Welcome at Alosteo

osteopathy for the singer

"The best cello maker will not make the best cello player. Nonetheless, the best player needs the best instrument. Up to now, singers have had no luthier.

Méthode Cordier shapes the body in order
to make it the best living instrument."

SPECIFICITIES OF THE MÉTHODE CORDIER

Body work through proprioception exploration
Acquiring full body control through the physical understanding that muscles
are working fully when they hold no tension and can go willingly from full contraction to full relaxation.

 

Respiratory work
Aiming at suppleness, flexibility and strengthening of muscles

 

EXAMPLE OF A SESSION
Centering self: mind and body
Perceiving bodily tensions
Whole-body proprioception work through engaging and disengaging muscles

Engaging proprioception of the respiratory system
Breaking through mental inherent fears
(of messing up with the vocal technique)

Bringing the diaphragm, intercostals, abdominals and
   perineum to their full flexible capacity
Physical training of the core aiming to full control of the area
(full scale of contraction and relaxation)
