Tulkin pitää puhua ja pysyä keskittyneenä pidempiäkin jaksoja. How to Relax for Better Concentration-kurssin avulla opin hauskalla tavalla avaamaan ääneni ennen puhumista. Kurssille opitun hengitystekniikan avulla taas pystyn helpommin keskittymään keskusteluun, myös vaativammissakin tehtävissä.

You want this, if you’re looking for program for a “Team Spirit” -day or something a bit “out of box” for a coaching day. Or just a fun night with friends! Warm recommendations!

Bastiaan held a Didgeridoo workshop for the Filosofian Akatemia team (15 prs.). It was a perfect activity to start our Christmas Party: new thoughts about good breathing (and good life), tools for our people to cope with stress, breathing techniques for public speakers and trainers, and above all, experimenting with the Didgeridoo. Useful and fun! And Bastiaan himself was a good showman and wonderful personality! ?

Bastiaan is a patient and approachable teacher. Thanks to his long experience, he has a lot of knowledge and he is able to give it forward.

With the help of Bastiaan`s tutoring, I found my motivation again, got back to practicing and have advanced rapidly. I purchased a Carbony Slide Didgeridoo from Bastiaan and it has been a great solution for me. I am happy to recommend Anthony if you need any help, advice or inspiration in the didgeridoo world.
