OUR TEAM

  • Lisa Eppen
    Lisa Eppen NCPT & BB Comprehensive

    Lisa’s passion and curiosity for movement started at an early age through dance, gymnastics and sports. With over 20 years of teaching movement, her personal journey with Pilates began in 1993 while earning her BA in Psychology at Indiana University. There, she danced with IU’s dance company and discovered her admiration for Pilates and the physical and mental benefits that it provides. Her love for dance, wellness, healing, fitness, education and leadership led her to become certified in Zumba, group fitness, meditation and, eventually, Pilates. Comprehensively trained through Balanced Body, Lisa is a certified instructor through Pilates Method Alliance (NPCP) and is a master trainer for Balanced Body.

    Lisa brings passion, humor, education and attention to detail to each class and private session.  She keeps her students on their toes by blending traditional and contemporary styles providing a challenging and functional movement experience.  Her playful, creative and intuitive approach will take her students on a full mind body journey as they are inspired to explore all of what’s possible while striving for connection not perfection.  She is passionate about creating an atmosphere of acceptance and non-judgement for her class and private students so they are able to learn and grow in a supportive and empowering space. Having a deep understanding of how the body moves, she is skilled at adapting her teaching to whatever best fits the needs and goals of each particular student.

    As a team member for Reforming Indy since 2009, Lisa also enjoys passing down her knowledge and experience to other movement educators within the studio and the local community.

  • Joy Douglas
    Joy Douglas NCPT & BB Comprehensive

    Joy grew up as a gymnast and cheerleader. However, finding something similar in adulthood proved a challenge. She first tried Mat Pilates in 2013 and knew it felt familiar and also enticed her to come back for more!  She loved how Pilates made her feel alive and that love has carried over into her teaching. Joy began Balanced Body instructor training with Reforming Indy in 2015 and then tested out of the NCPT exam in 2020. Joy’s classes are upbeat, flowy, challenging, and full body focused. Fun Fact: In her early twenties, Joy backpacked around Europe for 35 days with only a tiny backpack.

    Her style is athletic, faster paced, and often uses some sort of prop.  You will get your heart rate up and get a good sweat going! Melissa loves to work more than one thing at a time- keeping your mind active and confusing your muscles.  Anything you do to keep yourself active will pair well with pilates- so you really can’t go wrong!  If your movement is taking your dog for a walk- great!  If you can get to a class and get a good strength and cardio boost- great!  Allow yourself grace for what you can do today, don’t beat yourself up and think you need to be working out hours a day to see results.

    Set goals that are realistic and give your instructors the opportunity to help you achieve those!  See you in the studio soon!
