Writer. Foodie. Yogini.

Angela Derecas Taylor is a second generation American of Greek and Italian descent. She hails from 1960’s Greenwich Village, NYC, where she was raised in a family of restaurateurs. She is co-founder of Key to the Castle Workshop.

A huge thank you to all at The Moth, The New Rochelle Council on the Arts, Trinity St. Paul’s Parish, the close to two hundred fifty members of the audience, my amazing band of volunteers, and the brave storytellers who threw their names into the hat! By all accounts the evening was a huge success and I cannot thank you all enough for making my dream come true – to share the magic of storytelling on such a grand scale with the community I cherish, the city of New Rochelle. As my tenure working alongside the city’s mayor for the past seventeen years winds down, let me also take this opportunity to thank Mayor Noam Bramson for his support of my goal to bring The Moth to New Rochelle.

And, speaking of the end of this administration being near, I will be attending the NRDCC November 15th dinner honoring Mayor Bramson. Click below to get tickets. 

More gratitude abounds as Key to the Castle Workshop – where writing, art & yoga co-mingle – celebrates one full year as a company. I am thankful to our community of workshop participants so far, and look forward to welcoming more writers, artists and yogis/yoginis into our sphere. We have a few spots still open for you to join me, Kathy Curto & Pat Dunn for a Yoga & Writing Day retreat at the New Dawn Foundation for an opportunity to get away from the noise and re-center for a day. You don’t have to be an experienced yoga practitioner nor writer to participate.

Also, an exhibition of Bill Papaleo’s art remains on display in the Rotunda Gallery through November 9th. Reach out to set a time to come view the exhibit with me.

Last and most definitely not least I offer my sincere gratitude to my growing Yoga community. It is my joy and honor to have the gift of your presence at my Yoga classes and I look forward to 2024 when I will have more time open to teach. The light in me honors the light in each of you. Namaste.
