Molly takes you through all of the ‘extras’ that you can still practice while pregnant. You’ll make space for the baby and create vital circulation to support the body. This workout includes the fantastic toning benefits of the Arm Springs, Leg Springs, Roll Back Bar, Push Thru Bar, Side Leg Springs and more. A Small Barrel is used in this workout to support the upper body. This is a great stand-alone workout that teachers can also use as a guide for working with pregnant clients.

    Thanks Gabi and congratulations! I’m pregnant again too so there will be more prenatal videos from me to come! As for hanging, it really depends on the person. I thought half hanging felt great (for about 2-3 minutes) until the weight of my belly got too heavy and I felt like I couldn’t breathe. Whenever you feel short of breath, stop what you’re doing. I also did yoga throughout my pregnancy and I did inversions like hand stands until I was 30+weeks, so the full hanging felt good to me that late into pregnancy. But many people don’t feel comfortable going upside down period, pregnant or not so they shouldn’t. If you feel comfortable and can breathe well, there’s nothing wrong with going upside down while you’re pregnant – in fact I thought it felt great to reverse the circulation and for the weight to go the other way. Hope this is helpful and good luck!

    Hi, Molly. This is very helpful for my pregnancy(17 weeks). Thank you for your wonderful lesson!
    I am a trainee of Romana pilates program, doing advanced level now.
    but I haven’t done my intermediate written test yet though.
    I had stopped pilates for first trimester and just got back on track. I just restarted workout.
    I am just wondering If I can do full hanging.
    Is it too dangerous to be up side down?
