About me: My name is Stephanie Funk. I am a Certified Pilates and Adaptive Fitness instructor. I teach group exercise classes for adults 50 and older through the San Mateo Adult School.
My teaching goals: To instill in my students a love of movement, an appreciation of the power and fragility of the human body, and an understanding of exercise as a critical component of our overall health and well-being.
My teaching mantra: Keep your body moving! Don't overdo it, do have fun. The best kind of exercise is the one you'll do. Choose any physical activity you enjoy and aim for at least 30 minutes a day. And remember that you don't have to do the whole 30 minutes in one session.
