August 22–September 23
♍ (A maiden holding a sheaf of wheat)
The sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac, Virgo is the last of the summer signs and is represented by a young woman named Astraea holding a sheaf of wheat. In Greek mythology, Astraea was the last immortal to abandon Earth when the gods fled to Olympus and she ascended into the heavens to become the constellation Virgo. However, the association of this constellation with maidens and harvests goes back even further: In Egyptian mythology, the time when the constellation Virgo was in the sun marked the beginning of the wheat harvest, and Virgo has the equivalent sign in Indian astrology as the Kanya (which also means “maiden” in Hindi).
Virgoans are quick thinkers, observant, and analytical. Though modest and shy, they like to help others and people can rely on them. They are dedicated and work hard to achieve their goals. They are meticulous perfectionists.
Virgoans are sensible, discreet, well-spoken, wise and witty. Because they’re observant by nature, they have a good understanding of other people’s problems around them. They have considerable charm and dignity, as well as an excellent eye for detail.
They can be too preachy, uptight and critical. Virgoans hate responsibility. They have a tendency toward self-pity and self-destruction.
Virgoans are highly sensual, deeply loving and eternally loyal. They are very private people and don’t talk much about their relationships. They may seem cold at first, but they actually love deeply and hope for a lasting relationship. They are selfless and will do absolutely anything to love and support their partner, even to the point of sacrificing their own self-interest.
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![See more in our Zodiac collection]
