About The Instructor – Saima Altaf


In 2000, Saima Altaf started her journey from practicing Yoga in Tripoli, Libya. Her trainers were from India, United Kingdom, and Switzerland. She fell in love with the idea of uniting the body, soul, and mind and would consistently practice Yoga and Meditation at home. After a few years, she shifted to Pakistan where she received her basic and advanced yoga training from the Art of Living. Saima completed her 200 HRS from Qi Yo Multiversal Yoga Alliance International, Bali, Indonesia where she received an intensive and complete three weeks training course in Yoga, Qigong, and TaiChi in 2014.

Today, Saima is a successful Yoga trainer and has her own Yoga Studio and Reiki Clinic based in Bahria Town, Phase 6, Islamabad. She conducts workshops, corporate training and gives online sessions, group sessions, and Private 1 – 1 Session.

In addition to Yoga, Saima is a Certified Master Reiki Practitioner. She has helped transform over 50 people’s lives – be it stress, anxiety, and depression to other forms of diseases such as cancer. Saima started her Reiki journey from the Institute of Mind Sciences by Dr. Moiz Hussain in Islamabad in 2007 and continues to do so, till date in her studio. In addition, she provides Reiki Attunement to those who are interested. (Level 1, 2, and 3)

I joined Yoga Studio and Reiki Clinic 11 months ago. It was difficult for me exercise as I have been diagnosed with Athritis and hypothyroidism. To my surprise, it was not difficult to follow Saima. She is competent and has the knoweldge to help such patients. There are days where I feel low because of the body aches but Saima knows how to take me from low pace to medium and gradually to high. I feel much better and energetic after taking yoga classes consistently! I recommed Yoga Studio and Reiki Clinic!

About the Instructor – Shinab Altaf


Shinab is a law graduate from the University of London LL.B (Hons) where she practiced law for 4 years. She worked in NGO’s/Advocacy (issues about women, children, and prisoners’ rights). However, she stopped pursuing law for several reasons, mainly due to long hours of work in the law profession, increased stress, and low levels of energy which was deteriorating her mental health. She decided to turn to Yoga for increased flexibility, high energy, and breathing exercises to relieve stress and anxiety. She fell in love with Yoga the minute she started her first class. She could not believe that simple exercises like breathing techniques would relieve the stress and anxiety that she has been suffering for four years would resolve the issue.

Shinab has been teaching Yoga at Yoga Studio and Reiki Clinic since 2020. Her mission is to fix people’s issues about their mental health and wellbeing or illnesses such as stress, anxiety, depression, and other forms of mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia through healing. Shinab is a 100 HRS Certified Yoga trainer from Yoga Alliance International where she received her training from Aliya Agha Internal Academy of Arts in 2021. She studied Yoga, Asanas and Meditation backed up with medical knowledge and its purpose. She wishes to continue her training – the next 100 HRs from the same Academy.

In addition, Shinab is a Certified Reiki Healing Practitioner (Level 1 and Level 2) where she heals patients of stress, anxiety, depression, and other extreme forms of mental illnesses at Yoga Studio and Reiki Clinic and Online (Distant Healing Reiki).

I visited Shinab at a point of extreme anxiety. I remember that day clearly and how I was struggling to breathe through out the work day. I visited her clinic after work day. I consider myself as mega skeptic and do not give in to claims and assertions easily. But in this case, the sceptic in me was addressed convincingly.
Half an hour of Reiki Session by Shinab delivered to me was supremely liberating amd lightening. I remember leaving her clinic in a state of heightened mental clarity. Not only did I feel better but I was also able to make a healthy decision for me by virtue of that clarity. For the help she extended, I would recommend her expertise to anyone struggling with an emotion low or blockade.
