"It started with a desire of getting physically stronger. With Jennifer's help and counseling, it became so much more than that. Yoga with Jennifer is a complete body-mind training that lead me to be not just stronger but healthier. The private setup, tailored to my needs and schedule, makes it easier to keep the commitment I made to continue exercising and maintain a healthy life style. Plus, it's fun and I'm ending each class with a smile on my face!" Irina J., MD, PhD, Greenwich, CT


"I am so happy to have discovered Jennifer O'Connor and √Član Yoga. This beautiful studio is a little gem tucked away just off Purchase Street. With great attention to every detail, Jennifer has created a warm and inviting space. Jennifer is a such a lovely, compassionate teacher. She gives very clear instructions and adjustments that will literally make you sigh. I've taken yoga for more than 30 years, and I learn something new in every one of her classes. Thank you so much for opening your studio in Rye. We are so lucky to have you." Ellen Blaufox, LCSW-R,, Rye, NY


"Working out in my own home provides me a level of convenience that you cannot get by working out in gyms or sports complexes. I would unequivocally recommend Jennifer as well as others at Élan Elite. They are professional, caring and very competent. They are extremely knowledgeable and work with you on your specific needs. They make exercising fun!" - Frank Corvino, President and CEO Greenwich Hospital, Greenwich, CT
"Over the last four years, I have been working out three times per week with Jennifer, and we have strengthened my core to the point where the back pain that plagued me for decades has vanished. Jennifer gives me a vigorous workout even while working around various old athletic injuries--I always feel challenged yet safe. Our workouts keep me very fit and energized for my challenging and physically active work life and weekend activities." - Martha Z., School Administrator, Scarsdale, NY

"Working with Jennifer has revitalized and renewed my life. Jennifer has inspired me to not only reach my goals, but to raise the bar. She helps me get into the right mindset to push through and stay on track instead of giving up. Élan Elite has helped me identify where I am falling short on my goals and make adjustments to meet my needs."

M.T.S., Teacher, Harrison, NY

"This is my fourth go around with health and fitness. I now realize that I am the only one in control of my life and goals and can make them happen. The dedication and decisions I make day to day is the miracle of my success, not some pill you buy on infomercials or "diets" that deprive me. A few of my proudest achievements are losing inches, wearing clothes I never thought possible, gaining confidence, running a half marathon and still keeping a commitment. I like the one-on-one attention and feeling comfortable in my surroundings."

Karina Lambert, Professional Stylist, Greenwich, CT

"I am a Believer! I am 72 years old. Before Élan Elite I felt 65, now I feel 48! I will ski this winter (with total knee replacements) after a four-year absence thanks to Élan Elite. It is a very personalized program and Jennifer is wonderful, smart, listens, knows how to motivate you and knows what you need. I love the convenience of working out in my own home. My proudest achievement is that I wish to continue exercising because I feel better." - Claire Lamele-Santucci, MD, Bronxville, NY
"I wanted to get back to my pre-pregnancy shape. I got there and then some. I'm in the best shape of my life because of Élan Elite!" - Regina Smaguine, Asst. Professor Columbia University, Cos Cob, CT

"I began training with Élan Elite two years ago when I was eager to begin a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Working out has never been an enjoyable experience for me but the passion and knowledge Jennifer brings to our sessions is truly inspiring."

Lila S., Student/Dancer, Larchmont, NY

"I have worked with several trainers in the past so I definitely have a frame of reference. What makes Jen special is that she is FULLY VESTED in my health and that is a unique quality. She is more concerned with making sure I have a complete workout than she is about counting the minutes. My wife is starting with Jen next month. I think that says it all!"

Eric Siles, Founder/Partner Mediamax Network, Rye Brook, NY

"I knew I needed a trainer on a committed schedule to achieve the fitness level I wanted. Then I met Jennifer of Élan Elite who would come to my home and provide a personalized program for strengthening, stretching and stamina training. What a find! Experienced! Professional! Knowledgeable! I'm on my way to my goals!" - P.M., Financial Services Professional, Bronxville, NY
