PAPAYA WELLNESS is the result of
years of dedication to health, balance,enjoyment and discovery.
India Reinartz founded Papaya Wellness with a vision of beautiful simplicity. The combination of life in a breathtaking location, warm-hearted people and desire for a fulfilling healthy lifestyle seemed the natural evolution here in Nicaragua and thus, Papaya Wellness was born. Our purpose is to bring these elements to others and enjoy the experience with them.
India joined forces with Carly Chivers to create 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 all elements together through yoga, adventure, balance and infectious positive energy.

I had the fire, the passion, the curiosity to explore, see the world and revolt the expected.
With a surfboard under one arm and a handful of adventure in the other, I course on my 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 from a point of view that I've been there, I felt the fire burn inside to change, explore, 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 myself had the same dream. To build a company with values and goals to support our travel and spread the gosspil about they importance of a healthy balance lifestyle. To encourage people 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 advocate for women’s empowerment, health and creativity as a tool in self realization. Teaching, sharing my passion and encouraging you to find what it is that inspires you, is what keeps my stoke going!
