Wellness seems to be the new buzzword and for good reason. While many verticals such as spas and wellness travel have been affected adversely, others, especially health and wellness products as well as alternative healing modalities such as yoga, meditation, psychotherapy, etc. have seen a massive surge in interest. These techniques have made a quite a difference in people's well being. So, she started her own series of courses for which she took up the name 'Happy Soul' in 2016. She had started several courses in reiki, shamanism, magnified healing etc. The kind of response she got was fascinating and most importantly how all that made a difference in people's lives.

Pooja has dedicated 12 years of life in research and certifications in various fields of healing, wellness sciences and nutrition into creating Happy Soul, a wellness wonderland. Branching into various verticals from a multi-vendor online portal that gives you access to the best in organic and health products and services across the country, as well as retail shops for which franchise models are available, to production of her own range of spices, incense and other products under the label Happy Soul. She is now set to expand into other verticals of wellness as well which include a health channel, wellness centres and more.

"I am now set to expand into other verticals of wellness as well which include a health channel, wellness centres and more. The beauty & distinction of Happy Soul is that it caters to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness in all forms. It's not just the need of the hour, it's a 6 trillion dollar industry with a phenomenal growth rate, and the future," says Pooja Bedi.

They are a multi-vendor platform focussed on the vocal for local theme with strict guidelines, standards and quality checks for all products and services listed on their platform.
