Don't let this posture scare you. It just takes guidance, patience and persistence to develop. Historically it seems to be one of the postures that new students set as a goal to achieve and I think that it is a good goal to set. As long as one does not have any pre existing neck issues this posture is not complicated and can be achieved by everyone with consistent practice and the pursuit and mastery of it will result in a more confident, focused and disciplined person than the one who began working on it.
