Susan Underwood

Yoga Collective and Joy Yoga

Susan completed her first teacher training with Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center in 1988, experiencing first hand the immense power of yoga’s systematic approach to transform one’s spiritual, emotional and physical life and thus began a lifelong study of this precious practice. Her classes emphasize balancing strength and flexibility, and encourage students to personalize their practice, to move with intention, and to attend to the internal aspects of this ancient art. Parenting 3 amazing children, practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine and meditation, digging in the garden, dabbling in the kitchen and traveling with her sweetheart, have all provided inspiration on and off the mat. She holds a BS in Biology and a Masters in Social Work and Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Her understanding of anatomy, physiology and meridian theory enhances her practice and teaching style. She is a licensed acupuncturist and LMSW, employed by BCM, and joyfully shares her yoga practice, leading vinyasa and yin inspired classes at the Yoga Collective Studio and Joy Yoga Center in Houston, Texas.
