How it all started
After an intense Yoga-seminar in the mid-1980's, the vision arised to offer high-quality products based on the knowledge of Yoga and Ayurveda which can support people's health, wellness and life-quality. Soon after that, in 1986, the company Sat Nam Europe was founded - at that time by three partners. Presently, Sat Nam Europe is located in the northern part of the beautiful Nature Park Odenwald in central Germany.
The name SAT NAM is a Mantra, originally based on Sanskrit, and spoken today as Gurmukhi or Punjabi, mainly in the northern part of India. Sat Nam literally means "Truth" or "True Identity".
The owners of Sat Nam Europe, as well as several employees, are certified yoga teachers, and/or officially trained in Ayurveda, with partly over 25 years of experience. Today, we still let ourselves be guided by the same initial spark and inspiration.
Sat Nam Europe's Philosophy
Balance is the way and the goal - and leads to peace which starts right here, in ourselves. When we feel balance, peace, health, abundance and happiness within, and are aligned in harmony with ourselves and our surroundings, that peace will radiate to the outside and help making the world more peaceful.
That's why we believe that it is the strength, as well as the responsibility, of our kind of businesses to create harmony through action which is based both on respectfulness and ecologic economy. We emphasize on cooperation which creates lasting peace and mutually serves all. We do not represent any rigid directions or specific religious beliefs, nor any other one-sided interests, but look at the Universal ONE that is inherent in all living beings.
Our main focus lies in Yoga, Ayurveda, Health and Nature. In our growing global community, we work on making our products available worldwide and in more and more different languages. To let the WITH-each-other become a FOR-each-other and thereby overcome inner limits and outer borders, is part of our vision and the breathing soul of our products.
Since the early 1990's, besides serving as a retailer, Sat Nam Europe is mainly a wholesaler. Since then, a continously growing range of products is at your availability. Many helpful people and partners have supported the development of Sat Nam Europe. Especially our customers have supported us throughout with their excellent proposals and ideas, for which we are deeply grateful!
