We all have our methods of coping with stressful times: confiding in our closest friends and family members, going on a five-mile run, wine. For lots of folks, yoga might also rank high on the list of first-line defenses. As we continue to spend more time at home, taking time to do some yoga is a two-birds-one-stone solution to getting some exercise while also working wonders for calming our mile-a-minute minds.
Not all of us may be able to shell out for a full home gym setup — but, odds are, a yoga mat to go with those free-to-cheap online videos is a worthy investment that we can justify. And, as anyone who's mindlessly scrolled Amazon's yoga mats selection, the internet has a seemingly endless selection of options. At first glance, you may think that they're all more or less exactly the same. However, there are a few that stand out from the stack — and we've combed top sites to bring you the most popular ones with satisfied yogi-reviewers to prove it.
