Hello! Welcome to my healing practice, Sutra Body + Soul. I’m Lindsay Hopkins and I am a certified Reiki Master Teacher, Breathwork Facilitator and Thai Bodywork Practitioner. I approach my healing practice with both an intuitive and clinical lens and provide an interdisciplinary approach to healing. I have additional training in the Akashic Records as well as years of training in somatic movement and dance, body centered meditation practices and yoga. I merge all of this wisdom with my experiences working in community development and arts education and have a trauma-informed practice.
These modalities create an environment for increased circulation and energy flow in order to release old patterns both physically and emotionally. This healing work helps bring consciousness back into the body, aiding the receiver on their journey to wholeness. Sessions bring awareness to and alchemize: reoccuring stress patterns, trauma, difficult memories and experiences, inherited and ancestral trauma and physical illness stored in the body and energy field.
I look at the body, mind and spirit as a whole system. I believe the answers are always inside of us. Together we peel back layers of emotional and physical imprints, trauma and stored memories to get to them.

My remote Reiki session with Lindsay was calming and ultimately transformational. I felt that I went through many levels of being and consciousness from dream-like and meditative to vision, clarity and back again. Old memories surfaced that I had not connected with for a long time. Some were disturbing and painful, but Lindsay helped me with patience and grace to work through them. I am currently in treatment for cancer following a devastating heartbreak at the ending of a long marriage. The session allowed me to connect to the emotional fears I have been experiencing with this illness – locating them in my body and allowing them to settle and dissipate. Lindsay also worked with me on a chakra meditation that gave me balance and left me feeling peaceful. She gave me some practical tools for taking our work together further. I am grateful and wiser as an outcome.
Last fall I received a remote healing session with Lindsay, hoping to move some energy around a new career direction and making healthier choices in relationships. Like anything, it’s been a process. But reflecting on those intentions a few months later, I’ve been able to leave a toxic work environment, form a clearer sense of where my next steps are in relation to income/work and creativity, and I’m having a great time dating a wonderful person. I think the remote session acted as an energetic jumpstart in making these much needed changes.
