Shakti meditation is the traditional Vedic form of meditation passed from a teacher to a student through an ancient lineage of yogic masters for thousands of years. This meditation came to our times in its pure and untouched form. 


Through a lineage of many great masters and yogis, the knowledge was passed on to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi who developed the world movement of Transcendental Meditation. Through him, the knowledge came to our teacher Ananda Vdovic, a well-known spiritual master, singer, and artist who has taught meditation around the world to thousands of people. Following the ancient lineage, Ananda has her own teachings called Shakti Yoga. In 2018 Marco received training from her as a meditation teacher and since then he is sharing the knowledge of mantra and meditation. Through an ancient Vedic ceremony every participant will receive their own personal sacred sound or mantra and will learn to meditate with it. 






Mantra meditation is a powerful practice from the Vedic tradition. In a traditional ceremony, a personal mantra will be given directly to each participant. Mantra is a sacred sound of power that can bring us deep into our inmost being. By meditating with the mantra internally, the mind gets drawn into the blissful silence of our true essence, leading us to states of deep transcendence and inner harmony.


It is a very powerful tool that has a beautiful, life-changing effect on every person and can bring a positive change in life within just a short time of regular practice. The most evident effect of this traditional technique is the release of stress and its substitution with happiness, joy, energy, clarity, creativity, and love, but also a long-term change in every aspect of one's own life. Pre-knowledge is not required and the entire process of learning is very simple as the meditation itself. This meditation requires no concentration or effort – it is easy to master and highly effective.


Recent scientific studies have proved the effect of meditation on the human organism.It has been noticed that during the meditative state the brain releases a pattern of brainwaves that is unknown in every other human activity. This particular combination of waves is the cause of the positive response of the organism which releases important hormones like serotonin responsible for a whole state of wellbeing.This study is very important because it states that meditation can also be seen apart from any mystical context even if modern science is just confirming what was already present in the ancient Vedic times.

Born and raised in Italy, Marco dedicated his life to the wisdom of Yoga by spreading it to people around the world. Today he lives in Zagreb with his wife Petra, taking care of different schools and programs dedicated to yogic education. He is the advisor for Croatia at the European Yoga Council, delegate of the European Yoga Federation, and international advisor of the World Yoga Council.

He meets eastern philosophies very young in the late ’80s and, since then, in his rich life experience, he had the opportunity to meet and work with many great teachers of many different traditions such as Iyengar Yoga, Shivananda Yoga, and Ashtanga Yoga. Besides his great knowledge of the asana practice and anatomy of the human body, he is a passionate meditator, meditation teacher, and philosophy scholar in the field of Patanjali Yoga Sutras. In the nineties, he received his education in yoga from Carlo Patrian, the teacher who, after spending many years in India in contact with the most renowned yoga teachers of the19th and 20th centuries, was the first person who brought yoga to Italy in the ’60s. After several years of study in direct contact with his teacher and mentor Carlo, Marco received the diploma of Yoga Teacher in Milan at Carlo’s “Istituto Yoga”. In 2005 he moved to Croatia where he was invited to teach and soon after he developed the first Croatian teacher training program for yoga teachers according to the high international standards of the European Yoga Federation, Yoga Alliance, and International Yoga Federation.

In early 2012, he opened the Pink Elephant Yoga House with his wife Petra and, together, they created a new program for yoga teachers called Pink Elephant Yoga Institute as well as a three-year program called School of Consciousness dedicated to the practice of yogic philosophy. The Institute is registered by the European Yoga Federation and recognized by the “World Movement for Yoga and Ayurveda” and “World Yoga and Ayurveda Community”.
