Kundalini Karisa

Kundalini Karisa, a loving name that was given to me by those who practice with me. I am a international Kundalini science and technology (yoga and meditation) teacher that felt a calling to bring Kundalini science to those who are ready to learn life long tools that will drop self limitations, thoughts and feelings. I am the founder of Tool Box Method and Unum Heart Meditation Station. Tool Box Method is an umbrella method. It utilizes the science of Kundalini technology of fast acting, tangible and specific combinations of rhythmic patterns of breath work, hand mudras, body movement and vibrational meditation as medicine. I specialize in Kundalini science and sound as vibrational medicine. It is my passion to share my deep understanding of the positive effects my Tool Box Method has on the nervous, glandular and lymphatic systems because I know it will help people feel better quickly. I have expertise and a small obsession on how specific breath, movements, mudras (hand positions) and sound current stimulate the central nervous system and regulate the glandular and lymphatic system. Science says that when these systems harmonize then the left and right hemisphere neutralize into a steady state. This state is where we are able to let go of the stress, anxiety and depression. It is my understanding that the health of these systems contribute to ones ability to over come their challenges, regardless of what the goal of improvement is. It is my experience that the function of these systems distinguish those of us who live life well with Addiction, PTSD, Depression and or Anxiety on a daily bases and those of us that do not. I hold a MA in psychology and continue to move into a doctoral program in the fall of 2019. I have traveled all over the world to leaner the science of Kundalini yoga and meditation. I have over 2000 hours of training experience and 3000 hours of teaching experience under my Kundalini belt.

Kundalini science is a technology that offers specific tool to balance the brain, to cleans the glandular and lymphatic system and to strengthen the nervous system. When we keep our internal systems strong and working at optimal levels we are better at handling life’s stresses. Kundalini yoga and meditation releases deep stress from their minds and bodies. It decreases and most often eliminates depression, anxiety and other forms of deep stress from the mind and body. We use this science to experience our own vitality. I provide my “Tool box” method of techniques that release stress from the psyche. Using the the science of Kundalini, I have had the opportunity to create programs to help people to manage Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Autism, PTSD and Addiction. Tool Box Method helps people achieve an internal calm while connecting to deeper inner strength. My inspiration for creating these programs was drawn from my own life experience. 

When I was a small person I was diagnosed with dyslexia. It was the 80's, need I say more? Let's just say the education system wasn't what it is today. My early educational experience inspired me as an adult to better understand people with needs that don't match the average person's needs. This understanding inspired me to create the programs and to facilitate them in schools. Empowering young people is a great passion of mine and my programs do just that!

As a young adult, I was journeying through life with many addictions of my own. I also witnessed family members and close friends struggle with addiction, as a result my father drank himself to death. This is just one life of many in my life that addiction destroyed. Actually, from my prospective, I was surrounded by addiction. My programs provide fast acting tools that help people that struggle with addiction to calm their minds and to release the struggle. These tools empower those who feel powerless against their addiction. They are accessible to all people and they travel well anywhere. Addiction is not just about substance abuse. I am talking about anything we over indulge in that doesn’t represent our greatest potential.

Life throws curve balls sometimes. I believe on some level we all have experienced a trauma or two. PTSD is a little different in that the trauma that is experienced is so big, it creates imprints in the mind or new brainwave patterns in the brain. These newly formed brain patterns are not always desired. PTSD can result in continuing thought patterns that aren't relevant to present moments. PTSD keeps people feeling stuck & living a life that is not in service to their individual soul desires. PTSD is a distraction from fulfilling life's purpose. I have experienced PTSD and I am so grateful that I stumbled upon Kundalini science because it has provided me with a road map to managing, maintaining and almost eliminating PTSD. 

Throughout the years of studying I have mainly focus on the brain and behavior of those of us that have experienced life with heightened awareness and potential devastating conditioning. My "Tool Box Method" program gives tools to those who experience life with Stress, Anxiety, depression, Autism, Addictions, and PTSD.

It was 2009 and I found myself in a weird place in my life. Everything seemed to move slowly, as I studied this experience I soon realized that the life I had created for myself was not aligned with the life I so desired in my heart. After leaving my first marriage, quitting my job and selling my 10 year old business, I saved enough money to travel. Although I was in the middle of finishing my MA in psychology, I was in need of more; more information and more understanding and more depth. I set out for Greece, Costa Rica, Canada, New York and India, for the more.  Wow, did I find it! I studied with incredible teachers and health care providers that provoked a remembrance, an understanding, and an embodiment of a deeper level of profound authenticity inside my soul. I couldn't wait to share what was provoked inside of me with everyone I knew. As a student, I learned that Kundalini yoga & meditation is a science of self mastery. It is the method that makes people drop self-limiting beliefs. It's a science to self discovery to inner truth. It aids people's understanding and fulfills their destiny. I do my very best to bring the teachings of Kundalini yoga & meditation into a safe space, giving people an opportunity to rediscover the joy and wisdom that already lives inside of them. 

