Bonita is an experienced Garuda & Pilates instructor and the founder of SELF Fitness Studio. She is passionate in helping students improve their body awareness while increasing physical and mental strength. Her specialties include sports performance training, pre/post-natal fitness, injury rehabilitation, general health and body conditioning.
Years of extreme exercise and a horseback riding accident brought Bonita to Pilates in 2014. Through practicing she was not only able to heal her chronic knee and back pain, but also increase her performance in sports, and perception of the mind-body connection.
Bonita completed her Pilates training with Polestar Pilates, then gone on to achieve additional Pre/postnatal certifications. After years of teaching full-time, Bonita found The Garuda Method, and discovered it has immensely helped her clients from all backgrounds. Over the years, she has attended countless training in London with the founder James D’Silva, making her the only Garuda teacher in Hong Kong.
As a mother and avid athlete, Bonita is skilled at working with clients from diverse exercise backgrounds. Whether conditioning clients to enhance sports performance, or supporting busy mothers pre/post-partum, Bonita is able to adapt to meet clients where they are at. Her classes combine various techniques that aim to build strength, improve posture and increase flexibility.
She is fluent in English, Cantonese and French. When she isn't working, she can be found spending time with her family, freediving or eating cheese.
