Born and raised in Malaysia, Subita has been passionate about all things athletic. She moved to Orange County in Southern California in 1995 after a five year career as a flight attendant with Malaysia Airlines.
She has fostered a love of hiking, running, hot yoga and wine studies; anything that allows her to be outdoors and enjoying nature.
Subita discovered pilates while rehabilitating a pinched nerve in 2005. She immediately gravitated towards it after experiencing firsthand a discipline that promotes balance and alignment as well as strength.
After falling head over heels with her pilates practice, Subita pursued formal studies in the discipline, studying under the founder of BASI Pilates, Rael Isacowitz. She was certified through the BASI Pilates Comprehensive Teacher Training Course in 2009.
After 20 years in the US as a citizen and leaving behind her corporate career of 15 years, Subita currently resides in Calamvale. After four years living in Australia, she was presented with the opportunity to teach pilates again in 2017. Throughout her career in Australia, she has had the opportunity to work with a variety of clients ranging from children to teenage athletes, dancers, new mothers, clients wishing to enhance specific sports related endeavours and the elderly population.
Subita is excited and inspired by the broad spectrum of the population that pilates and yoga relates to, and how it can be tailored to address individual needs while its principles are infallible and never changing.
Subita teaches Reformer Pilates, Mat Pilates and Barre classes in Brisbane and is a Senior Instructor at Inna Essence. She is driven by the opportunity to share her love of the pilates method and the Body Arts & Science technique with clients, and loves to watch them integrate the work into their bodies and their lives.
This is where Subita truly shines; alongside teaching over 20 classes each week at Inna Essence, Subita can also be booked for Private or Duet classes. If you are recovering from an injury, looking to strengthen an area of weakness, improve posture or simply have the chance to focus one-on-one on your technique, these sessions with Subita are for you.
