The lbizan summer is in full swing. People are keen to relax, disconnect and enjoy themselves. Nativ wants to be a part of that adventure, and has prepared a new issue that’s full of creativity and will arrive on the island today. Artists, cultural events, recycling and the most creative innovations on the island are all packed into our magazine. Here is a sneak peek at everything you’ll find in this new issue.
Ibiza has been drawing artists, musicians, designers and creatives from all walks of life for decades to add to its huge pool of local native talent. What is it that makes the island such a fertile place, and a magnet for those seeking freedom of expression?

A DIFFERENT TYPE OF YOGA
From Hatha to Ashtanga, Kundalini to Bikram and Vinyasa to power – the many forms of yoga are endless. But this is Ibiza, the magic island where anything is possible. Kids, horse and alpaca yoga anyone?
