What is the Aligned Flow Method
Your training is rooted in the Aligned Flow Method. An intuitive style created by studio owner Richelle Morgan and inspired by her years working with clients in the holistic wellness industry.
This style began to take shape during her years as a personal trainer. And she developed it further after graduating from teacher training and delving into the challenges she faced with traditional cues, alignment and postures. In her own body and those of her students and clients.
The Aligned Flow Method is an inspired blend of asana, Vinyasa flow, functional alignment principles and inspired transitions. Classes are guided in a way that makes sense to the body. With attention to the subtle nuances found in postures and transitions.
We pay attention to how the body moves and what needs to happen to get you where you and our students need to go with grace, strength and mindfulness. As a student, this allows you to discover how the postures and practice fits your body… rather than you trying to fit a one-size-fits-all style or posture.
As a teacher, this helps you give your students clear, direct cueing and information they need to build a strong foundation and flow through transitions with grace. You'll learn how to cue in a way that makes sense to your students and gives space for your own individuality.
The end result is more than just a yoga class. It's a yoga experience.
Our Teacher Training programs are recognized by Yoga Alliance, Yoga Alliance Professionals and Yoga Alliance UK and open to all levels and ages.
Embodied journey + transformation
We are committed to providing a supportive and inspiring experience. Our goal is to guide you through your journey while creating space for personal growth.
Our programs are led by a collective community of teachers who have been where you are and have been personally mentored by Aligned & Embodied Teacher Training creator, Richelle Morgan. You will be supported, encouraged and guided through your chosen program by teachers who are passionate about living an aligned and embodied life and who want to share their knowledge, experience, inspiration, humour and intuitive teachings with you.
Immerse yourself in the study and practice of yoga and experience the ability to delve into self-study, spiritual and physical growth while becoming a part of our beautiful community of graduating teachers.
Yoga Alliances + certifications
Our Yoga teacher training programs are part of the globally recognized organizations Yoga Alliance, Yoga Alliance Professionals and Yoga Alliance UK.
In 2019 we will be transferring all of our certification programs to Yoga Alliance Professionals due to their standards in certifications and how they choose who qualifies.
When applying for a teaching job, many studios do not require that you are aligned with any of the yoga alliances and there is a shift that is happening where many recognize that registering with Yoga Alliance does not indicate level/skill of teaching or teacher. What will land you that teaching job is how you stand apart from others and that is where our standards and teaching methods come into play.
We want to prepare you to audition or apply for teaching jobs with confidence. Whether they are in a studio or resort setting or you are creating a private yoga client base. The cues we teach based on the Aligned Flow Method and what we bring to the experience for our students is what will help you move ahead in your career and life.
Our graduates teach world-wide in studios, private training facilities, resorts, etc. And we have graduates that now assist in our YTT programs. We know that you can’t learn everything in the amount of time you are with us, because the teaching of this practice is a lifelong journey. This is why we have created a solid foundation of community support through our facebook group and online mentoring. Your lead teachers, assistants and the creator of this program, Richelle, will be available to you for as long as you need. We want you to succeed, this is our passion, and we hope to be a part of journey each step of the way.

Faculty & guides
My journey started over 18 years ago as a personal trainer. Movement had always been a part of my life and the transition into yoga was a much needed one. The shift into teaching and practicing yoga came at a time when the stress of running my business had wreaked havoc on my body, mind and spirit. Yoga played a starring role in healing my body and helping to manage an auto-immune disorder. It also led me to the beaches of Tulum where I hosted my first yoga retreat in 2010.
This was a life-changing experience that set the wheels of change in motion. Two years and three yoga retreat later, I made the decision to pack up my life in Canada and drive via motor home to Tulum with my cat and dog as co-pilots. My adventures in Tulum have led to the opening Yoga Dicha Studio and the creation of the Aligned Flow & Embodied Teaching teacher training program.
TEACHING STYLE: is based on the Aligned Flow Method and Foundation that I developed. Strong, playful and mindful with attention to alignment and deep connection to the heart. Be prepared to sweat, explore, and laugh.
YOGA OFF THE MAT: Travel, exploring new places, food... these are like moving meditations to me. But my biggest yoga off the mat moments come from my work with Pesos for Paws (my non-profit foundation) and Help Tulum Dogs (local animal welfare org.) and nurturing the pups I foster before they're off to forever homes.
Yoga has led me to find freedom on a physical as well as a spiritual level. Ever since I started practicing almost 20 years ago, I realized that yoga offers something different from other disciplines. Since then I have been able to open my body, heart, mind and spirit with deep connection, and I am more than thrilled to share this with others.
TEACHING STYLE: Connecting breath with movement is extremely important to me, and my classes are creative, smooth and sweet but also strong and introspective. I am constantly searching for new ways to explain alignment with clarity and purpose while respecting the living and forever-changing aspect of asanas.
YOGA OFF THE MAT: You'll likely find me at the beach spending time with my two children, husband and dog.
My first taste of yoga was watching VHS tapes in my bedroom because yoga was still somewhat on the fringe back then, and studios were not on every corner. And I was hooked! I had never felt anything like it! In 2005, I took my first TT, and realized that I was not just stepping into some poses, but exploring a whole lifestyle. In my training, I was introduced to Thai Massage and two months later, I enrolled in massage school. I graduated massage school in 2007 with over 1200 hours and specializations in Thai Massage, Relational Somatics and Craniosacral therapy.
These last 13 years of practicing, learning and teaching yoga and thai yoga massage has been a wonderful journey, full of beauty and challenges. I’ve traveled to India and Thailand to deepen my practice and learn from my teachers. And attended multiple trainings, workshops and retreats. I have happily and passionately shared yoga and massage with thousands of people across this big blue planet!
TEACHING STYLE: I strive to be open, and listen and let the wisdom of my body, and of our bodies speak. I will forever consider myself a student and continue learning and growing and evolving with this sweet gift of breath and movement, of yoga and massage.
YOGA OFF THE MAT: Travel and sharing my love and passion for this craft with my students.
After years of theatre and performing arts I discovered hot yoga practice and it changed my life. I moved to Mexico in 2013 and studied to become a certified yoga teacher. Once I became certified, I started traveling. From California to Madrid, Amsterdam, Colombia, Florida, Costa Rica I worked as trainer, retreat teacher, interpreter and chef.
My love for the practice and the people continuously brings me to looking for new experiences, where I can grow and humbly make steps foreword in my path.
WHAT DOES DICHA MEAN TO YOU: To me dicha means to evolve, a transformation, a new way to face life finding a light in every step of our path. It’s to embrace every experience with love and compassion. Yoga Dicha is where you can grow and are not alone.
