Inhale Miami Owner
Rikki Kamensky is a Yoga Instructor, Licensed Massage Therapist, entrepreneur, the sole owner of Inhale Miami, a multi-purpose Holistic space in Miami’s Little River district and founding member of non-profit Yoga Kidz Inc.
After opening Inhale in September 2015, Rikki saw the need for affordable yoga in the Little Haiti area and now offers a free weekly yoga class for those who can’t afford yoga, as well as Free Yoga for Autism and coming in August, Free Yoga for Veterans. She opened the non-profit Yoga Kidz Inc. in 2015 to bring awareness to the importance of diversifying the yoga community.
Living, working and studying in NY, she has developed an expertise in finding ways to incorporate yoga, meditation, massage, acupuncture and nutrition into urban life – both through teaching groups and working privately.
Her deep belief in the “yoga for everyone, everywhere” approach led her to start ‘Inhale Brooklyn’ and teach in numerous yoga studios, warehouse spaces, corporate settings and even conscious raves around NY.
In her work, Rikki draws from many influences, inspired by her extensive training in a wide variety of fields including psychology and human sciences at CUNY, Dharma Mittra Yoga Teacher Training (LOAY) and a Holistic Massage Therapy degree from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine.
After moving from New York to Miami in January 2015, she opened Inhale Miami in September and has been yoga-ing it up ever since.
Rikki is the proud mother of four year old Elijah and is absolutely thrilled, entertained and challenged by embarking on this journey.
