300/500hr YTT And Prana Flow TT
I feel so lucky to have found Alessandra through a recommendation from another senior Prana flow teacher – my heart was longing to find a teacher I could learn from long-term based in London. Alessandra’s teachings are grounded in decades of experience, study and truly embodying everything that is passed on to students – it’s a magical experience being on her trainings and she holds space for her groups with strong loving boundaries which allow people to share and go very deeply. It’s been transformative so far and so blessed to have many more modules to study!

I am currently studying with Alessandra and Aditya school for the Yoga Advanced Teacher Training and since the beginning I felt I landed into the real, authentic yoga world. Alessandra has a huge extensive knowledge of all things yoga and she merges them perfectly into modern life. She is not only attentive to the single needs and goals but she is a community builder, bringing together like minded people to support each other along the way, but not only. The things I have been learning so far are countless. I highly recommend Alessandra and her school if you want immerse yourself into everything yoga.

Alessandra and Aditya school of training is absolutely amazing. 100% taught by Alessandra herself who, is a more than a teacher in every sense. She is a highly experienced teacher who imparts all of her years of knowledge and wisdom with her students in such a personal and professional way. I cannot recommend her highly enough and feel truly blessed and grateful to have her guide me on my journey and will continue under her guidance forever and a day.

I’ve taken both my 200hrs & further 300hrs YTT with Aditya and I am so grateful that I had Alessandra (and some very special guest teachers) share their vast knowledge with me. With Aditya there’s a unique integration of the physical elements of yoga asana as well as a full range of the energetic and spiritual elements. You’re given a solid grounding in every element of yoga from intelligent and creative sequencing and the art of adjustments to a delicious deeper dive into the beautiful practices of Tantra, Kryia and Bhakti yoga. I’ve not only received an incredible amount of knowledge and wisdom from Aditya, but I’ve also become part of an amazing community of beautiful and supportive souls that have been on this journey with me.

I cannot recommend Alessandra’s teacher training course highly enough. She is creative and inspirational in her approach and I have finished the course feeling energised and excited about both yoga and teaching. The course is challenging (there is a lot of work both written and practical) but incredibly interesting and I have felt supported in my learning throughout. Alessandra makes the experience fun and enjoyable and she has a real talent for bringing all the students together to facilitate them bonding and working as a group. This has been one of the best things I’ve ever done. I am going to continue my yoga learning with Alessandra.
Melanie Sharpe, Cornwall 2019
I feel truly blessed to have found Alessandra teaching at the light centre in Morgate. I started attending Alessandra’s classes and quickly fell in love with her teaching style. I had wanted to learn more and delve deeper into the magic of yoga for some time as I have been practising for many years. I felt a connection with Alessandra and heard that she offered a teacher training programme. I signed up to the 200hr course and have just completed. I learned SO MUCH. Alessandra is such an authentic teacher, she teaches straight from her heart and you cannot help but become as enthralled as she is with all things Yoga. The course covers so much and does so with care and consideration. I am so grateful to have attended and completed this course. I would recommend it to anyone.
Vikki Holder, London 2019
I had looked for several years for the right yoga teacher training and with Aditya Yoga School I finally found it!
The course for me was life changing.. it packs in so much information and practical techniques as well as opening ourselves up to be the best version of ourselves to be able to feel ready as a vinyasa teacher.
Alessandra’s passion, knowledge, experience and strict but fun and holistic approach shines through and is why I feel lucky enough to have found this course.
The pace of learning is well planned as is the support throughout from both Alessandra and the mentors. Plus the added bonus that the location and environment in which it is held are delightful. I’d highly recommend learning here at Aditya Yoga School.

The last 3 years of my life have been enriched by Alessandras’ teachings. I began with Prana flow foundation and then enrolled straight onto 200hr TT with her school Aditya. Im forever grateful for having found a wonderful human being who passes on and shares her breathtaking depth of knowledge and wisdom to which I aspire to. She is authentic, loving, caring, supportive and soooo much fun!!! Alessandra has an infectious loving presence about her. Once you start this voyage of discovery with her you don’t want it to end….and it doesn’t as the aditya school provides a wonderful sense of community. I hugely recommend her courses to anyone who has the desire to delve in and immerse themselves to deepen their practice/teach in yoga. Alessandra, thank you. Xx
Antonietta Samwell, London 200hr5th Intake and Pranaflow TT 1st intake
Alessandra is an inspiring, motivating and brilliant teacher. The trainings she offeres teaches you much more than how to be a great yoga teacher. It is a transformative path of discovering your true potential in Life, your soulful purpose. Once you study with Alessandra, you just cannot resist her “contagious” positivity! She is incredibly knowledgeable and all her teachings are insightful, deep and fun too. Ever grateful and honoured to be statudying with her.

