From Football Jock To Professional Pain Remover

Richard Villella is the first one to say that he is not your average yoga instructor. A self-admitted and passionate anatomy geek (and former New England Patriot), he wants you to share your aching back (or any other body part) with him. The virile fifty-seven-year-old soccer dad tackles pain—neural, muscular, and joint-related—with all the tenacity he used on the football field. It seems to work because gold-plated clients are lining up for his services.

Richard’s dynamic, positive attitude and yoga-based methods have recently been gathered in an iBook entitled Say Goodbye to Lower Back Pain, part of an “in the works” series that will also say goodbye to sciatica, shoulder pain, neck pain, and plantar fasciitis.
