As a NASW award winner, Corena has more than 3 decades of experience in developing methods to aid in holistic wellbeing of individuals.  With her innovative and research driven protocols, she is recognized as a visionary and a leader in the growing area of Trauma Treatment, as  popularized by the book The Body Keeps The Score.


She has taught and certified more than 100 medical professionals (LCSWs, Psychologists, and Psychiatrists) in her Clinical Yoga Protocols, a process proven to release trauma from the body.  Her courses in this methodology have been recognized for their value and approved by the Utah Juvenile Justice system for continuing education credit.

Corena began teaching her methods in 2003.  Building on the amazing successes of these practitioners, she developed the Nervous System Recalibration, or NSR™, Process in 2018. This process is rooted in the science of Polyvagal Theory and the Chakra System for healing and releasing trauma.


Through the melding of these two medical systems, she created a science based process that can recalibrate your nervous system after trauma, loss, betrayal and stress. She has worked with and taught this process to a diverse group of licensed and certified therapists, psychologists and psychiatrists, who report having results for their clients and patients that far exceed those of traditional trauma treatment methods. 


Her clients include A list film and tv screen actors and directors, corporate executives and politicians.  Corena was selected by Duke University to be part of a team that included professors from MIT as a Continuing Education specialist.  She was chosen as the first domestic and international Brand Ambassador for Athelta under the GAP name, and has worked with high ranking corporate leaders, including the Nike Team Xelerate Execs.


She has served on non-profit boards and currently serves as an advisor to, a non-profit organization focused on supporting the transformational arts, those that are underserved in the community and folks that have trauma.

Founder, Visionary

I love channeling my creative energy into transformation.  I know from personal experience what it takes to live your best life and I use yoga, exercise and  changing thought patterns to do that.


Why make yoga part of your transformation?  Well, if you're not breathing deep you're dying, and it will teach you nothing in the room has to change in order for you to feel better. 


Supporting you as you journey into your best life is the most rewarding thing that I do.  Let's do **it together!

I have a deep love and commitment to transformation and believe it is part of my dharma, or calling, in my life to teach it.  


My name is Corena Hammer and I’ve been the founder of Corena Hammer Online Yoga Training, Clinical Yoga Institute, and the first Yoga & Pilates Studio on the Northern Wasatch Front. I currently head Clinical Yoga Institute, online yoga trainings, as well as head other yoga teacher training programs. I have a deep love and commitment to the practice of yoga and believe it is part of my dharma, or calling, in my life to teach.


My relationship with my mat has been a great teacher for me and like any other important relationship in my life, it’s been joyful, insightful, confrontational when I’m not willing to be present, supportive during times of stress and karmic when I don’t take good care of myself.  A few times in my life I have tried to give up being a yoga teacher and my mat has always found a way to call me home to it.


It’s been a physically and emotionally defining event in my life to find yoga and has been a beautiful way to create a fuller expression of who I am. It has taught me the value of trusting myself, staying connected during the difficult times, tension usually makes things worse, openness brings insight and (most importantly) nothing else in the room has to change in order for me to feel better.


I started online training because I wanted to offer yoga training that was inviting, accessible and inspiring, no matter what level a student was at or where you live.  I love yoga and the clarity it can provide and that feeling is saturated into the trainings I've created online.  Because I love what I do and am passionate about it I want to share my vision and knowledge with others.


I have traveled to a variety of states to other studios to share what I know and love. Please contact me about the workshops and teacher training modules I can offer at your studio.   Namaste.

Social Media Specialist

I find so much joy in creating connections, whether face to face, on a yoga mat, or through social media. Our computers and smart devices provide such a unique opportunity to plug into our passions and connect with people who support and share those passions. Our lives are made up of small moments, and if I can bring a small moment of insight or joy into a life through a smile, a hug, or a post, I feel like I've made a difference.

Promotional Director

I am honored to promote the infinite beauty and wisdom that is part of life and a strong yoga practice. It is a blessing to be able to support someone in living their Dharma and to open and awaken  that calling in others. Enjoy the journey and do yoga!
