Journey to the Sacred Valley
Peru Retreat with Laura Teal and Amy Hogan

Join Laura and Amy on the adventure of a lifetime to the Sacred Valley in Peru! The Sacred Valley is a lush green valley tucked into the Andes mountains, originally known by the Incas for its fertile agricultural land and powerful spiritual energy.  Today, the valley’s rich history and culture provide many opportunities for exploration, adventure, and reconnecting to the beauty of Mother Earth.

During this 7-day retreat, we’ll deepen our yoga practice at a beautiful retreat center nestled in the mountains. Here, we’ll connect to the richness of Peruvian culture! We’ll explore our surroundings by hiking to nearby waterfalls, exploring local markets and villages, and taking part in cultural ceremonies.

We’ll begin each day with an energizing yoga practice suitable for all levels of practitioners, followed by plenty of time to explore or relax.  Three meals of nourishing local cuisine will be offered at the retreat center each day. Additionally, join in on an optional guided excursion into the surrounding mountains and villages throughout the Sacred Valley.  We offer yoga practices during some evenings, along with time to recap your day’s adventures. All excursions, ceremonies, and yoga practices will be optional…giving you the agency to choose your own adventure!  You also have the option to add on a 2-night trip to Machu Picchu at the end of the retreat.

We cannot wait to share this spectacular experience with you!  We know it will be incredible and life-changing to experience this beautiful land, its people, and its rich and ancient culture.  All are welcome!

The retreat center’s name translates as “love from the ancient forest.” It is nestled in an oasis of native plants and fruit trees, nourished by a magnificent waterfall in the Sacred Valley of Peru. This lovely spot is in the Andes Mountains and home of the twelve mountains known as Apus—“luminous beings.” Those who come to the center have the opportunity to commune directly with these mountains, as well as with the local curanderos and pacos (healers), who engage with us for ritual and Despacho ceremony.

The guests at this center enjoy delicious meals with locally-grown and lovingly-prepared ingredients. Each guest-room is a reflection of the Peruvian culture of the Sacred Valley. The entire center embodies kindness, love, and wholeness that seem to permeate the magical place.

I was introduced to the benefits of yoga in 2001, while living in Charleston, SC. I initially established a yoga practice to help alleviate stress and release tension resulting from daily life in corporate sales, but I soon discovered that the practice was much deeper and vast than I ever imagined! My curiosity grew, along with my dedication to a healthy, conscious lifestyle centered around yoga. After moving to Austin in 2011, I made the decision to leave the corporate world to spend precious time with my young children, while exploring different styles of yoga and meditation. I soon received my 200RYT certification through an Austin-based Hatha Flow program, then started Total Balance Yoga, a company that provided on-site yoga to local businesses. In 2015, I opened Studio Mantra, a Yoga and Wellness Studio in Northwest Austin that offered many types of Yoga classes, Pilates and Barre classes, Massage Therapy, Energy Work and Creative Workshops.

Shortly after opening my studio, I began studying with my teacher and mentor, Amy Ippoliti, an international yoga teacher/author/Earth activist in Boulder, Colorado. Through many trips to Boulder over the years, and an immersion training in Nosara, Costa Rica, I completed over 300 hours of training with Amy.  I treasure my time with fellow students and look forward to many more years of studentship with Amy!

In August 2020, I decided to close my physical studio (as a result of thepandemic) and transition to a Livestream and Outdoor yoga company called Mantra Yoga Collective. We’re currently offering around 30 Livestream classes a week, along with a library of On-Demand classes and 10 outdoor classes a week, including Aqua Yoga and Aqua Pilates in the heated pool of a private neighborhood club! The support from our community has been AMAZING, and I’m so very grateful to be a part of it all.

I would describe my teaching style as challenging, yet playful…motivating, yet mindful.  By linking breath with movement, I guide students through creative, flow-based sequences while offering insightful alignment cues and modifications. Most of my classes are theme-based with the goal of applying ancient yoga philosophy to modern day life; and I LOVE bringing in all types of music from DJ Drez to Bob Marley to Willie Nelson. I strive to teach to students of all levels and abilities and I aim to provide a space where all feel welcome and comfortable.

Laura Teal

I believe that yoga can help us access and claim love, acceptance, connection and other aspects of the Heart that are our birthright, our inheritance as humans.  I incorporate mantra and meditation, alignment work in the postures, dynamic and restorative sequencing elements, breath awareness, some corny jokes, and pep talks in my classes.  It is my hope that any one of these aspects of the practice can serve you as a pathway inward, to a deeper and more loving relationship with yourself. May that lead us to skilled action in the world we share.

I am certified at the 500-hour level thru the San Marcos School of Yoga (2017 – San Marcos, TX) and Yoga Yoga (2013 – Austin, TX) and am registered with Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT® 200, RYT® 500, YACEP® (I am approved to offer teachers Continuing Education course credit).  I am grateful to have incredible teachers to learn from, including my long-time mentor, Karlie Lemos. I would not be the teacher and student I am without my teachers, Christina Sell and Gioconda Parker.  The inspiration and wisdom from their lineage of teachings is invaluable to my life of practice. I also hold two degrees from Auburn University: BA in Art and BSBA in Marketing–War Eagle!

I grew up in Florence, Alabama on the Tennessee River. After college, I spent a few years in Chattanooga, Tennessee, before moving to Austin, Texas where I lived for nearly 9 years—the last 5 of which I spent steeped in care by the Mantra community. I have very recently (Feb 2021) moved back to Chattanooga to be closer to family and old friends who are my family.  It feels so good to be home, y’all. I enjoy frolicking in the mountains, hosting dinner parties, climbing on rocks, swimming in creeks, pulling weeds, watching the clouds after the sun sets behind Lookout Mountain, and I LOVE me a spontaneous dance party!
