5 Cushioned Yoga Mats to Support Your Joints
I love my yoga mat — until I'm 15 seconds into Camel Pose or Low Lunge and my knees inevitably start to ache. For as much good my mat brings to my body, it unfortunately lacks the joint support I need in certain poses.
While modifying by sinking into Child's Pose is always an option, another solution for me is to invest in a thicker yoga mat with a little more cushioning — something my lower back wouldn't mind either.
That's where the five yoga mats below — all made with joint comfort in mind — come into play.
Scroll through and enjoy Savasana without any pain.
