Sybil Shearburn, NCPT
Sybil began her Pilates journey in 1996 after reading an article on Pilates and feeling the powerful effects this method of exercise had on her body. She completed a year long teacher training program with Randi Whitman in Chicago in 2001 and taught Pilates at Randi's studio, Frog Temple for 2 years. In 2004, Sybil opened her own studio in Huntsville to share her passion for the Pilates method and the awareness it had brought to her movement, alignment and overall balance and strength. Continuing her education, she mentored under Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle in Balanced Body University's "Passing the Torch" year long mentorship program. After owning and running her own studio for 11 years, Sybil joined forces with friend and colleague Jenny Barnack, forming the Pilates Center of Huntsville where she still teaches her love for movement and the Pilates Method. Sybil believes that all good movement has its roots in body awareness. This is the message she most wants to convey to those seeking her training through Pilates. Outside the studio, Sybil enjoys playing tennis, running, hiking, and anything outdoors while trying to keep up with her active daughter Sophie.
