What if it wasn't comfortable to lay over the barrel?

Hello Elizabeth, If it wasn't comfortable to lay over the barrel, try a smaller barrel and/or pillow the head. If that is too much, then perform the exercises laying flat with a pillow if needed. The position isn't supposed to be "comfortable" necessarily, it just should not be painful. I hope this helps!
