Bio:
Ricardo developed his passion for bodily movement and it’s interaction with spirit and mind through Martial Arts, which was his first encounter with meditation practices. 
From the technical aspects of Martial Arts, Ricardo began exploring deeper into body mechanics and awareness, which eventually turned into a Mobility and Calisthenics practice. As he noticed that effective strength comes, not only from moving, but moving properly, Yoga became the vehicle to improve his alignment in Calisthenics as well as proper breathing in Martial Arts and immediately woke Ricardo’s love with it’s focus on balancing body and mind.

With a particular approach into practice that involves both holds and flow, Yin and Yang, Ricardo turns a Yoga session into a fun combination of effective strength and flexibility that dance along with the breath and proper recovery. The above aiming to prepare the body to help the mind to easily go into a deeper practice, by activating and balancing it’s energy/chi flow, while at the same time building a solid base for other Yoga styles and day to day activities.

As a yogi, both on and off the mat, Ricardo declares himself a perpetual student, always open to learn different ways and points of view to grow his practice. This can come from different styles of yoga, or even other disciplines in movement.

About:
Join us for an adventurous retreat in the heart of the Yucatán peninsula! This active holiday will be a unique immersion into the Mayan culture and traditions including a special Dia de los Muertos celebration. This all-inclusive AdZENture will include adventures in the lush jungle, admiring one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, soaking up the sun during our ocean excursions and experiencing the ancient practices of the locals in the area, from music and dance to the delicious cuisine, dating back thousands of years! This is not your typical yoga retreat, so be prepared to be active and adventurous…but don’t worry, there will also be time for yoga, rest and relaxation at our beautiful oceanfront villa!

Bio:

My name is Lindsey Conroy and I’m a 500hr E-RYT from Montana! I am a traveling yogi, constantly on the move studying and teaching yoga as well as leading retreats all over the world. My home base is a small village in Slovenia which is where I spend most of my time teaching locals and travelers while hosting adventurous yoga experiences in the pristine natural setting of the Slovenian Alps! When I’m not in Slovenia, you can find me teaching yoga in Austin or in Bellingham, WA at various studios as well as for my Experiential Wellness Company, AdZENtures. AdZENtures bases our experiences on the idea that yoga can be a compliment to any individual’s lifestyle and can be adapted to fit each and every person. This is why we started hosting our ‘Yoga Experiences’ back in 2015, as a way to make yoga accessible and applicable to everyone, even non-yogis. We incorporate an aspect of the local culture, nature and yoga into all of our experiences such as Yoga, Hiking and Breakfast Tacos in Austin, TX,  Mountaintop Yoga at Sunrise in Slovenia or Yoga and Craft Beer in Astoria, OR (to name a few). Our retreats are the same! You can expect to receive a unique EXPERIENCE on an AdZENture which is why we offer more than yoga. Our intention is to give our guests a glimpse into the local culture, encourage you to step out of your comfort zone to try something new (on and off the mat) and discover something amazing in this world that you never knew existed before your AdZENture! If you’re looking for an experience that incorporates yoga with our other values of adventure, nature, culture and community, you’d be a great addition to any AdZENture!

Bio:

I love my work. I believe that it is much richer than hip bridges and single leg lifts. For me, it is about stretching more than you can reach, which requires curiosity and a desire to go beyond the limitations of present knowledge and experience.”

While teaching or being taught, I am always encountering new ideas, approaches, and energies. I love creating a calm and centred space where my students can embrace everything Pilates. I encourage people to go beyond the familiar. Picasso said, “action is the fundamental key to success”. Choices and actions are intimately linked. Being open in your mind and body is just one of the amazing things Pilates can give you.
