Holistic Wellness Coach and Media Personality Pax Tandon brings mind, body and spiritual healing to teens and young adults by applying Positive Psychology to real life issues. Prakriti from the Sanskrit language means “nature.” It is according to Hinduism, the basic nature of intelligence by which the universe exists and functions and is described as the “primal motive force.”
Tandon is an expert in Positive Psychology, which is the scientific study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive. The field is founded on the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play.
Tandon holds a Master’s Degree in Positive Psychology from the prestigious University of Pennsylvania. She graduated from the Wharton Schoolof the University of Pennsylvania with a dual degree in Psychology from the college.
Born in West Philadelphia to devoted parents, her seemingly perfect life was shattered at the age of 14 when the onslaught of major depression paralyzed her. Tandon broke free from depression during her experience on “Rap Around,” a local teen talk show. It gave her perspective on debilitating issues other teens were facing, and her ability to help and be helped by her peers. She had found her passion and calling in life: to use the media to help others flourish, specifically teens and young adults.
Tandon spent several years as a news anchor, host and producer at CNBC-TV18 in India. She also hosted “Spotlight on Bollywood” for Spotlight TV, and “Bollywood Hour” for JKS TV, both in New York City. She has made several appearances on Veria Living programs including “Over the Hump” and “Workout from Within.” She has also been recruited for International radio appearances, including “Weekend Blend with Orla Barry,” and “Lunchtime with Eamon Keene.” Pax is proud to lend her face and voice to Intellistreets, a lighting technology solution that has the potential to revolutionize the synthesis of safety, operations and entertainment across the globe.
Currently, Tandon is working on a pilot project where she guides local Philadelphia teens and their families to wellness using holistic methods, mindfulness and positive psychology. She sees traditional therapy approaches as working through obstacles. Using positive psychology, she places the emphasis on working around issues to garner quick results and happier people. Tandon coaches the teens and as transformations begin, they flourish and grow.
