(A lion’s mane and shoulders)


The fifth astrological sign in the Zodiac, Leo (Latin for “lion”) lies between Cancer to the west and Virgo to the east and is associated with the Nemean lion of Greek mythology, which was killed by Heracles as one of his 12 labors. However, Leo is one of the earliest recognized constellations: the Mesopotamians had identified the shape of the constellation as early as 4000 BCE, the Persians called it Ser or Shir; the Turks, Artan; the Syrians, Aryo; the Jews, Arye; the Indians, Simha. In all cases, the word means “lion”.

Personality Traits

Leos are dynamic, self-confident, and highly dramatic. With their creativity and enthusiasm, people tend to find them very entertaining.


Those born under the sign of Leo are gifted with the ability to lead and inspire others. They make great leaders. They are uncomplicated and they think and act big. They use their creativity, energy and intelligence to overcome any obstacle they may encounter.


On a bad day, Leos can be extremely arrogant and prideful. They can be jealous, aggressive, cold-hearted and may be irritable due to their uncontrollable tempers.

On Relationships

Leos are open, sincere, genuine and trusting. When let down by their partner, they are more disillusioned than most. They are generally poor judges of character because they are trusting. Leos may have numerous love affairs; their love of pleasure and beauty is liable to drive them from one attractive partner to another. They can be deceitful with their lovers, and because of this, their relationships often fail. They may be sincere and generous to their lover — but only while their love for them lasts.

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" × 3/16" (183cm × 61cm × 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!
