About Sub-Art Yoga

The history of "Casa Deković" is that of a house full of innovation, art and pioneering spirit. In the 1950s, fisherman Rozarijo Deković and his wife Filipa built it as Ražanj's first seafront house, despite the great respect for weather and wind that prevailed at the time. The positive energy of the two attracted people from all over the world who filled the house with life.


In 1996 her grandnephew, the artist and university professor of art and video design Ivo Deković and his wife Maja started the experimental underwater project "Sub-Art" here. In cooperation with the FH for design in Aachen, they created an art platform for various artists from all over the world. Numerous projects let the house breathe an artistic spirit.



On this basis, their daughter Iva Deković developed the idea for Sub-Art Yoga in 2016, combining different types of yoga, meditation and art. Today, the Sub-Art Yoga House is a very special place to recharge your batteries and find yourself.
