OUR VISION: We envision a world where military service members and their families have the tools and support they need for healthy, resilient living before, during, and after their service, enhancing their own lives and the lives of those in the communities in which they live.

OUR MISSION: Comeback Yoga provides free, accessible, trauma-informed, science-based yoga classes to the military community to enhance overall health and quality of life.

Comeback Yoga is a Denver-based 501(c)3 non-profit that delivers free yoga classes to help military personnel, their families and supporters develop resiliency in response to their life experience that may include post-traumatic stress. Comeback Yoga also provides relevant master teacher training for its teachers to enable them to offer yoga classes best suited to the military community.  Comeback Yoga's other mission is to offer scholarships for Yoga Teacher Training to veterans who are interested in becoming yoga teachers themselves.

Comeback Yoga offers over 50 in-person classes across Colorado at the Eastern Colorado VA Healthcare System, VFW Posts, military installations and wherever a community of veterans requests our services. We also offer daily online live classes through YouTube


"The online classes make it easy for me to get yoga, even when I don't have gas money." -Vietnam Veteran

"This experience is incredibly beneficial to my personal growth and healing as a combat veteran. Yoga has brought me peace, and I wish to share my love of yoga healing with the veteran community through teaching the practice, and introducing yoga into the lives of those around me."
-Scholarship recipient, Army combat veteran

"For a few years, I was experiencing debilitating housebound isolation due to my depression and PTS(D). Weeks would pass before I would have the courage to leave my house. After some time like this, I found my way into a Comeback Yoga class. It was exactly what I didn't know I needed." -Army Combat Veteran

"I did 3 tours of duty and haven't slept well in 7 years. I slept for 14 hours after your yoga class. I'll be back." -Golden VA Student


Comeback Yoga provides free, accessible, trauma-informed, science-based yoga classes to the military community to enhance overall health and quality of life.

Background Statement

Comeback Yoga supports Denver's military community using trauma informed yoga practices. Classes are based on yoga teaching methods developed using recent scientific research for the treatment of PTS(d). Comeback Yoga identifies experienced yoga instructors and facilitates teaching yoga to the veteran population. Nearly 60 free classes per week are currently taught across the state of Colorado reaching veterans, active duty service members, family and supporters and healthcare providers. Our living streaming class reach an international audience.

Comeback Yoga evolved from two years of volunteer work coordinating and teaching yoga at the Denver VA Hospital. Demand from the VA and emerging science-based supportive research on mind-body therapy for PTSD supported the need for program expansion both within the VA (inpatient) and at other locations.

Yoga as a sustainable, effective adjunctive treatment for veterans with PTS is becoming more and more widely accepted, especially since the pandemic. Yoga is offered to active duty personnel deployed worldwide through online classes and Comeback Yoga is leading the way locally in deploying science-based appropriate yoga classes to the military community. We network with other programs nationwide to bring best practices to our program as well as export our learnings to others.

The statistics are staggering -- war weary veterans coming home with difficult mental health issues that negatively impact them and their communities. We believe Comeback Yoga can be part of an effective and sustainable solution for a healthier community.
