Creator and teacher of Krautman Academy of Health
I am the creator and teacher of the Alar Krautman Academy of Health.
Massage, the traditions and therapies of different countries and health topics have been my life and passion. Having studied physiotherapy and the so-called medical massage gave the impression that an essential part in this kind of massage is missing: the importance of touch and the energetic part. About 30 years ago, my long journey to Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, Thai traditional medicine, Japanese medicine and finally Estonian traditional medicine began here. In all these traditions, the balance of the physical and energetical part has been important to me.
I don't consider myself essentially a tantra teacher, but the tantric way of life has been natural for me for decades, tantra has so many different aspects to learn about life that have given me more vitality, deep self-care and have made me want to make the world a better place. By now, I have taught various therapies in Estonia for about twenty years and given workshops in dozens of different countries.
I live in Lahemaa in the midst of ancient nature, from here I draw strength and balance. Here comes the realization that the world is abundant and wonderful.
At the festival, I do a men's workshop. My ways can sometimes be unexpected, but usually bring clarity and insight. I draw on my knowledge, cognition, experience and insight and try to convey them as clearly as possible.
I also make a special sauna ritual at the festival called Taiasauna. It is a journey back in time, we go to the sauna and I share an old story and at the same time we do it in the key that is appropriate today. This ritual is quite long, but the sauna is pleasantly warm and you can rest before and after each round (there are three rounds in total). Taiasauna has sauna customs that must be followed, then we get a truly powerful and deep experience (knowledge as an added value).
