Yoga Sociale


“Man is by nature a social animal.”

Yoga Sociale was born from the idea of creating a space to allow participation in cultural and holistic wellness activities.

Yoga Sociale is a social space where yoga is used to increase our sense of self, sense of others, sense of connection and sense of community.

Laura Ronca

I have always practiced yoga throughout the years. My life’s journey has taken me to many shores and given me such rich memories of epicurean delights and lasting friendships. Since 2009, after obtaining a degree in Film Production Technology in Miami, I worked as a storyteller in various countries of the world. After returning to Italy,
I earned a Master degree in Farm Management and Agri-food and I started to work professionally in the wine business as export manager. I had a career full of important meetings for my cultural and professional growth; trade fairs, seminars, international wine tastings, travels and sales. I was invited to host major radio shows and I was included in many articles of international wine magazines.

At times my life created envy in others, the photos portrayed me at private parties on the rooftops of New York or in Micheline Star restaurants in Chicago, at the openings of the Wynwood art galleries in Miami or in some elegant historic building in Prague. Anywhere in the world one would see me with a designer suit and a drink in hand. I must admit, I enjoyed it! To maintain certain standards, I began to push my body and my mind more and more as my schedule was more demanding. More working hours, less hours for rest, I had come to live at the airport, traveling over 180 days a year. The constant changes of time zones did not allow me to manage my biorhythms and my diet had become the last thing I was paying attention to.

In 2018 I was diagnosed with Cancer. Discovering the disease really scared me. Cancer is always something that happens to others or to someone you know, but when it happens to you, your perception of everything changes. I immediately reacted by starting to practice a lot of sport, taking care of my diet by gradually becoming a vegetarian, I started to slow down. After the operation and the chemo therapy, I left for Goa, India where I attended a 200-hour TTC. Yoga, along with swimming and martial arts, has accompanied my life for over 20 years, but I decided to find out more about the world of yoga.

Upon my return home I started practicing and working as a Yoga teacher in psychology and physiotherapy centres, hotels and studios. While teaching in Portugal, focusing on a Downward Facing Dog and a Chaturanga I met the love of my life, that would then lead me to move to the beautiful San Francisco Bay. Passionate about teaching, I decide to leave for Mysore, India to deepen my knowledge of yoga and I accomplished another 500-hours and a specialisation in Prenatal, Postnatal and Yoga Therapy teachings. I currently own Yoga Sociale in downtown Hayward.


William got hooked on Yoga instantly when he first started his practice in 2005.

He deepened his Yoga experience via Yoga teacher training and has been teaching throughout San Francisco Bay Area since 2006.

His inspiration comes from his love of being around people, enjoyment of physical movement, and his love for really awesome pop and dance music. Inspired by his favorite local gurus, William’s style focuses on breath, vinyasa flow, wicked core workouts, and lots of laughter.

And on the flip side, William has recently developed a passion for Yin Yoga. So if you are looking for a physically challenging practice, building/maintaining core strength, not afraid to sweat while flowing to infectious grooves, or just looking for a super chill Yin Yoga experience, Will’s classes may just be the right fit for you. William is a RYT-500 teacher with over 15 years of teaching experience. When he’s not on his mat, William spends his time creating fabulous content for his TikTok and Instagram pages under “spiritual gayru.” He shares his simple happy life with his husband Aaron and their two furry babies Rocco & Baby Gurl.

Aaron’s passion for helping others, especially those within the LGBTQ+ community and its allies.

Aaron’s classes are about movement to breath and a deep exploration of your Kosha’s in understanding what you need in order to migrate closer to your best life.

Developing a sensitivity and relationship to self that allows you to move in freedom and minimize suffering. Hopefully you’ll be dazzled by Aaron’s amazing playlist and moved in a way that explores freedom in a holistic sense of health; physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and socially.
