Achiever's Success Story

Integrated Holistic Solutions Customized For Every Individual

When Chandana Mannedi embarked on setting up the first Flex Pilates studio in Secunderabad, a decade ago, little did she know that it’ll carve out such a distinct story of success. As someone who was born with a case of debilitating psoriasis that cast a dark shadow on her life throughout her childhood & growing up years, all she wanted to do was guide people to rise above their pain and eliminate it. Intuitively, she knew that shadow is the result of light and she followed the path of healing for herself going wherever the light led her. She chose to make the shadow of pain her guiding light and fought ferociously back to wholesome health.

For someone who was devastated when the doctors told her that she had to abandon her aspiration to be an athlete when she was training studiously to be on the top of her game to the much sought-after Pilates & Mind-Body coach that she is today, her life is what inspirational stories are made of. When you meet the full of beans, verve and vigor Chandana today, it is difficult to imagine that she was close to being crippled in her teens. She went to the other end of the globe to train with the best in Physiotherapy and Pilates in Australia. Her deep involvement in the subject and her dedication to get to the bottom of the art & science of Pilates & Physiotherapy impressed the faculty at Stott Pilates immensely and she rose to the top of her class with their close mentoring. Chandana had found her magic cure – she attained her goal of being so strong and so fit that she felt a strong urge to return to India to guide people in pain find their own magic formula.

Over the years, Chandana Mannedi arrived at integrated holistic solutions customized for every individual. Just like how one size doesn’t fit all, her therapies are varied and highly personalized for different bodies. After making her first studio a huge success, she set up a high-end studio in Jubilee Hills in 2018. Flex Pilates had arrived and leading it to make a mark in her chosen field is Chandana Mannedi.

Her primary motivation has always been to eradicate pain by understanding its journey & path has established her as the most preferred and most referred Movement Therapist & Mind-Body Coach. She likes to call herself a Pain Detective as she tracks the route of the pain to its origin, gets a grip on how and where it all began, uproots it and eradicates it once and for all with guided movements. 

She has emerged as the most prominent Movement Therapist, Pilates Coach & Mind-Body alignment expert in South India. Her business quadrupled during & after the pandemic with health becoming the most sought-after wealth in the world.
