Meet Lisa DiCristaforo Williamson

Lisa will be leading the 9 am Power Yoga
class on Thursdays, beginning, June 16th

Lisa Williamson stepped onto a yoga mat 40 years ago while living in Germany, and via a winding road of occupations and events, she’s now living her passion,  experience, and the power of yoga, onsite at Empower Yoga Studio as Studio Manager and Power Vinyasa Teacher.  She is certified through Yoga Alliance and her training includes Baptiste Level 1, a 200hr RYT with Divine Play Yoga, and 200hr RYT with Empower Yoga School. 

“The energy of yoga; what you cannot see, is what really excites me.  You begin in one place and you end in another; within this magical space lies the transformation.”  Lisa has leaned on her practice of yoga and meditation as she’s celebrated the good times in life as well as struggled through the hardships.  She believes yoga is accessible to all people, and has specialized experience working one-on-one with teen athletes healing from injury as well as those recovering from traumatic brain injury.  

Lisa nourishes her soul with the company she keeps, and where she keeps it.  She shares her tiny cottage by the ocean on Plum Island with her beloved husband Mark, remarkable daughter Olivia, her corpulent cat Domino, and perpetually positive dog Moby.  Lisa is a born writer and “has a book in her” which she’ll finish someday, yet she most enjoys “distracting herself” with creating in the kitchen.  Her unique and healthy food is legendary and enjoyed by all she loves.
