What is an AdZENturer?
Meet our team of AdZENturers! We are a group of like-minded individuals who all have a passion for authentic and fun experiences. We live life with passion and curiosity and have a need for exploration, adventure and learning. We aim for unique experiences with genuine humans and those are the moments that define our world and who we are!
We live to explore the world around us and find intrigue in what is different, unknown, and even scary…because we know that we are on a journey to observe, to learn, and to interpret, in order to become more educated, more understanding and more appreciative of this wonderful world and the humans and creatures that cross our paths and fill our lives.
Keywords to describe an AdZENturer: traveler, explorer, lover of life, lover, friend, enthusiast (of any kind), story teller, genuine soul, yogi, foodie, loyalist, adventurer, creator, supporter, encourager…the list goes on and on…
Meet our Team of AdZENturers
Our Founder and CEO (Chief Experience Officer), Lindsey Conroy,
Lindsey is an avid traveler and has designed a life that is centered around movement, travel, unique experiences and social interactions…and yoga. She has been practicing yoga for the past 13 years and after a few years of practice, decided she wanted to learn more while having no intention to teach…that changed very quickly. She received her teaching certification in 2011 and has loved the path that yoga has taken her down since diving deeper into the lifestyle and practice.
After 6 years in the corporate world, gaining experience in Marketing and Business Management, Lindsey decided to pursue her dream of becoming an entrepreneur and focusing on her passions. In 2014 she left the corporate world to focus on yoga full-time. In deciding to do so, she spent the next 11 months traveling around the world to teach and study yoga. During this time she discovered her passion for outdoor yoga as well as the main location for our international AdZENtures Retreats – Slovenia.
In 2016 she landed in Austin where she officially began the creation of our Yoga Experience Company, AdZENtures. Lindsey currently spends half the year in the U.S. and half the year abroad leading international Experiential Retreats on behalf of our team, primarily in Slovenia.
She is very passionate about travel, adventure, nature and yoga; by leading these AdZENtures she is truly living her passion. She also loves her dog, friends and family 🙂
As CAO (Chief Adventure Officer), Jordan is in charge of designing most of our unique and memorable adventures. He has dedicated his life to travel, exploring new places, seeking out unpaved paths and finding those special experiences that are discoverable to those who are prepared to take risks.
Jordan is a professional skydiving instructor, deep sea fisherman and experience provider. He lives a life of adventure by pursing his passions of moutaineering, speed flying and base jumping. He is great at discovering rugged and awe-striking locations for our AdZENturers and creating unforgettable experiences that challenge your comfort zone! He loves to learn new things and has become quite the assistant brewer, fish smoker and chicken coop architect! A man of all trades and one we are so lucky to have on our team!
He wasn’t always into yoga but being married to our Founder and CEO, that was bound to change. He’s incorporated it into his wellness routine which has helped his body recover from all of the strenuous work he puts his body through for work and pleasure. Jordan adds that sense of adventure and challenge into all of our experiences and supports our guests to do the same!

Sebestyén, we call him Šebi, grew up in a kayak but later fell in love with a whitewater SUP. Šebi is an ISA certified SUP instructor and owner of the Bovec SUP company in Slovenia.

AdZENtures has partnered with Šebi and Bovec SUP since the first year it was open! Lindsey and Šebi have been working together to bring awareness to both SUP and Yoga…so it works perfectly to have a program that combines both.
