Then you're probably rolling more straight back. Try the third exercise I mentioned and really focus on turning your head to one side and putting your feet over on the opposite side. Then once you get the feel do the rocking exercise but try to go on a more diagonal. You are looking to train your body to roll from left hip to right shoulder and right hip to left shoulder.

This exercise is meant to teach you how if feels to roll on the diagonal and avoid rolling on your neck. It's something you can easily do at home.
