An Inspirational Chat with Kate Horning


What brought you to the mat for the first time?

A desire to connect with myself and my breath. The first time I attended a yoga class, I was so intimidated and worried that I wouldn’t be able to keep up. What I discovered is that yoga meets you right where you are. I take the same approach with health. It’s not about perfection, but instead, taking things one day at a time. Doing the best you can every single day and being totally present in the moment. It has transformed my life.

How do you set intentions in life?

I set intentions in life based on how I want to feel and what I want to experience in life. I think the most powerful thing we can do to make changes in our lives is to simply focus on being a little better today than we were yesterday. It’s all about being present and truly enjoying the moment, focusing on the only person you can change – you.

What do you do to inspire your community?

I live it every day and simply share that. I try to inspire my community by showing them that I am on the exact same journey that they are.

What inspires me?

My passion for living, my healthy lifestyle and sharing that with others truly keeps me inspired daily. I love seeing people who get what I am trying to do and embrace creating their own healthy lifestyles!

What is your favorite mala and why?

The Clarity Mala. I have always known what I wanted to do with my life and have always chased my dreams but occasionally, I need a little reminder to be thankful of everything I have in life. The clarity mala brings positivity into my mindset and the rich purple color reminds me that I am powerful and have a purpose to serve.
