The Best Jellies Cushion Pad

As your yoga practice develops, you may find that you need support in some asanas. Cushion pads are tools designed to create more space in yoga poses that will prevent injury and build strength for deeper movement in your yoga journey. Along with yoga blocks and straps, cushion pads are a way of supporting joints during your yoga practice. Particularly if you prefer practicing on a thinner mat, adding cushion pads takes pressure off the knees, wrists, and knuckles during your flow. They come in different sizes, with various amounts of support and in different materials. Here are our best picks for cushion pads for adding support for your joints on your yoga mat.
