Just because I practice yoga every day does not mean I get used to my knees and hands getting sore from a thin mat. I have nice yoga mats that I take to the studio, but I wanted something a little thicker to use at home.
I honestly was not even sure if there were thicker mats available. Then, I saw the ProSource Yoga Mat at Amazon, and thought it might be what I was looking for, but surely something this affordable could not be the answer, could it? I have mats with no cushioning that cost 3x what this thing did. Still, I figured I would give it a try.
I love this mat! It is 71 inches long and 24 inches wide, so it is definitely roomy. Plus, it is 1/2-inch thick, and it is made of very forgiving foam. It absorbs impact beautifully and is nonslip, so you do not have to worry about injury. It also cleans nicely.
If I knew I would not be laughed out of class for needing such cushioning, I would roll it up and take it to the studio, but I don't dare! At least when I practice at home I can feel pampered. If you can see marks in the picture, this is from one of my dogs. She decided to carry it around by her mouth one day. I'm quite surprised it held up so well to this abuse.
