MELISSA

Melissa is an artist who expresses life as a dance through massage from several ancient modalities and practice in yoga, mantra, music, and meditation. She seeks to create a space where people feel comfortable to deeply feel and express themselves. Her journey to her center began with yoga.  She started practicing in high school finding personal growth and healing. She continued on to massage school and fell in love with Thai Massage in part due to its yogic roots. Traveling to follow her teacher, Melissa studied near and far for the past ten years, developing her skills and practicing as a massage therapist. Her path led to further study in Yoga and Ayurveda at Naropa University, earning her Bachelor’s degree in Traditional Eastern Arts. She now teaches in the PTS(D) Residential Rehab program at the VA Eastern Colorado Health Care System’s facility in Denver as well as in the VA’s Inpatient Psychiatric Unit.

TIFFANY

TIFFANY

Teacher

Tiffany Shocklee has been a yoga teacher and bodyworker since 2004. While she has studied many different approaches to health and movement throughout the years, her passion has always been rooted in a physical practice that offers wider- reaching mental and emotional benefits. Her fascination with the adaptability of the human mind and body has inspired her to work specifically with people who have experienced significant challenges. She is not a veteran herself, but has witnessed the effects of combat on several family members and friends. In her private practice as a massage and craniosacral therapist, she has been privileged to accompany many veterans on a path of healing and presence. She believes the most effective methods are often the simplest. Her teaching style incorporates breath work, meditation, and coordinated movement with an emphasis on exploration and self-expression. She looks forward to the learning experience Comeback Yoga offers both teachers and students.
