Online Training

June 10, 2017 10:23 pm

If you are interested in training in the flavour of Physical Alchemy, both Frederik and Craig are currently taking online students. Frederik’s training will focus primarily on the Harmonious Strength and Repatterning Stretching syllabuses, while Craig’s will focus on the Daoist Physical Cultivation syllabus. Dave is currently not taking online students.

Online Training with Craig Mallett

If you are interested in practicing in the way that I practice I am now taking students. It will require long term dedication with sufficient will power to maintain a daily practice and a huge amount of patience. To be a student in this method is not an easy task. The work is slow – I am not interested in quick fixes. Think months and years rather than days and weeks. This is not about performance, health or fitness – even though some of these things may improve as a byproduct. This is about self-cultivation and I will act as a guide in this process. This is not spiritual work but will function to adequately prepare an individual for spiritual work if they wish to engage this type of practice at a later date with an appropriately skilled Teacher. All teaching is done via the internet and as such is available to anyone with an internet connection.

What to Expect

You will need to have a minimum of 45 minutes per day to engage in the practices. This will be separated into 3 sessions of 15 minutes. Each session can be done at any time during the day but must be done every day. Drills are simple and repetitive – we are doing an exploration of the inhibiting factors in our self and the conscious installation of particular qualities necessary for a greater feeling of vitality and aliveness. Practice time will also increase gradually over the years, as habits are set and lifestyle permits. Most of the practices will be basics from the Da Xuan tradition, which I have permission to teach from Serge Augier.


I do not wish to take any anonymous people as students, so we will need to meet via video call so I can get an idea of what kind of person you are and what you’re after with your practice. If this kind of practice seems like a good match for you we will then proceed with building a practice routine. You will need a Google Drive account so I can share documents, images and videos with you. You can click here to create an account if you don’t already have one.


Student fees are $3600 (AUD) per year, paid in advance, and not refundable once the training has begun.

Online Training with Frederik Beck

I am beginning a new phase of experimentation within the Physical Alchemy system. Just as Dave has brought Stretching into the Physical Re-Patterning Work paradigm, so now I seek the same with strength training (virtuously blended with multiple stretching methods, coordination training and exercises for the structural balance of the physical body, of course).

What I teach is drawn from my studies in Medicine (Msc. Medicine), physical culture (gymnastics, strength training and stretching) and my own experimentation. I have also augmented my research by studying methods such as: Stretch Therapy, Emmet Louis´ M3 and Craig Mallett´s Chinese Stretching Syllabus.

During 2016-2017 I became the second person to complete a full apprenticeship in Physical Alchemy.

In my cosmology training is primarily with the individuals unique patterns and gifts in harmony with their goal/direction – then secondly focused upon general physiology and programming. There cannot be one exact recipe because everyone responds differently.

Spaces are limited given the nature of such individualised training. If you are based in Europe meet-ups may be possible.

Those wishing to be part of this next phase of experimentation please feel free to contact me with your questions to see if the training will fit with you.

Fees are 600€ for three months of training, and are not refundable once the training has begun.

Payment to be made via Paypal.
