Massage Therapy, Yoga & Qigong

About the Practitioner


Dawn Decker Bodywork has been my Massage practice and Yoga business in Vermont since 1986 when I relocated from NYC.  After a successful 8 years of modeling, TV, commercials and theater, it was time for a calmer, centered life.  I began my bodywork education at the Swedish Institute in midtown Manhattan 32 years ago and have continued to train with various masters, as Milton Trager, John Upledger, Aaron Mattes and study diverse modalities as, Sacred Lomi, Tui Na, Lymphatic Drainage, AIS and Sports massage to name a few over the years.

I enjoy creating an individual approach for each patient. I find it important to encourage the healing process to continue at home with teaching strengthening exercises, stretches, breathwork, relaxation techniques while addressing life style issues.

Yoga in the Woods was my studio for 10 years where I had daily classes and weekend workshops.  I am currently teaching one on one doing Yoga Therapy, Laughter Yoga and Qigong in my Richmond office, and doing house calls for private practice or small groups.  And I also offer corporate stress-reduction classes.

It makes me very happy to share the power of massage, yoga and qigong, as it has been a wonderful healing aspect in my personal life.

I am a proud mom of a 29 year old son, Kameron, PhD student in mathematics at the University of Washington in Seattle. After a year long Fulbright scholarship in Chile, there were now bigger mountains to scale, so he headed west.  When not in front of a computer, Kam balances his life with adventures. His daily passions and lifestyle include hiking, climbing, skiing, biking, reading, travel and music.

My husband, Jim and I live amongst our 2 unique cats and energetic Standard Poodle pup, Kala who will greet you at the door.  We enjoy hiking, skiing, golf, travel, cooking, UVM Hockey, music and theater together while also acknowledging our differences.  I like to walk.  He likes to whitewater kayak.  I sing.  He applauds. Balance is a Libra goal.  We laugh!

Estoy estudiando español y disfruto clases de Zumba tambien!

I look forward to meeting you soon!
