About me

About me

My name is Karlijn (pronounced as car-line) I live in beautiful Costa Rica with my husband and son. 

I have studied and practiced Ayurveda for more than 7 years and I integrate Ayurvedic meals and lifestyle practices into my daily (family) life.


Especially after being pregnant and giving birth to our son Flynn, I realize how important our female body and all its functions are to our health, our planet, and our children.


In a former life, I was a professional athlete, and during these years, I wasn't worried about the long-term effect and what all this training was doing to my overall health.


I needed to finish my training (2-3x per day), and if I wasn’t able to accomplish that due to menstrual discomforts, I would take a couple of painkillers and go anyway. Not realizing the harm I was doing to my body and that by doing those trainings, I was actually depleting my body and pushing myself further away from reaching my goals.


My body ended up being so depleted that it crashed during my last race and left me on the ground with a broken jaw, elbow, and ego.


I decided it was time to make a change and start living by what I preached. I changed my diet and lifestyle to match the ancient Ayurvedic way of living.


To tell you the truth, I have never felt so fit. I now have tons of energy, okay I might not run a marathon, but I am so much more in tune with my source connection and purpose, which makes me truly happy.


I started Power Up On Plants because I wish peace, serenity, and empowerment for all women on this planet. Our self-healing abilities are so strong, and I can't wait for the moment when all of us are aware of our capabilities. 


Much love,
