(Head of a goat and tail of a fish)

Description

The tenth astrological sign in the Zodiac, Capricorn is one of the oldest mythological constellations, having been consistently represented as a hybrid of a goat and a fish since at least 2100 BCE. In ancient Sumeria, he was known as Enki, the primordial god of wisdom and waters, and later known as Ea in Akkadian and Babylonian mythology. In Greek mythology, Capricorn represents Pan, the god with a goat’s head, who saved himself from the monster Typhon by giving himself a fish’s tail and diving into a river with Aphrodite and her son Eros (who together became the constellation Pisces).

Traits

Capricornians are hard-working and are devoted to achieving their ambitions. They are fearless but also cautious. Finally, they are honest and loyal, always putting family first.

Strengths

They are persistent in the pursuit of their goals and carefully lay out plans to achieve them. Capricornians are independent and hard workers and are able to achieve great results with minimum effort and expense. They will always put their family’s needs before their own.

Weaknesses

Capricornians can be overly harsh and calculating on a bad day. They can also be pessimistic, melancholic, and unable to control their emotions.

On Relationships

Capricornians are very careful with their emotions and won’t throw themselves at just anyone. They are choosy and selective and demand high standards of behavior from their lover. When choosing a partner, they have an unfair reputation for giving status a higher priority than love.

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.

All of our yoga mats are 72" × 24" x 3/16" (183cm × 61cm x 4.5mm). We only make one yoga mat. Many designs, but only one yoga mat, because it’s the best 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.) Simply hose it down or machine wash on cold and hang to dry for a long, colorful life. 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.

Our microfiber suede yoga mat 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. Prefer a dry practice? Simply mist the surface of this 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. 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!
