India Reinartz

Starting her journey when she was young, India immersed herself into a surf culture. She has guided surf in Morocco, managed surf camps in Portugal and Nicaragua, and has traveled all around the world in search for waves, culture, and exposure. Now she finds herself wanting to challenge her strengths and embark on her own business adventure, so India created Papaya Wellness, a dream of hers to teach, guide, and share her love for the ocean through playing in the waves.

Carly Chivers

Yoga combined with a dedicated passion for surfing has led Carly all over the world. She has been surfing and exploring Europe, North Africa, Indonesia, Hawaii, and currently Central America. Her love for the ocean influences and inspires her yoga practice. After years of study, Carly took the leap to become a 200-hour certified yoga instructor. Since then, she has been sharing her contagious love for yoga and the peace she finds on the mat with students on retreats and in private classes.

Testimonials

  • Review by Erin Gallagher from California, USA

    "I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed taking classes from you while doing the honeymoon thing in Gigante. Your classes were very inspiring and brought me a lot of joy and relief from my chronic back pain. Your natural exuberance for life and your yoga practice is contagious and I left each day filled with gratitude and an inner calm.Doing the 108 sun salutations on the solstice with you and Carly was amazing, one of my absolute favorite memories of our entire trip. Thank you for providing such a sweet little oasis in the papaya grove; it is a very special place."
