TEACHES: Buti, Hot Buti & Vinyasa Flow 

Negarina Cooper’s journey to both the United States and yoga started very far away. Born and raised in Tehran, Iran, she left her homeland at 21 to seek adventure and to make her own destiny in this world. After several years in Italy, destiny came in the form of a charming young man from Toledo, and the rest is history. Coming to the United States in 2010, she has brought her rich culture and unique perspective to our community.


As a wife, mother, and full-time advertising executive, she turned to her yoga practice for inner peace, harmony and a break from the chaos of modern life.


Today, yoga means more to Negar than most people can imagine. It has not only allowed her to contribute to a culture of positivity and uplifting others, it has helped her overcome some of life’s hardest moments. Inspired by the memory of her daughter, Negar carries the spirit of her little girl with her. Yoga has transformed Negar’s life and she wants to give that love, energy and acceptance back to others.  


Negar was certified as a 200 RYT with Katya Seymour through Buti Yoga. She couldn’t have imagined the impact that her instructor and the powerful tribe of women around her would ultimately have. She believes in this new journey of hers as a student for life and is looking forward to meeting many more and learn from all.

Her favorite City in California is Malibu for its high cliffs and the endless ocean view.
