Does the 8 mm in Uttama premium mat sacrifice balance?
Concerned about the sinking in, but due to arthritis I need extra cushioning ... Please any feedback is appreciated

I have not had trouble balancing. Though it is 8 mm, it is not squishy. I have been doing yoga for 2 months and my ankles started out very wobbly, but they have strengthened. I have not noticed that the mat "gives" as much as I thought an 8-mm mat would. I like its firmness.
If you need extra cushioning, you may consider placing a cheaper thick mat under the rubber mat. That is what my instructor does routinely.
