Nicole Kuro, founder of Get Hot Yoga, is a proud second generation graduate from Tahoma High School and resident of Maple Valley. Coming from a long line of Chiropractor’s, Nicole has developed a deep passion for health and holistic living.
Before she decided she wanted to dedicate her life to yoga, She was in a dark state of her life after losing her sister to cancer. The devastating loss took a toll on her family, and it felt as if life was spiraling out of control. It was hard for her to find normalcy in her life…There was always something missing.
Soon she began attending college to complete her prerequisites for law school and began working as a paralegal at a personal injury law firm. Although she loved her team and co-workers, she began practicing yoga more then ever. Not only was it a stress reliever and a way to decompress from a busy, fast-paced day, it was also when she truly and deeply began to heal from the loss of her sister. It wasn’t long before Nicole had her “ah-ha” moment and realized that she wanted to build her life around her most favorite outlet. YOGA!
In early 2009 Nicole took a leap of faith, quit her 9-5 job and completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training with Ali Valdez, founder of Sattva Yoga.
At that time yoga studios were few and far between and she immediately knew she wanted to bring yoga to the place closest to her heart, where she was raised…Her hometown of Maple Valley! She wanted to make this lifestyle accessible to her own community and give the surrounding residents the opportunity to use yoga as their outlet in life too!
In November, 2010 Get Hot Yoga opened it’s doors and has been welcomed with open arms…more then she could have ever dreamed.
Outside the studio, Nicole is passionate about her wonderful, supportive husband. Without him running a business and being a mother would be nearly impossible! And of course her two beautiful daughters who she hopes to guide them to understand health and have a passion for LIFE and living out their true desires.
“happiness is a way of life. I have truly found my calling & in doing so have made my happiness. ~See you on the mat!”
