"Move yourself, so people can be Moved by You"

Konnector®

Konnector® enables full-body workouts by Konnecting arms and legs through a single rope system that will allow you to unlock the full potential from your reformer.


Created by Viktor Uygan, Konnector® takes Pilates to a dynamic new level with independent and simultaneous movement of arms and legs. The single rope system engages your entire body (lift your legs, and you’ll feel it in your arms!), providing constant proprioceptive feedback and facilitating stronger core activation. A simple locking mechanism returns Reformer to standard Pilates functionality.

 

Turn your existing Balanced Body reformer into a versatile exercise apparatus without losing traditional Pilates functionality or repertoire.

Testimonials


tamara aprea pilates loft studio

“I can’t even express how amazing the experience was to be able to take my favorite piece of Pilates of equipment and open up the possibilities for more movement functionality and diversity. Being able to utilize the single rope system highlights and challenges some of those compensation patterns we find ourselves in often. It allows for our nervous system to be stimulated in a way that restores function back into our bodies.


I truly feel the Konnector opens the door for Pilates instructors to be re-inspired, to explore new options and possibilities in the Pilates environment that takes clients through an experience with joint relationships and how we manage our mass under certain planes and loads.”

Konnect Method

 

The Konnect method of movement, though unique in approach, is a movement system which integrates the best of the Pilates method with the emerging biotensegrity and fascia science. At the heart of the Konnect method of movement is Viktor Uygan. Viktor’s varied movement experiences include his time performing as a professional ballet dancer, teaching up and coming ballet dancers, and owning Konnect Pilates studio, where he is a master instructor for Balanced Body. Viktor’s movement mind and inventors mind come together in his Konnect methodology and have led to the creation of the Konnector, a strap system for the Reformer that integrates the four limbs. Before exploring the Konnector, lets take a step back and explore Viktor’s methodology of movement.

“I want people to move efficiently, without using an apparatus such as the Reformer. When people are working on a  Reformer, or other training apparatus, it is important that they move in the apparatus, as opposed to the apparatus moving them.”


Viktor Uygan

 

Mover, Educator, Inventor

 

Viktor Uygan’s long history as a professional dancer and in fitness led him to Pilates after moving to the United States in 1993. Since then, he has become PMA certified he is an owner of Konnect Pilates in Southern California for the past 16 years. Viktor is a Balanced Body Master Instructor and teaches courses in Pilates, Anatomy in 3 Dimensions, BODHI, MOTR, CoreAlign, and the Konnector. He specializes in the training athletes and dancers and holds certifications with the Ki-hara technique for resistance flexibility and strength training as well as the AmericanBallet Theater National Training Curriculum for young dancers. Viktor presents worldwide with his workshops and his innovative invention The Konnector.

The Konnect method of movement believes that the more the body can connect, through the limbs to the core, through the limbs to each other, more responsible and receptive they become to integrated movement patterns. This in turn leads to more efficient and integrated full body movement bringing ease to activities of daily living, while allowing the body to perform at optimal levels.
