Viktor Uygan is the Co-Owner of Konnect Pilates
and the Inventor of the Balanced Body Konnector
The Konnector is a single-rope pulley system with loops for all four limbs. The patented design enables the independent yet simultaneous movement of both arms and legs while the user experiences constant proprioceptive feedback through the single rope. This innovative concept came from his Konnect Method. However, Viktor’s journey to the Konnector and his Konnect Methodology grew from many roots.
Viktor’s formal movement studies began in dance as a young boy with ballet training in Turkey and Italy. With multiple certifications and mastery level ballet training (Cecchetti technique and American Ballet Theater curriculum), along with over 15 years of a successful professional ballet career, Viktor shifted his focus to the kinesiological side of movement.
In 1992, Viktor started studying with the BodyCode System and Gyrotonic® in Italy. He was introduced to Pilates after moving to the US in 1993 and studied for six years before he was certified in 1999 from DK Body Balancing through the University of Nevada, accredited through the Nevada State Board of Physical Therapy. Viktor is grateful to have had the pleasure of learning from many great mentors in the industry during these last twenty years of teaching. He has been a Balanced Body Master Instructor since 2012, teaching the entire Pilates comprehensive, Anatomy in 3D, Bodhi, MOTR, and CoreAlign courses.
Intertwining the foundations of ballet artistry, anatomical structure, and kinesiological functionality, Viktor explored and expanded on his origins of movement to create his Konnect Method. He is now traveling worldwide with Pilates on Tour and movement conferences, training instructors on a wide variety of new and innovative exercises with the Konnector, and his Konnect Method.
