The Bhole Baba Center of Cisternino (Brindisi, Apulia, Italy) is a beautiful ashram that has been created in 1979 as first Babaji ashram in the Western world.

Located in the countryside of Valle d’Itria, in Southern Italy (Apulia), a region known for its trulli, the characteristic stone buildings with a conic roof that are also part of the Ashram structure. The Kirtan Hall is hosted in a trullo, as well as the ashram’s dormitories and the kitchen area. The Ashram also features the Dhyana Yogi Dhuni built in 1990, where a sacred fire burns continuously, bridging Skies and Earth: it’s a place of union and meditation, where every day the devotees perform and offer rituals with devotional chants, according to the ancient Veda tradition. Other structures of the Bhole Baba Center, built by devotees over time, include a library, a chai shop, a yoga and meditation room, a book shop, as well as washing, farming and animal care facilities.

The ashram life is a school where to learn to know your own self, and to discover the presence of the Divine within you. It is the perfect setting for our auspicious journey, where there are so much blessing energies of Grace, Bhakti Yoga (devotion) and Karma Yoga (offering each action to the Divine).



Akari, originally from Japan, is an experienced yoga instructor, multi-instrumentalist, body worker and energy healer. Her self-enquiry began when she traveled around Southeast Asia and Africa by volunteering and helping people which led her discover the yoga system. She has been teaching asana, pranayama, meditation and philosophy in different courses and training programs over the years, and her passion extends to chanting mantra, kirtan, music, mudra, mythology and stories.

"Yoga is a guidance tool to open our full potentials to say YES to life. Life is a gift to be embodied with joy. All the practices that we do, including asana, breathwork, chanting and music are the medicine that supports us on the journey, helping us to connect deeper within and around. Freedom and love for all beings arise from the churning ocean of the heart. The heart is the key for happiness in life. In Tantra, there is a saying of "Bhukti, Mukti." It means that worldly fulfillment and spiritual liberation go together, we can totally have a fulfilled material life with work, family, school, children, relationship etc, but at the same time we can be spiritually liberated within with compassion, love and ease."


Davide D’Agostino, originally from Italy, works with healing elements of water, air/breath, sound and music. He is a rebirthing breathwork facilitator, Wataflow (water massage therapy) facilitator, multi-instrumentalist and a creator of Tantric Handpan music.

He was a master diving instructor and sailor in the past; he spent many years working and living in Caribbean Sea, Mediterranean Sea, and Red Sea. The lifestyle was challenging physically, mentally and spiritually, then some life-changing events followed. He was initiated to the study of Buddhism and different kinds of meditation. Following the inner calling, he continued his study on yoga, Tantra, rebirhting breathwork, and Wataflow healing therapy. With his years of experience of mastering the breath under water, and all the tools and practices that he has been benefited, he is dedicated to support and guide people to find happiness in themselves and in their life.

"Breath is a powerful healer that helps to release stuck energy and old patterns and transform the mind. And when you are held in the water, it is an experience of unconditional love itself. We need to be aware that water has a memory, we are all made out of water, and our intention is powerful. The same for air and all the other elements as we all are each little universe. The universe is love. The experience of totality is love. We are love."
