Aloha and welcome to the Yoloha family. We are honored you decided to visit us! Yoloha was created out of our families passion for yoga, surfing, sustainability, travel and the outdoors. Yoga + Aloha = Yoloha. Aloha is more than just a hello, its sending and receiving a positive energy. Aloha is living in harmony. When you live the Spirit of Aloha, you create positive feelings and thoughts, which are never gone. They exist in space, multiply and spread over to others. We love to spread Aloha everywhere we can and hope you will too.
