Here are a few reviews from her students
5.0 out of 5 The level of teaching knowledge and commitment to students personal needs is truly exceptional. Paget MacDonald - 6 May 2008

5.0 out of 5 I have been a pupil of Cecily Sumner's for over 10 years and have found her to be an exceptional, intuitive teacher. I can happily recommend the Vinyasa Yoga School.
Francesca Stewart - 28 Mar 2008

5.0 out of 5 I have attended the Vinyasa Yoga School for the past 6 years. Tuition has always been person centred and aims to stimulate and develop the student both physically and mentally. We have the benefit of Cecily's breadth of experience and continuing personal development. Like anything - the more you put in - the more you get out.
Ann Ogle-Skan - 26 Mar 2008

3.7 out of 5 Cecily is a very knowledgeable yoga teacher, focusing not just on the postures and breathing but also providing insights into the philoshophy of yoga and explaining the teachings of some of yoga's leaders. The classes are small and worth the price charged. I would recommend Cecily's classes to anyone looking for good all-round yoga classes in the Godalming area. It's worth noting that later evening classes tend to be at the beginner level, so go daytime or early if you want to practice at a more advanced level.

1. What a beautiful place! To sit and meditate and hear the sound of the crashing waves was magical. It was a great experience, I learnt a lot, including getting my tongue round Sanskrit chanting. I intend to build new samskaras when I leave here.

Thank you

2. Knowing how much work goes on behind the scenes to present any holiday and yoga experience. I think a massive thank you. To practice, meditate, in quiet shady areas, and on the beach, and Oh ! those sunsets.
Thank you Cecily- It was great to be a student and really turn off for 5 days, great yoga. I have always loved the Sutras, and drew much from your interpretations of them. I would love to bring a group out here, and I am sure when they see my relaxed smile, at home they will all want to come, especially when I tell them about Nimali’s cooking.

Om Shanti – Jill Cook London

3.What a wonderful setting for a retreat. It is certainly everything that Cecily promised and more. Yoga practice on the veranda with the sound of the sea in the background was magical. I never actually thought I would be chanting the sutras in Sanskrit(although I still need to iron out a few pronunciations!!) by the end.
Nimali was always smiling and her cooking absolutely delicious. Thank you Cecily for every thing. I am going home re-energised.

4. I came on the retreat to re energise and kick start my yoga practice. It lived up to all that Cecily had promised. To meditate on the beach at sunset is a memory that will stay with me forever. A truly wonderful experience beyond all my expectations.
