and patient- all the qualities you may need in a mentor and a health professional!

I hope I am able to connect with you and share my passion for health and wellness while, at the same time, educate you and empower your journey!

I am also trained as a life coach, weight management specialist, and a mindfulness/meditation instructor-educator. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions before you wish to get started.

Lastly, I am a certified tarot reader, if you are looking to understand how to read tarot cards and grow spiritually, please get in touch with me.

A friendly disclaimer: I am not offering any health or medical advice, diagnosis, or treatments through this platform. My goal is to strictly only provide health coaching and nutrition education. Please contact me if you are interested in learning and becoming educated about health and wellness. I also do not offer or provide any related certifications upon completion of your personal program with me, this is purely an educational platform.

Dr. Suman is one of the most amazing people I have worked with. Her knowledge in the field is unmatched, but, I loved working with her because she is patient, kind, very compassionate, and will do all it takes to help her students. Please work with her if you are looking for someone to help you get off the diet cycle and learn to eat for your health. She does not stand for fads and will help you see results.

About Gigi
Hello and welcome. My name is Gigi. I have been teaching dance, dance fitness, and meditation for 30 years. I love the personal relationship with each student as together we bring forth skill, style, self confidence, expression, well being, and peace. My primary dance training was received from the Mid Hudson Ballet Company, with teaching certification from Music in Motion, Inc. My meditation training is rooted in 7 years of monastic life and 30 years of integrating the principles and practices into my being. I am a very compassionate, friendly, intuitive person who teaches with warmth, sensitivity, patience, and attention to detail. I look forward to bringing all of the above into sessions with you to help fulfill your personal goals and interests.

My relationship with dance began at the age of 3, when my mother enrolled me in my fir
st ballet class with the hope that it would help me gain the confidence to come out from my hiding place behind her back. Not only did it encourage me to overcome my excessively painful shyness, but it grew an everlasting love and shelter for me. I went on to receive the foundation of my training at Estelle & Alfonso Performing Arts and the Russian Ballet School of the Mid-Hudson Ballet Company. During my adolescent years, I became a teacher at the school and a performing member of the company. I also received the honor of performing in Harlequinade with the New York City Ballet, studying at the Craft of Choreography Conference on scholarship, and attending a variety of ballet, jazz, and modern dance classes by notable teachers in multiple schools and venues in the northeast.

In my adult years, I've enjoyed performing on many occasions, especially as a guest artist with Dog-Eared Dancers and in choreographic partnership with Anna Mayta of Anna Mayta Dance Fusion. I'm grateful to have expanded my modern dance and teaching experience with Laurie Sepe Marder, and to have studied Kuchipudi Classical Indian Dance with Kantham Chatlapalli, as well as ancient and modern Hula with Kumu June Tanoue. Under the mentorship of Barbara Thuesen, I received my certification in ballet teaching and choreography from Music in Motion, Inc. I was then accepted into the dance department at the West Australia Academy of Performing Arts, but chose to remain close to home and open White Lotus Ballet in 2004 instead.

Since then, I have had the ongoing pleasure of teaching dance to dozens of children and adults in my space, as well as at preschools, daycare centers, yoga studios, and special events. My teaching style and content continue to evolve with the gathering of insight, compassion, and experience.

In addition to traditional dance, that evolution has also expanded to include teaching meditation and healing dance. I am a very devotional soul and a natural intuitive empathic healer. So, i find all the gifts, talents, inspiration, and wisdom I receive come together in a variety of forms and ways I teach to touch the heart and desired interest of each student. Again, I look forward to creating lessons that fulfill you in that way.

I took dance lessons from Gigi with a focus on self expression and working through issues that I was holding onto on any particular day. I am 60+ years old and never danced before. Where my typical perspective of myself standing in front of a mirror is not positive, I somehow was transformed into seeing beauty. Gigi is a beautiful person, very patient , non judging. Her goal was for me to meet my goal, even when it changed from week to week. Sometimes we worked on dance technique, other times using movement to work through feelings. I loved it.

About David
Hi there! As a current graduate student at Boston College I'm looking to help support myself and what better way than to be part of the community and share my love of piano, tennis, philosophy, and the English language with others! Having taken piano lessons throughout grade school, I'm well versed in lesson structuring and beginner to intermediate theory. With me you'll learn enough to "make you dangerous" (as the saying goes) so that you can sightread any music you're interested in playing. Tennis is second nature to me, as I’ve taught for over a decade and played at the collegiate level. I’ve worked with players of all ages to help them improve every aspect of their games. Philosophy and English are my intellectual passions, and I can impart all I’ve learned and help your approach and understanding of the great texts of the canon. My h
ours are very flexible and I have tenured experience working with kids of all ages, and hope to inspire in yours a love of these subjects that will stick with them their entire lives just as mine has
