Negar Tayyar


My life purpose is to enable others to live out their full potential, love, and live life fully.

I am living out my life purpose through my work as a coach and as a philanthropic advisor. I have been coaching individuals from all walks of life in 13 countries over the last 12 years. As a committed learner, I am currently finishing my professional development program at the Coaches Training Institute (CTI), the most established in-person coaches training institute worldwide. 

As a co-active coach, I work with individuals from all walks, either transitioning to a new chapter in their lives or trying to make sense and grow fully into the current one. My coaching is influenced by my Vipassana meditation practice, my Judo practice and other bodywork, as well as my experience living and working with various cultures. 

As the philanthropic advisor to ‘The Global Whole Being Fund – Caring for People on the Move’ I am enabling refugees, asylum seekers and internally displaced people across the globe to find meaning, connection, and belonging. This work is very close to my heart due to my own experience as someone who was forcibly displaced. I was born in post-Islamic Revolution Iran, grew up in Germany, lived in 7 countries, speak 7 languages and now live in Oakland, California. 

My other commitments involve: 

  • Co-founder of Two Ravens Trust, an initiative that supports interdisciplinary projects linking art, culture and wellbeing.
  • Co-founder of Judo Journeys, a global initiative improving the wellbeing of youth through the art of Judo.

My work is grounded in the Co-Active Coaching Model (see below) embodying four cornerstones: i) People are naturally creative, resourceful and whole, ii) Dance in the moment, iii) Focus on the whole person, and iv) Evoke transformation.

(c) CTI, more here. 


People are naturally creative, resourceful and whole

As humans, we have the innate ability to address the challenges we face throughout our lives. I acknowledge the inner wisdom and strength of my clients and enable them to connect to their inner voice. 

Focus on the Whole Person 

Grounded in the Co-Active model, I engage the whole person and pay attention to every aspect of being human: mind, body, spirit, and emotion. 


Evoke transformation

Life is impermanent. My work engages with changes and sees the potential to transform into change. My coaching aims to co-create and mutually transform one another.


Dance in this Moment

I engage my clients in a fluid and creative process. By being present, curious, and courageous, I work with whatever arises. I view whatever surfaces at the moment as a learning opportunity and invitation for playful discovery.




My clients usually prefer to connect once a week or biweekly mostly via phone. Most of my clients reside in Northern America and Europe. I would also love to work with clients in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The majority prefers to connect via phone; some like to communicate via Skype or Zoom. Our sessions are 30min in length.

you can schedule a session here. 


Be curious!

Free Sample Session

Are you curious about co-active coaching? Schedule a complimentary sample session! I encourage curiosity, one of my core values, and hence offer a free 30-minute session on the phone or any communication app for free.

Lets discover each other! (60 minutes)

I like to celebrate embarking on our journey together with a discovery session. This session is longer than our usual time together. The purpose is to connect and learn more about your values, aspiration, and longing. 

Book a regular session  (30-60 minutes)

You enjoyed the sample session and would like to continue our journey together? Just book a regular session. 




I work with individuals from all walks of life working in different sectors. Some clients get reimbursed by their employers, others use their own budget. Depending on the sector and the stage you are at in your life, the fees will differ. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. If you are experiencing financial hardship, reach out and we can discuss our financial arrangements as necessary. Times of hardship are when you need a personal and professional coach the most.


Christmas & End-of the Year Package (50% discounted)

Process & visioning ($50 for a 1 hour session) 

The year is coming to an end, and most of us are turning inwards and reflecting the last months. At the same time, we are creating intentions and a vision for the upcoming year. If you wish to go through the process together, just schedule a 1-hour session. I would love to hear what you are grateful for, what you have created and are proud of, and your learning from your process this year. I would also be thrilled to co-create a vision for the coming year. What is it that you want to invite to your life, what would you like to focus your energy on? 




Client satisfaction



Working with Negar has been a deep, adventurous, joyful and challenging process. She has held me accountable and is a reliable partner as I am exploring my journey. Her presence, attention, eye for detail has helped me to access my intuition and allow it to have space. Since we embarked on our journey, I feel that I am finally following my bliss.




Negar is committed to co-create whatever I need. I enjoy the flow of our sessions and the depth, which is sometimes bringing me to my edge. 




Negar has been a valuable presence in my life. I greatly appreciate her intuition, perspective, reinforcement, and all of her recommendations (books, poems, audiobooks, journal articles, etc.) that have led me to go deeper, ultimately strengthening my core being. Working with Negar has been a wonderful, organic process. I’ve appreciated that our sessions are not super structured, but a rare opportunity for me to share what I need at that moment the most. What a gift it is to have someone who truly listens to you, understands you, and challenges /supports you to keep growing.




Negar lead me to a huge personal unlock!
