Sat Nam,


Welcome to Unum Heart, home of The ELEVATION Tool Box Method and the Unum Heart Elevation Station

My name is Karisa Johnston, aka Kundalini Karisa (a loving name that was given to me by those who practice with me). I am an international Kundalini Science and Technology teacher who specializes in Kundalini yoga, mantra meditation, sat nam rsyan, breathwork, and sound as vibration medicine. I felt the calling to bring the ancient technology of Kundalini science to those who are ready to learn the tools that will help you drop self-limiting thoughts and live your best life.


I hold an MA in Psychology and I soon to embark on a journey to my MSW with a dual PHD in trauma.  With over 3000 hours of training in Sound Therapy, Kundalini Science, Special Needs Yoga Therapy, and Prenatal Khalsa Way, as well as 2000 hours of teaching experience under my Kundalini belt, I look forward to sharing what I have learned with you. 

While working towards obtaining my BA in psychology, I felt that I was in need of more...more information, more understanding, more I set out for Greece, Costa Rica, Canada, New York, and India, and...Wow...did I find it!  I studied with incredible teachers and health care providers that provoked a remembrance and new understanding of a deeper level of profound authenticity inside my soul. I couldn't wait to get back to America to share what was provoked inside of me.


As a student, I learned that Breathology, Sound therapy, Sat Nam Resyan and Kundalini are all science's of

self-mastery. It is my experience that these methods help people to drop self-limiting beliefs. These are the sciences of self-discovery. They aid in people's understanding of how to better manage emotions and stress.  These sciences are actually technologies that offers specific tools to balance the brain, strengthen the immune system, cleanse the glandular and lymphatic system all the while strengthening the nervous system. When we keep our internal systems strong and working at optimal levels, we are better at handling life’s stresses.


I formulated The ELEVATION Tool Box Method to help people to release deep stress from the mind/body quickly. It decreases and most often eliminates depression, anxiety, and other forms of deep stress. 


We use this science to experience our own vitality.  


When I was a child, 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 and without special needs. This understanding inspired me to create The ELEVATION Tool Box Method and to facilitate it in schools, colleges, and health care professional settings. The ELEVATION Tool Box Method helps you find what your passion is. 


My programs provide fast-acting tools that help people that struggle with symptoms of depression, anxiety, autism, dyslexia, addiction, PTSD, cerebral palsy, ADHD, grief and more; calming the mind and releasing the struggle.

This method is accessible to all people and The ELEVATION Tool Box Method travels well anywhere. My method helps to strengthen the functions of the hippocampus and the superior temporal sulcus, creating positivity impacting memory and social interaction.

I do my very best to bring the teachings of The ELEVATION Tool Box Method into a

safe space, giving people the opportunity to rediscover the joy and wisdom

that already lives inside of them. 



I created and designed Unum Heart Elevation Station, The ELEVATION Tool Box Method, & Elevate U Yoga Mat.  

I believe that Kundalini science - yoga & meditation, breathwork, and sound as meditation is a vital part of experiencing a healthy lifestyle. My sessions are designed to detoxify the glandular system, and cleanse and strengthen the immune system on a physical level. My workshops, trainings, private sessions, and classes are equally as powerful, on a mental and spiritual level. Research shows that Kundalini science helps to releases stress from the body and the mind. The practice provides clarity,  embracing your individual challenges and giving you space to let go of the unnecessary clutter.


The ELEVATION Tool Box Method is for every single individual. It doesn’t matter if you have never practiced before, my sessions are designed for all walks of life, at all levels.
