If the oldest, lowest leaves are turning yellow, it's normal and natural. Just cut them off. If all the leaves are turning yellow it can indicate over watering, sunscald (hostas grow best in the shade) or it could indicate a disease called crown rot. There's no remedy for crown rot so I hope that's not the problem!
