Tips: Make sure you tilt head straight off to each
side without shrugging the shoulder to compensate for a tight neck. Don't
force by "pulling" with hands--just use weight of head and let it go over.
Yet another simple exercise that people
struggle with because they are so locked up. Think--this is for mobility

even if it's only a little.
Other Neck Mobility exercises I use
successfully are Head Turn and
Head 1/2 Roll.
