Do you suffer with chronic neck pain? Chances are, you are also dealing with occipital neuralgia or migraines[1], insomnia, stiffness in your shoulders, pain when turning your neck and a host of other issues.

Sometimes movements make it worse, before it makes it better, but people stop at the first sign of movement because they think “Oh doing yoga made it so much worse, therefore yoga is bad, wrong, horrific, ... fill in your adjective here.”
