Biography

Jamie McHugh, MA, RSMT is a Registered Somatic Movement Therapist (ISMETA), somatic coach, and fine art photographer living in The Sea Ranch, CA. He has been teaching movement-based work since 1979. Jamie developed and has been teaching Somatic Expression® for 35 years. This program is an integrative approach to the art and craft of embodiment.

From 1982-87, he was a National Endowment for the Arts Artist-in-Residence and a director of children’s dance theater in Wisconsin. He left the performance world to apprentice with dance pioneer Anna Halprin at Tamalpa Institute in California. At Tamalpa, he discovered movement as a transformative somatic art, and has been a faculty member there since 1988.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, Jamie has been on faculty at John F. Kennedy University in Holistic Health Education since 1991. He has also been locally affiliated with the Institute for Health and Healing and the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. He was an annual presenter of "Movement as Medicine" workshops for the Swiss AIDS Federation from 1995-2007. He also directed a Healing Arts Training Group in Germany from 1997-2007. Additionally, Jamie has been a guest teacher at diverse centers such as the Atelier de Paris, Bristol Cancer Center, Esalen Institute, Kobe University, and Stanford University. Since 2007, Jamie has also exhibited his fine art photography of the natural environment NatureBeingArt. He has recently completed his first book, "Restoring Original Grace: Movement as Medicine."