From the initial telephone conversation to the continual sustenance provided far beyond graduating from Aditya Yoga school – my experience has been outstanding – rich beyond my conceivable expectations I feel most fortunate to have experienced Alessandra’s gentle, supportive, depth of expert tutelage. The breadth of understanding and knowledge imparted is remarkable. The practical materials and tools are excellent and subtle teaching sublime. Aditya, really is a traditional school delivered in a perfectly modern and accessible manner. Aditya School provides a community in every sense and it continues to provide me with positive experiences.

“Doing the Yoga teacher training with Aditya Yoga School was one of the most incredible and enriching experiences of my life. The course gives you a strong practical and philosophical foundation of what Yoga really is. Having Alessandra as a teacher is a unique opportunity to live Yoga. She is passionate to the bone, charismatic and very creative – she guides you through a deep and unpredictable journey of self-discovery and hidden treasures that makes you want to come back for more. The technique you learn isimpeccable and the team of mentors are very supportive and attentive throughout the course. After this wonderful training, I can assure you that you will become the person you have been searching for. “

“I can’t recommend the 200TT course highly enough! I had attended Alessandra’s classes at the Light Centre in Islington and was mesmerised by her captivating energy, so I booked the course on a bit of a whim and didn’t really know what to expect. I was totally blown away, any expectations I had were exceeded. I instantly felt like it was a safe, fun, supportive environment to learn in with like-minded people.
Alessandra took us on an incredible journey, sharing her knowledge and teachings of this incredible science and ancient philosophy. There’s so much information on the subject matter that it can be a bit overwhelming at times, but the course was broken down into chunks that make sense to digest it in, logical layers to build upon as we moved forwards.
I started the course wanting to deepen my practise and ended the course transformed (but always transforming), with a growing yearning to keep learning and confidence to teach and above all, a group of wonderful friends.
Alessandra is a very strong being, with a strong offering of guidance, if you like her practise and her classes you will love this course!!”
Lauren Havard, London 200hr YTT 3rd Intake
makes our modern understanding of yoga limited.
Alessandra’s peaceful quest is to shift our perception of what Yoga really is and to offer the whole spectrum of techniques
as opposed to focusing on only one aspect of this wonderful discipline. What makes her teachings interesting is the fact that one is empowered by getting familiar with richness of the Yoga tradition . The real and feel-right way to live Yoga is what you get when you choose to go further with her. Strength, balance, inner listening and peace within is what this course with Alessandra offers. That is what I have gained, the light to a way of life. And I never looked back. Thank You.”
Giusi Coppola, London 200hr YTT 3rd Intake
“The 200h YTT with Alessandra is undoubtedly an intense experience on many levels. It spans a wide range of topics from a playful, creative asana practice to the spiritual aspects enshrined in seminal yoga texts such as the sutras and the Upanishad, from meditation and mudra techniques, to adjustments. It requires a commitment of focus and dedication, but is rewarding beyond the investment.
All the materials provided are filtered through the lense of Alessandra’s deep and broad first hand experience of yoga, and enriched with the wealth of her thirty years of knowledge of the subject.
Alessandra is more than a very knowledgeable teacher. She infuses all her teachings with passion, light and light-heartedness. She also knows how to coach each student to fulfil their potential.
The journey on the 200h YTT with Alessandra has undoubtedly shifted my understanding and love of yoga to new heights. Her teaching and presence catalysed some deep shifts in my life (including leaving my city job)! I wholeheartedly recommend her teacher training to all lovers of vinyasa yoga.
Caroline Bordas, London 200hr YTT 3rd Intake
“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds. Your mind transcends limitation, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” This quote by Patanjali author of The Yoga Sutras, wholly summarises my experience as a student on Aditya Yoga TT 2016.
The course provides a wide depth of material which piqued my interest at every corner. And just when I thought I had ‘covered’ a topic, I knew that there was much more to experience than all that I had read. The course is comprehensive and well structured with each module building on the previous, which gently guided me to the next levels of understanding.
The hands on teaching itself left me inspired. It comes without doubt that Alessandra has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. Her disciplined manner and guidance led me to experience vinyasa flow along with its asanas, at a different level threefold – physically, mentally and spiritually. Being easily approachable I felt I could ask Alessandra any questions around areas and experiences I needed help with. Saying that, Alessandra reminded me of the importance of empowering myself along this journey.
From the plethora of things that I learnt about yoga, I highlight but a few:
– A greater understanding of the human body- anatomically and physiologically
– A greater understanding of the subtle body – emotionally, energetically and spiritually
– The importance of the Five Elements
– A greater understanding of the circumstances and experiences we create
– A greater awareness of the One Consciousness
– The importance of intention, integrity and the higher truth
– Finding my own way in discovering myself to be a greater person by far than I ever dreamed myself to be.
Jasmine Singh, London 200hr YTT 3rd Intake
“The Aditya 200 hour teacher training course will give you not only the qualification to teach Yoga, but also the confidence within yourself that your understanding is based on a solid foundation of technique and knowledge.
“I’m so so happy I made the decision to start my yoga teacher training journey last year, I had been considering it for a while but nerves/confidence always held me back. After meeting you, Alessandra I knew it was the right time and the right course for me and I haven’t looked back.
It’s been absolutely a wonderful journey. I’ve met so many amazing people and made wonderful friends who helped and encouraged me along the way. I’ve learnt so much and look forward to continuing my studies to help me develop and grow as a teachers and as a student of yoga.
I must say I miss the group and miss our weekends together, we started to feel like a little family and it was so lovely being surrounded by people who share your passions and to be able to share thoughts and ideas.
I loved all aspects of the course, and found the anatomy so interesting as it’s an area I really didn’t have to much knowledge on, I also loved the philosophy discussions and the reading assignments, as there is so much to take in and learn.
Before you embark on training with Alessandra consider that time has to be dedicated to study/ reading and assignments/ self development; this however never felt too much and I really enjoyed everything we covered. This was everything I had expected and was definitely prepared to take as much from the experience as possible.
The course has also helped me learn a lot about myself and over the year I can see the positive effects the course was, and still is, bringing to my life in all ways. I’ve loved the experience from a personal perspective and I know it is something truly special.
I feel now that this journey is just beginning and that this was the very best start I could have had and I am so looking forward to continuing, taking with me everything I have learnt and to continue to learn from such an amazing person.”

