Yoga Nava Boat

Our Story

Istvan Pono was inspired to create the Yoga Nava boat after practicing yoga on the beach. The ocean carried him to a place he had never been before in his practice. That's where he was inspired to find a way to bring yogis and nature together so that the practice could expand as high as the sky and as deep as the ocean.
