Organic Alchemy

an international yoga school

Immersive journeys around the world

We welcome you to unique and authentic locations around the world, from Paris to Barcelona, India and soon Mexico. Our immersive journeys are timeless spaces in which to immerse yourself in an exploration of the self in the world. We offer a range of packages to support you every step of the way.

intentions focused on body experience and self-discovery

We share yoga in an approach between tradition and modernity, with the desire to accompany the rhythms of life and expectations of today’s West, while honoring the history of another paradigm in the East.

We pay homage to the cradle of India, in awareness of its millennia-old origins, and in all humility in the face of what has yet to be discovered, at the source of this fabulous discipline that is yoga.

Yoga is a path of initiation on which we accompany you step by step, heart to heart.

Self-discovery is the greatest gift you can give yourself: the discovery of your sensations, thoughts and emotions through physical experience and study.

Our mission is to transmit teachings relating to the culture of yoga in order to develop your personal practice, to connect you to yourself and to the world around you.

a unique experience

Each of our yoga courses offers a solid and rigorous foundation, so that each individual can develop his or her own identity. In order to best adapt to your needs, and with a view to pedagogical research, our training courses are offered in modules.

Our physical approach is based on three key principles:

  • The search for sensation to transcend illusion,
  • Fluidity, especially in transitions with lots of play on the wave,
  • Poetry, with a dreamlike universe to take you on a journey inside.

As for theoretical practice, study and the spiritual aspect, our experience in India enables us to present you with an incarnated vision of this other paradigm of life, and we thus engage in deep reflection to give more meaning to our lives.

Our 200-hour professional training is the best way to improve your yoga practice at all levels.

You’ll also receive personalized support to help you find the best way to benefit from our curriculum. Last but not least, our value-rich Organic Alchemy community and our network of teachers and alumni will make your trip a unique and unforgettable experience.

Engage in this introspective process to land softly within and soar voluptuously. We’re working to find our place in the world so we can better share what drives us. Whether you’re looking for continuing education or modular training, there’s no better reason to start this unique adventure with Organic Alchemy School.

The Organic Alchemy team

The Organic Alchemy yoga school was created by Maricha Dumont and Ola Jas, who combined their respective backgrounds – academic and rigorous on the one hand, artistic and playful on the other – to form an exciting joint project. With confidence and experience, they share their passion for yoga and invite students to travel within themselves and around the world. They develop modules on subjects they are passionate about and collaborate with exceptional speakers to offer the best to their students, and are constantly renewing themselves along the way.

ola jas

Founder and teacher

Ola discovered yoga as a way of awakening the intellect to another form of intelligence – emotional, sensory and bodily – in the practice of an art of living. For her, yoga is an aspiration to touch the essence of things, a stimulus to seek out the magic that can perfume daily life and open the heart. She uses various forms of embodiment, such as asanas, dance, acroyoga and massage. She encourages every student to be confident on the yoga mat and in everyday life, whether in the corporate world or at “conscious” festivals around the world. For her, connecting with the breath is a way of discovering something greater than oneself, and transforms movement into poetry.

maricha dumont

Founder and teacher

For Maricha, the practice of yoga really begins when life becomes difficult. She has experienced this from an early age and, thanks to the concept of alchemy, has learned to see every trial or event in a new light, to bring out the power that lies dormant in all of us. As a professional dancer with the Paris Opera Ballet, she discovered yoga during a trip to India. Since then, she has returned time and again to this land to study philosophy, ayurveda and obtain certifications in yoga teaching (Ashtanga, Hatha and Vinyasa). Her aim is to help students see that life’s greatest trials can become our greatest strengths, and that happiness is a choice. By combining the power of movement with the experience of breathing, it helps practitioners move through physical and emotional transitions with grace and fluidity. For her, alchemy in yoga is a unique experience of reconnection and transformation, where the beauty lies in finding one’s way in all presence. That’s what being an alchemist is all about.

Their testimonies
  • I had the great pleasure of training with Maricha Dumont in Yin Yoga ( among others 😉😍 ) and I can say with all my heart that this training was totally transformative! As passionate as she is passionate, Maricha expertly transmits the practice, the approach to anatomy and the philosophy of Yin yoga, while giving us the keys to be able to transmit it to others. You come away so rich and with the knowledge to share Yin Yoga. Maricha also urges us to continue our own exploration of this philosophy of life and remains totally available afterwards if we have any questions. I’ve been giving courses for a year and a half now and every time I have thoughts about what we’ve seen during the training and reflections that feed into my sessions. I wholeheartedly recommend this course!

    25H Yin
  • I took the 50h yin yoga course last winter and it was a real bubble of gentleness and learning. It’s very comprehensive, and the lessons given are precise, concrete and reassuring. Then you’re ready to share your passion for yin with others! I’ve also had some wonderful encounters, full of humanity. This gentle yoga practice is a source of daily well-being, and the kindness of the yoga teacher who teaches it, Maricha, makes this course a pure joy!

    25H Yin
  • I took the Organic Alchemy School’s Yin Yoga training in October 2021 with Maricha and was enchanted by the teaching! Maricha’s teaching is incredible and brilliantly balanced between the technical (postures, introduction to TCM…) and the more subtle, spiritual aspects. 50 hours of learning, practice, meetings and exchanges. Thanks to this training, I’ve been able to teach Yin Yoga in companies, studios and private lessons. Thank you again, and I recommend this course to anyone wishing to discover, deepen or teach Yin Yoga.
