Rumana Rab is a dynamic yoga therapist who brings her energy, gentle nature and philosophy to every person she mentors. Rumana has realized her vision of yoga through the foundation of her yoga studio, Rumana Rab Holistic Yoga.
Rumana discovered yoga in 1997 while living in India. She herself was obese and diagnosed with Thyroid imbalance. In her wake to overcome her own ailment, she practiced yoga and it turned out to be just the remedy! What began as a practice to stay healthy and fit, converted into her passion and relaxation pursuit; which provided her with much-needed space to focus inwards and forget about the world outside. She realized the power of yoga and decided to share this knowledge with others.
Rumana thus began her journey of practicing yoga. In the early days, she began with teaching school children. Later on she started training employees of Raymond Limited, Denim Division in India. She used her practice as a means of dealing with stress and enhancing performance of the employees.
Upon moving to Dubai she devoted herself full-time to yoga. What began as a physical practice for gaining strength and flexibility quickly became a lifestyle. Rumana coaches her students to take yoga off their mat and apply the principles to their worldly lives. She not only teaches this philosophy, she lives it!
Rumana follows a Holistic approach to Yoga. She believes that Yoga is a union of the body, mind and soul. Her personalized method of teaching makes her approach unique. She has many Asana's to her credit, which she has developed keeping in mind the needs and problems of individuals.
I have been Rumana's student for the past three years. Yoga helped me a great deal in every way. It has reduced the instances of cold and cough which was very frequent before and has also helped me psychologically as well by increasing my patience and determination level and generally making me more optimistic overall. For all this more, I will always remain grateful to Rumana
About 2 years back I was diagnosed with polycystic ovary, which as per my doctor could only be controlled and not cured. I approached Rumana and she instructed me to do certain asanas. Today not only am I fully cured, I do feel a lot more energetic. Yoga with Rumana indeed has changed my life.
The biggest problem I had was the trembling of my hands and fingers when I lifted something… My doctor confirmed that it was the initial signs of Parkinson's disease. Due to this, I could not take the driving license as well… Besides, I always had the problem of acidity, constant fever, throat infection and sleepless nights. By the grace of Almighty and Rumana's help, I am completely cured without any medicines. I cannot thank Rumana enough!
I joined Rumana Rab's yoga in my second trimester as I had severe problem of back pain, varicose veins and cramps in the stomach. Under Rumana's guidance and with the breathing techniques and yoga exercises, I could recuperate with all the problems and had a smooth delivery. After meeting Rumana I would say she is not just an instructor but also has a healing touch
I came to Rumana complaining of lower back pain as a result of slip disc and nerve compression. Within 6 months, I could notice the improvement and could easily practice all the asanas and postures without any pain. Also, the various prayanamas and asanas during the course made me feel healthy and energetic. I must thank Rumana for all her help and in confirming my belief of limitless health and benefits of practicing yoga.
I have lost 10 kilos in one and half month. This could happen only because of Rumana's support and inspiration along with her yoga exercises and specific diet chart which I followed strictly and regularly. It worked! Thanks Rumana!

I had a tendon in the knee damaged. It was very painful and despite a lot of physiotherapy and painkillers, I could not walk without limping or sleep without pain. I also had pain in hip and thigh joints. I started yoga sessions with Rumana 5 weeks ago. Now, I do not have any pain in my hip and thigh joints. It has completely vanished! The knee pain is 90% cured. I am really impressed that with a few yoga exercises, my pain has been cured. THANK YOU RUMANA!
I was diagnosed with PCOs since I was 15 and was taking hormonal (tablets) treatment, but all in vain. Both my ovaries show numerous cysts and for 7 years now I’m not taking any treatment as I was fed up. I get my periods every three months, if not; I take hormonal tablets to get them forcefully.
I came to Dubai to visit my daughter in Jan ’14. She told me about this place called Rumana Rabs Holistic Yoga that she went to. So I agreed to join as well, as she praised Rumana a lot. I went to her with a back ache and a knee problem and just after doing yoga regularly for almost 3 months and under Rumana’s guidance,

Two years ago, my right ear developed a problem called tinnitus (constant ringing/chirping sound from inside of my ear) and as a side effect, I had hearing problems. My initial hearing test showed 40% loss in my right year and my second one showed 60%. Doctors (both in India and UAE) informed me there is no actual solution.
