Meet TriYoga Davis Students

Every so often we introduce one of our students. We want you to get to know them so you'll feel comfortable coming to class for the first time. OR if you've already been coming, we want you to learn more about who may be on the mat next to yours.

This time I'm happy to introduce Rick Palkovic.

A recent retiree, Rick wonders how he ever had time for work. He plays guitar and mandolin in various local performance ensembles, and turns his hand to songwriting and composition. You can spot him around Davis riding his bright green recumbent tricycle.  

Rick describes TriYoga as "a calm pool in the rushing stream of life." He enjoys the community of a class setting, too. "Sure, I could work out at home by myself, but there's a camaraderie when you're working with others. And, it's different from a workout at the gym. You're not wrestling with weights and machines, but only with the dynamics of your own body. I guess that's part of the inward-looking, spiritual dimension of yoga.”

See one of Rick’s performance ensembles, Tree-O. Or, better yet, listen to one of Tree-O's songs!

More about Rick from the Tree-O website: Rick has kept his musical muse going over the years by playing a little bit of everything. Yep, there he was in the polyester disco outfit playing guitar on Chicago covers in the early ‘80s (who knew? not me!). And there he was picking up Dobro and mandolin when the bluegrass band needed another instrumentalist in the '90s, all the while keeping up his interest in jazz guitar.

Multi-talented, huh? You can join his mailing list at "Contacts" to learn when he is playing around town with his wife, Jamie Knapp, another TriYoga Davis student, and musician George Haver.
