Molly shares the ‘extras’ that have helped her relieve the neck and back strain that come with caring for her 9 month-old baby. This isn’t just a workout for moms, anyone with tension in the upper back from slumping over a desk, computer or steering wheel will benefit immensely. You can do this class on it’s own or as a warm up before your regular Reformer or mat workout to release your shoulders and turn on your Powerhouse instead. APPARATUS NOTE: This session uses the Cadillac and Small Barrel along with a Weighted Bar and 2 pound Arm Weights.

    Where can I purchase a small barrel like that one?

      Hi Jodie, this one is from Gratz, the company that makes the best Pilates equipment, in my opinion. You can get a less expensive but still nice one at Balanced Body or look for a used one at http://www.thepilatesguy.com. Good luck! Molly

    Thank you! I agree – breastfeeding positions can do a number on your posture! Thanks for the comments!

    Thanks Molly! Those are a perfect bunch of exercises for a breastfeeding mother who slumps forward to feed. A mother who sits to breastfeed is in a worse position than a computer slumper because of the weight of the baby!
