We’re going to Aruba! This small happy Dutch Caribbean Island is one of perpetual perfect summer. Pristine white sands meet the most beautiful blue waters, along coastlines dotted with secluded coves and spectacular limestone cliffs. Aruba is true island paradise and the perfect backdrop for a spectacular yoga retreat vacation.
Suzanne will be your guide for a glorious 7 days and 6 nights as we soak up the sunshine and prana, plus swim, snorkel, sail and practice yoga each day.
We have just 12 rooms so please reserve early!

Suzanne McCahill Perrine, ERYT200, RYT500, began practicing yoga in 2005 as a supplement to her dance and Pilates training and teaching. In 2006, she met and began studying with Desiree Rumbaugh and fell deeply in love with life again, blown away by the power of yoga to touch the heart. That same year, she opened her first yoga and Pilates studio, and over the last 12+ years has offered daily public classes workshops, retreats and teacher trainings.
Suzanne’s teachings fuse inspirations received from every-day life with a solid bio-mechanical awareness and therapeutic alignment based asana. This combination helps students to get in touch with their bodies – replacing discomfort and fear with awareness and love – and elevates their appreciation for their bodies so they can live skillfully and with ease and learn to navigate the world with the tools and teachings of yoga. Suzanne is also a registered Pilates and Thai Yoga Bodyworks teacher and completed the Living Ayurveda Course for ProHealers in 2017 with Cate Stillman. Suzanne continues to be captivated by the teachings and practice of yoga and delights in sharing with others.
