Cindy Senarighi is an ordained pastor in the ELCA, author, speaker and co-founder/CEO of Yogadevotion LLC., a faith-based yoga company operating in the upper Midwest since 2000. Senarighi is a second career pastor. Her first call was to be a registered nurse. She graduated from St. Luke’s School of Nursing in 1977 and began her career at Regions Medical Center in St. Paul, Minn. Most of her 25 year nursing career was spent working on the acute adult psychiatric unit. She was ANCC certified in psychiatry and still holds her license. A transition from a position as a staff nurse to being a parish nurse occurred at the same time as a regular yoga practice developed. It was in that yoga practice that Senarighi felt this overwhelming presence of God, a healing love and light that was new and undeniable. While still a parish nurse she attended seminary. At the same time she began Yogadevotion, a faith-based yoga company.
