About me

Hi, I’m Karin! I can’t wait to help you tap into your power to live in peace with unlimited freedom in your body, mind and soul. 

Hello friends!


My journey to health and wellness began as a little girl growing up in Sweden. I spent summers outside in the garden with my parents, planting and harvesting fruit and veggies. I also went hiking in the pine forest with my dad, picking wild blueberries and chanterelles. My favorite pastime was experimenting in the kitchen with my mom and creating dishes to share with friends and family.

In 2011, I earned a degree in the Living Foods lifestyle at the Ann Wigmore Institute. It was a big AHA moment for me. I learned about healthy living and that being my wellness advocate was up to me.
I started reading the labels of my household and beauty products. I tossed everything that had ingredients that didn't serve my body. I cut out all processed foods. I focused on eating fermented, sprouted, blended, and organically grown plants.

I felt alive, like a newborn baby. I decided to teach others about this lifestyle, so I attended Living Light Culinary Institute, where I became a certified Gourmet Raw Food Chef and Nutritionist educator.

Another spark came with the pregnancy and birth of my daughter Liv in 2012. I instantly knew that I wanted to create and become a healthy living resource for other mothers and their families. I also instantly knew that I wanted my daughter's name to be Liv, a Scandinavian name that means life. I felt alive. I was eating living foods and had this incredible little human living inside me. The Living You was born. I now had The "Liv" ing You LLC.

During this time, I also became a certified yoga and fitness instructor and started the pre and postnatal fitness company Fit4Mom Marin. It was a beautiful time in my life supporting mothers in motherhood and fitness.

After six years of ownership of Fit4Mom Marin, I decided to sell the company and focus more on creating healthy wellness events...I hosted and collaborated with amazing wellness professionals and created several smoothie resets, emotional wellness programs, cooking classes, yoga and meditation events, sound healing, cacao ceremonies, name it. I was a busy bee having so much fun serving others.

I have always loved creating and building community. I love the connections and support system offered to everyone. Unfortunately, in October of 2021, my life came to a halt. I had a severe allergic reaction and then got long Covid. My symptoms were scary. A few of my symptoms were loss of memory, a burning sensation in my head, brain fog, extreme fatigue, chest pain, and heavy cramps.

A friend of mine had great success with her health by working with a functional medicine doctor. I followed her lead to get to the root causes of my symptoms. I took several tests to check my hormones, gut health, heavy metals, etc. The tests showed that my body was out of balance and that I had brain inflammation.
I forced myself to slow down repeatedly. I focused 200% on healing myself and followed everything my doctor asked me to do. I was willing to do and try everything to feel better. I just wanted to feel like myself again.

A friend shared about a breath-work and cold plunge facilitator course. I signed up—just to help myself—without intending to share with others. I also bought some crystal sound bowls—just to help myself—without intending to share them with others. I fell in love with all these modalities, as I felt a huge shift in my healing.

These wonderful tools became the catalyst for me to help others feel their best, just as they had changed my life.

After 1 1/2 years, I was symptom-free and back to feeling like my normal self. It was a big sigh of relief to be able to get back to work and share my passion for health and wellness with others again.

In 2022, our family made a huge dream come true. We built a retreat house in beautiful Belize right on the Caribbean Sea. Our retreat home is dedicated to your soul. A time to discover more of life...a real soul-adventure. A beautiful reminder that YOU are meant to grow and thrive full of energy. Not to settle. You are meant to live your full potential.

Just like all living things, YOU are supposed to flourish. The mission of The Living You LLC has always been to empower you to become the healthiest version of YOU.

I look forward to working with and supporting you on your health journey. Thank you for being here.

With love,
