My neck feels great! Could it be because I stopped yoga a year ago?
In January 2012 I stopped taking classes. A conflict came up with the class I had been attending for years but there are tons of options in this area so I could have managed. I didn't. I procrastinated. I just kept saying "I'll start again, when I feel like it." Now it's a year later. I almost never take pain meds for my neck and I'm back to not remembering that I even have a neck. (Which is nice, because I hate my neck. It's too long and floppy, like Alice in Wonderland when she's eaten a mushroom.)
I miss yoga, and I think it was good for my strength and balance and brain and a bunch of other things. What I should do, since I know the basic moves, is create my own routine, making sure I do only movements that put zero pressure on my neck. That leaves out a lot of moves but it could be done. Even if I did it only once a week it would be something. It's a thought. I'll file it with all the others.
