♈ (The face and horns of a ram)
The FIRST astrological sign in the Zodiac, Aries marks the first month after the spring equinox. In Greek Mythology, Aries (Latin for “ram”) is based on the Chrysomallus, the flying ram that provided Jason and his Argonauts the Golden Fleece. Although Aries has come to specifically represent Chrysomallus, it has represented a ram since at least late Babylonian times.
Arians have amazing stamina and a burning desire to succeed! They are unstoppable go-getters and dare you to make bold choices. An upbeat and magnetic personality helps them connect with others easily and makes them great companions.
Arians love competition! They are great at expressing themselves through physical and stunning verbal feats like debate and competitive games.
During a bad day, those born under Aries can be moody, impatient, and short-tempered. Arians love attention, so they hate being ignored and losing! The word “no” is simply not in their vocabulary. Arians can sometimes be aggressive, and others may find them self-centered and domineering.
They are flirty and tend to make the first move once they have their eyes set on someone. Arians are not afraid to reveal their true feelings without hesitation. They are passionate lovers and like to give tons of lavish affection, which is often too much for the other person. Unfortunately, their ambition occasionally gets in the way of love. They tend to devote the greatest amounts of energy to pursuing their career goals.
About Our Yoga Mats
Our beautiful and artistic yoga mats bond a velvety microfiber surface to an eco-friendly natural rubber base. This luxurious microfiber surface actually gets grippier as it gets wetter, making it perfect for all kinds of yoga, but especially for hot yoga!
Our mats are printed in our Minnesota studio using nontoxic water-based dyes.
We don’t plaster our logo on your yoga mat. Instead, we hide our name somewhere in every design. You can read more about why we do this here.

Great yoga mats start with great materials, and Big Raven Yoga mats are the highest quality yoga mats in the world. We’ve arrived at what we believe to be the ideal yoga mat.
It’s a well-balanced synthesis of size, weight and cushion made from premium, eco-friendly materials. Our brushed microfiber suede top is a proprietary recycled polyester to help lessen our impact on the environment. By using recycled (and recyclable) materials, we’re reducing our use of energy, water, and greenhouse gases.
In addition, our base is made from biodegradable, recyclable, 100% natural tree rubber which provides both excellent cushion and great traction for wet floors. Our yoga mats are the perfect blend of art and engineering and function as both your yoga towel and your yoga mat.
We only make one yoga mat. Many designs, but only one mat, because it’s the best mat we know how to make.
Our yoga mats are nearly indestructible. No matter what you do to them they’ll continue to look and perform like new for years to come. (We know this from experience. We WANT to treat our yoga mats the way they deserve to be treated, but we never actually do.)
Our microfiber suede surface provides more grip the wetter it gets, making it the perfect companion for sweatier practices and/or more intensive exercise regimes — you’ll never need a towel over your yoga mat again! It’s thick enough to keep your knees happy but light enough to take with you on the go.
For maximum grip, lightly spray with water before beginning your practice. The more you sweat, the more you’ll grip, and the more stable and balanced you’ll feel. Prefer a dry practice? Simply mist the surface of your mat with a spray bottle to activate the grip.
All of our unique artwork is created in-house by women with a feminist point of view or by guest artists. We don’t purchase designs from stock photo warehouses. You can be sure that every design is unique to us. And you can be sure you’ll have an eye-catching mat like no other!
