PAPAYA WELLNESS is the result of
years of dedication to health, balance,enjoyment and discovery.
Papaya Wellness was founded by India Reinartz with a vision of beautiful simplicity. Papaya Wellness is an experience in a breathtaking location, filled with warm-hearted people and a healthy, balanced and nourishing lifestyle for the mind body and soul. Our purpose is to bring these elements to others and enjoy the experience of living life fully, out loud, as a collective.
India and Carly joined forces creating a dynamic duo of strong and independent surfer women pioneering a remote Nicaraguan village set in the midst of world class surf. Carly and India bring together all elements through yoga, surfing, adventure, joy, balance and infectious positive energy. They are now ecstatic to be travelling the globe and sharing their favorite spots with you!

Wild and Free
I have the fire, the passion, the curiosity to explore, see the world and the desire to revolt the expected.
With a surfboard under one arm and a handful of adventure in the other, I embarked on a long journey of self exploration, self teaching and risk taking to create the life I dreamt of.
People tell me everyday "you have it figured out", " you live the dream". My response comes from a point of view, because I've been there too. I felt the fire burn inside to change, explore and learn what I can do. The best thing to do is start... You dictate the direction of your life, you control the decisions of everyday actions, you have a heart that leads the way you just need to listen. If it feels right move forward, face fears and trust. The unknown is scary but rewarding. How ever it turns out it will be great.
Papaya Wellness was born. My business partner Carly Chivers and I had the same dream. We strive together to build a company with values and goals that support our travel and spread the gospel of a living healthy balance lifestyle. We encourage people to see that this world we breathe, eat and sleep on is filled with opportunities, adventures, knowledge.
The possibilities are limitless!

“Each breath is a gift and each new day is a fresh opportunity to create the life that you want. Live with joy and express your love"
I walk a path of self inquiry and yoga has been a beautiful tool in this ongoing exploration. Yoga started as the balancing medium for other physical pursuits in my life and has now become a deep source of nourishment and the grounded platform from which I move.
Surfing lights my fire and has led me on adventures all over the globe. My love and connection to the ocean is probably my greatest influence and source of inspiration in my yoga practice. Sharing the ocean, its power, immensity and beauty is a true and humbling gift. Everyday I am amazed at the parallels and lessons we learn from mother ocean and how they can be applied to bringing mindfulness, an open heart and a free flowing attitude into all moments in life. I am learning to let go more and more by the day..riding the waves.
I am currently in my final year of study in Transpersonal Psychology and Counselling. I am a passionate advocate of personal empowerment and I believe that empowered women will heal the world. Through connection, honesty, movement, play, love, compassion and creativity we support and bolster eachother to walk the path of self realization. Teaching, sharing my passion and encouraging you to find what it is that inspires you, is what keeps my stoke going!
