The most powerful lesson I’ve learned in the last decade is this:

To live well you must learn to L E T G O.

Let go of expectations, perfection, and of people and things that make you unhappy. Let go of trying to be everything to everyone, all the time.

Let go of the past- good or bad. Of trying to always prove something. Let go of labeling yourself and others. Of blaming and shaming and judging. Of thinking you’re not good enough. Let go of thinking “when ____ happens I’ll be happy.”

Let go of controlling everything. Let go of wishing you or the people around you were different. Let go of caring what strangers think, and of measuring your worth against them.

Let go of good vs evil, black and white, right or wrong- and instead, embrace other opinions and nuances.

Let go of trying to *let go* perfectly. Because letting go is about the release, not rejection. It’s about not holding on so tightly...

Because once you start to let go, you’ll find you’ve been free all along. Because when you learn to move past that which does not serve you (that you’re clutching onto so tightly) you can reach for what lights you up.

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 and are completely washable.

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.) Simply hose it down or machine wash on cold in a front-loading washing machine and hang to dry for a long, colorful life.

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. 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!
