If downward facing dog is causing aches in your wrist and elbows, or camel pose is creating tension in your knees and hips, then this yoga pad by Crown Sporting Goods is the solution. Made with high-density foam, this pad is 15 mm thick. That’s almost 3/4 inch of padding, allowing you to comfortably exercise on surfaces with minimal shock absorption. Its ridged texture creates a non-stick, moisture-resistant surface, so you can safely practice yoga, Pilates and other floor exercises without slipping or sliding.
This pad measures 24″ x 10″, and will fit perfectly across any standard yoga mat. This lightweight, moldable foam will roll up nicely inside your yoga mat, so it’s easy to take with you wherever you exercise. This pad is not only functional, but also aesthetically designed to enhance your workout experience. One side of this pad includes a design that was inspired by the unique designs of chakras, while the other displays basic yoga poses. It’s also available in a variety of soothing colors: coral, meadow, lilac and waterfall.
Why use a yoga pad?
Exercising on surfaces with a high level of shock absorption is vitally important for the health of your joints. Unfortunately, these types of flooring can be difficult to come by at home, the gym and outside. Using a high-density pad during your workout, provides that extra cushion to your hands, wrists, elbows, knees, hips and back, that most floors aren’t equipped for. The extra cushion is not only great for safely strengthening weak joints, but also preventing future injuries and mitigating common pains suffered by yogis of any level.
