INARU means WOMAN

Various languages were spoken by the indigenous peoples of the Caribbean. Having strong cultural and comercial relations with North, South and Central Native Americans, Native Caribbeans are most accurately described as multilingual. One of the various voices recorded is INARU, which was also an exclusive word to the women's language in Dominica. 

Regrettably named TAINO by archaeologist and anthropologist that viewed those peoples greeting Columbus in 1492 as extinct, our native ancestors were the first to experience the genocide of colonization. But we are still here. Over 500 years of biological and cultural mixing happening in the wombs of countless native women. As the poet Elizabeth Acevedo beautifully expresses "We are the unforeseen children." 

In honor of all the warrior women of this earth

INARU STUDIO

My name is LilianA

I am from Cupey, Borikén (Puerto Rico). My life has taken me on many travels, but the further I wander, the stronger the bond grows between myself and my ancient mother, my island, my home. Following my heart deeper into the study of what makes my family and island unique, I've focused my attention on drawing inspiration from our deepest roots, those of our native ancestors. BORIKÉN has inspired my ART, my WRITING, my approach to women's PHOTOGRAPHY, my YOGA/MOVEMENT/MEDITATION practice, and my CULTURAL reeducation.

My hope is to explore deeper meaning and connection to my homeland through art, movement, writing, and reeducation.

YOGA-Movement-meditation

Yoga is a physical, spiritual, and mental practice based in Hinduism and Buddhism. While the physical movements commonly referred to as YOGA are only a small portion of the practice, I have come to view them as a welcomed tool for preparing the mind and body for meditation. 

I have had 100+ hours of training in safe practice and practical uses of yoga applicable to all those who wish to calm their mind, body and spirit in hopes to help spread the benefits. 

 My teaching style is gentle and heart centered. I focus on slow and deep movements that help prepare the body and mind for focusing, relaxation and mediation. One of the highest priorities of Inaru Studio is creating accessibility to stress reducing practices for all women.

My work explores the mythology, divinity, and sacredness of the female through a Native and Afro-Caribbean perspective.
