This fall, Ridgefield’s Enchanted Garden Studios launched “The Yoga Garden” led by Tricia Keane as part of its class offerings. Classes are designed to serve people of all levels of experience and ability with an eye toward a gentle, therapeutic and restorative approach. 


Tricia Keane, who has taught Hatha Yoga for the past 12 years, leads the group of instructors, including Valerie Rich, Christel Autuori and Leigh Scott for adult and teen classes and Corina Mihalchik-Renak and Michelle Desimone for the children’s classes. Classes for adults, children and teens began September 16 with ongoing enrollment . “The Enchanted Garden” began as a public access television show based on the parent-child music program Judy Hirt-Manheimer developed in 1989 to teach music to friends and their young children. The Enchanted Garden Studios has since expanded to its two current Ridgefield locations and now offers arts-based early childhood programs from babies through preschool, children’s gymnastics programs, dance, theater, music and voice lessons, yoga and Zumba for adults, summer programs, a recording studio (audio and video) and birthday parties.


Cost: $15/preview class; $18/drop-in class; $15/class with 10-class card. For more information and schedules, call 203-431-3350 or visit EnchantedGardenStudios.com.
