Lisa is quite possibly the most helpful and empathetic barre-tender we have. If you are unsure, if you can do better, Lisa is quick to give you the personal attention you need (and deserve!). We stress this philosophy at The Refinery, and Lisa embodies it.

Outside of The Refinery, Lisa is a 30+ year salon owner and hair designer locally and is the proud mother of two boys.
Felicia has the most passionate following at the Refinery. You just plain love her classes! No wonder.

Beth Jackson is our Power Yoga guru- an intense, full-body workout that uses fluid yoga poses to unite breath and movement.
Beth found yoga while pregnant with her first child — and ten years later is still hooked. She is excited to be teaching with such a wonderful fitness community. When Beth is not on the mat or the barre, she can be found enjoying life on Lake Talquin with her family.
That’s DR Brown. Jason has earned his PhD in Mechanical Engineering, building rescue robots. He’s now off in Phoenix, probably building an antidote to SkyNet. (He’s not our only instructor with a doctorate, but he is our only male instructor with one!)
Jason’s first encounter with Barre was through the Madison Social running group in 2015. He discovered Barre’s toning and restorative exercises were a perfect complement to his running. He has been taking classes ever since, and now teaches the virtues of the highiintensity low-impact classes for all ability levels. His class, Circuit Barre, is a fun, killer, sports, Barre class.
Jason loves to teach whenever he comes into town; if you ever have time to kill before or after class, ask him to show you some videos of his robots.
