Welcome to Body Happy - The Center for Embodied Living with Erin Geesaman Rabke and Carl Rabke

Hi there! We're so glad you're here.

Welcome to Body Happy With Erin Geesaman-Rabke and Carl RabkeWe are Erin & Carl, Embodied Life Teachers and Feldenkrais Practitioners, lovers of learning and life.

We're also parents, writers, bookaholics, and somatics geeks who are totally in love with each other.

We are deeply devoted to waking up.

We offer workshops, retreats, in-person and online courses and excellent private sessions in FeldenkraisEmbodied Life and Structural Integration. We also offer by-donation lessons in Embodied Meditation.

Ultimately, all of our work is about helping people learn to grow their embodied presence and their courageous kindness.

With unconditional warmth and with grounded, embodied presence, everything in life becomes less effortful, more pleasurable and totally workable. You not only heal injuries, pains, and unhelpful patterns in your body and your life, you become empowered to give your best to the world. And make no mistake—the world needs you at your best.

Welcome to our online home!


“Erin and Carl Rabke are two of the most awake, compassionate, and embodied practitioners I have worked with. Both of them bring inspiration, subtlety and exquisite nuance to their instruction. They are deeply in touch with their audience and I would entrust anyone to their reliable hands.”

Diane Musho Hamilton, author of Everything is Workable and The Zen of You and Me
