Kellen Brugman is an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Counselor, Certified Yoga Instructor, writer, artist and Life Equals Ambassador based in Santa Barbara, California.

As a result of feeling stressed from a corporate marketing job, Brugman discovered yoga and quickly realized that there are no barriers while on the mat. The magic she felt while on the yoga mat followed her into her business and personal relationships, inspiring her to become a Certified Yoga Instructor. She then turned to Ayurveda—the traditional Hindu system of medicine based on the idea of balance in bodily systems that uses diet, herbal treatment and yogic breathing. She began studying Ayurveda in 2002 and completed a two-year intensive training at the Ayurvedic Institute in Albuquerque in 2009.
