About me

My name is Jakub Cerulík and I am an ICF accredited somatic and life coach (Prague, Somatický koučing s.r.o.), certified facilitator of therapeutic dance (Brno, Move Art s.r.o.), choreographer and dance performer.

Thanks to many years of practice in the field of somatics and embodiment, I believe that the body hides the answers to our deepest questions and solutions to our most difficult challenges. That's why I help my clients listen to the body as an essential source of information in the decision-making process, achieve their life goals and regulate their nervous system.

Jakub Cerulík - Somatic Therapy

My background

While studying History of Art at Charles University in Prague, I studied the philosophy and psychology of art with a focus on the therapeutic overlap of art and rituals of different periods and cultures. While studying Dance Theater and Performance at the University of Performing Arts in Bratislava, I learned the philosophy of somatics and embodiment through approaches such as Laban movement analysis, Alexander technique, Feldenkrais method, Bartenieff fundamentals, body-mind centering, Skinner releasing technique, contemporary dance and contact improvisation. In my artistic practice, I focused on the use of expressive therapies (dance-movement therapy, drama therapy, psychodrama) and coaching in the creation of works of art and, on the contrary, the use of artistic procedures and practices when working on personal development. Later, during ICF accredited training in Somatic Coaching in Prague and Intuitive and Therapeutic Dance Facilitation in Brno, I adopted a non-judgmental approach and consistent work on the client's resources. I have continuously supplemented my education with many courses, workshops, seminars, articles and books focused on the field of somatics, embodiment, dance, psychology and expressive therapies, and I continue to develop my coaching skills through regular supervision.

I work integratively with experience-oriented methods using the body, breath, voice, word, imagination, object and space, while the long-term basis of my practice is creative work with the principles of somatics and embodiment in the coaching process. By working with self-expression tools, I enable clients to touch deeper levels of consciousness, and by moving from a mind-oriented conversation to a more complex body-oriented experience, I lead clients to holistically (body, mind, emotions) informed decisions and work on themselves.

The main purpose of my work is to bring people into contact with the body and its natural wisdom, which is an essential source of information in the decision-making process and in finding solutions on the way to life's dreams.