I created Unum Heart Meditation Station because I believe that Kundalini science and breath work are a vital part of experiencing a healthy lifestyle. My sessions are designed to detoxify the glandular system, strengthen the central nervous system, balance brain and strengthen the immune system on a physical level. My workshops, private sessions and classes are equally as powerful, on a mental and mindful level. Kundalini science helps to releases stress from the body and the mind. The practice provides clarity, it embraces one’s individual challenges and gives the practitioner a space to let go of the unnecessary clutter. They are created for every single individual. It doesn’t matter if you have never meditated before, or if you aren't trending with the newest yoga mat. My sessions are designed for all walks of life, at all levels.

What is Unum Heart?

Unum means one.

Unum means one. At One Heart or Unum Heart we practice of Kundalini science because it helps helps people to connect to their best self. This practice leaves people with a greater sense of well being, with a deeper connection to self and to the planet. It connects us to the understanding that we are all one and that we have the ability to co-create our wealth, health and happiness.

Kundalini Biology?

Neuroemotional Reprogramming (NER) or resetting and fine tuning the body's vibrational resonance, in order to grow the neurochemistry and neurons (dendrites) for the Universal body-mind experience. NER enhances the embodiment and qualitie of the things we all crave such as peace, empowerment, self worth, gratitude, trust, faith, reverence and equanimity.

In the stepped down nature of our daily lives we often do not get to experience the conditions needed to spontaneously generate these higher vibrational states. Therefore we need a "daily practice" whereby our body-mind becomes trained and accustomed to generating these frequencies. With this meditative therapy not only do we make up for the absence of emotional and spiritual nourishment during our developmental years, but after our NER conditioning is stabilized to higher emotional resonance, we find that our lives change in direct correspondence to the new resonant frequencies we embody. We thus radiate higher domain in our own behavior, thought, attractiveness, and in our energetic influence over the behavior and responses of others that come in contact with us.

So few of us were given a sense of self-worth and validation as a child that we live with a subliminal wrenching wound which we try and fill up by many different inferior tactics. NER takes us directly to Ground Zero, where we can be "organically receptive" to reconstruction into a higher estate. We stop fidgeting with our wound and open to the vibration of our individuals greatness within. Neuro-emotional reprogramming is simply addressing the void in our social and emotional make up and building up our neurological structures to facilitate a deeper more meaningful life.

"Ego is composed of a socialized set of arbitrary boundaries (limitations) that altogether define a person’s inner-identity. These inner-boundaries include values, beliefs and "understandings"- in the sense that people tend to “stand-under” or within these socially-enforced, self-imposed limitations.” John Van BortelKundalini Yoga is called the Yoga & Meditation of Awareness. It is a dynamic, powerful tool that is designed to give you an experience of your best self. In Kundalini Yoga we harness the mental, physical, and nervous energies of the body and put them under one domain of the will, which is the instrument of the soul. This technology precisely and consciously combines breath (pranayam), mudra (hand positions), eye-focus, mantra, body locks (bandhas), and postures (asana) to balance the glandular system, strengthen the nervous system, balance the left and right hemisphere of the brain, expand the lung capacity and purify the blood. It brings balance to the body, mind and soul. 

What is Unum Heart Meditation Station?

Unum Heart Meditation Station is a converted school bus that brings both a meditation space & teacher to you. As a teacher the greatest excuse I hear when it comes to why people don't meditate is " I don't have time". So often people feel as though they don't know how to meditate and where to go to find a practice is always a major concern. After all that worry, most people give up on the idea of meditation. At UHMS we teach 11 and 22 minute tangible meditation techniques. These techniques are extremely effective in a New York minute and anyone can experience them. It doesn't matter if you have never practiced meditation before, it doesn't matter if you don't have the perfect yoga pants to wear or if you don't know what yoga and meditation even is, come in and sit. 

Unum Heart Meditation Station is in schools and colleges in your neighborhood! I am so excited to sharing my “Tool Box” method in school, colleges and in corporate offices in the local Long Island and NY area. I wish I had these tools when I was in school. One of my favorite things to do is to share my programs. I see the hope it gives them to inspire their people to experiencing their greatness.

Unum Heart Meditation Station connects with Corporate America (creating Corporate Consciousness). Unum Heart Meditation Station provides 22 minute meditation (private and group) sessions within a three hour parked time slot in key neighborhoods throughout Long Island, Manhattan and Queens. UHMS offers it's programs in schools teaching mindfulness and stress relieving methods through out NYC and Long Island.  What ever the needs is UHMS schedule will meet your very busy schedule. Corporate America seems to be full of stress so I took UHMS to the next level. Now you can provide your employees with the tools they need to create a internal space of calm all while being extremely productive.

What matters is that you want to try something new. 

Unum Heart Meditation Station brings the meditation space and a teacher to you.
