    "Arthritis Today" did a 2-page feature (below) on the different types of Yoga and whether each type was good for someone with arthritis. One poster commented that she had to change some of the positions, and that makes sense and a teacher familiar with arthritis might be able to help you to change any pose you may have pain or difficulty with. So it may not be the mat, and instead be the position. Just a thought.