“This teacher training is so much more than you are looking for. Come with an open mind and prepare to face your fears, come head to head with your personal barriers and explode through them should you choose. Yes you will learn to sequence asana, call the breath and structure a safe and functional yoga class, but this is merely the tip of the teacher’s iceberg. Dip in the ancient science of Ayurveda, allow your voice to resonate to the frequencies of sacred scripture, delve into the science of sound and energy, and generally begin to vibrate at a higher level.
This course offers you the chance to begin on a journey of personal discovery that does not end once you complete the modules and your exam. Take one small step forward on your path to becoming a yoga teacher, and one giant leap ahead in discovering how to live your personal passion. There will be highs, lows, thrills and spills but you will emerge enriched if you commit to the journey. This is the course for those who truly wish to embody what it means to be a modern-day yogi. Jump in with both feet.”
Anna Huddart, London 200hr YTT 2nd Intake
“I thoroughly enjoyed studying with Alessandra for my 200 hours teacher training. For me, there could have been no other teacher I would rather have studied with for my foundation course than Alessandra.

“Begin where you are and allow yourself to experience a transformative learning journey under the expert guidance of Alessandra Pecorella. If your asana practice has left you with a curiosity to understand more about the teachings of yoga and/or becoming a teacher yourself, this course will give you excellent ground knowledge of the various aspects including pranayama, vinyasa sequencing, philosophy, mudras, mantras and meditation. These are all underpinned by the guiding principles of Ayurveda and how together, these teachings are so relevant for our modern lives. Integrated practical and theoretical knowledge are entwined with creativity, passion, movement, fun and infectious energy! This course is deeply enriching and will leave you wanting to explore this wonderful path further.”Emma Colwill, Cheltenham, UK
“Alessandra is the best guide I could have chosen to refine my skills as a teacher. She has a special way to distill all her knowledge about yoga (and Ayurveda) both in a serious and entertaining way. Knowledge seeps in without you even realising. If you’re looking for a serious TT with added fun and the opportunity to actually teach, then you’re in the right spot.”
Laurence Idezak, Teacher in Training 2013/14 from Brussels, Belgium
“Life Changing. Life Saving. Don’t even try and imagine your destination at the end of this incredible journey. It knows no bounds. Just let go and Vinyasa Flow. Expertly guided by Alessandra Pecorella and suffused with the wonderful transforming energy she creates within a group. I would highly recommend this course to the discerning yogini who wants to reach beyond asana.”
Ness Lee, London UK
“Anybody thinking of joining or enrolling on a TT, this is the place to be!!! The care to detail and commitment is just out of this world. It is all the extras that make this TT so special. I just love Alessandra bringing Chakras and Ayurveda into it as well. That was just the best bonus! The Course is practical and could be used for the rest of our lives and will not only improve our lives,but those of our students as well. Will always be grateful to Alessandra and Aditya Yoga School and I will for sure do many workshops and hopefully the 500 hrs with Aditya as well.
Alessandra your bubbly and caring nature and your lovely mentors that help with your course make us feel so special and welcome. Cheers to many many more years of training new teachers!!”

“I always loved yoga, Alessandra made me understand it too. Now, alongside my passion, I have the intelligence to sequence, to structure and to keep the enthusiasm alive for myself and others! Thank you Alessandra!”
Amanda Wilson, London
“Alessandra is a great and very supportive teacher . She focuses on the needs of each individual student and and helps them develop their physical abilities and bring to the surface their character, aiding them to become confident teachers. She has an in depth knowledge of yoga and Ayurveda and teaches them in an engaging way. She conveys information so you absorb it without even realising it. I highly recommend the Aditya yoga school and Alessandra, so if you are looking for a Teacher Training, then you’re in the right place.
