Pastor Cindy Senarighi, RN

I began my journey with faith-based yoga when I was still an RN working on an acute adult psychiatric unit. At the time also taught fitness, and a friend encouraged me to take a yoga training so that "when I got old" I could still be physical. Needless to say, that training was far more than studying the asanas and the breathing... it was the first time I was able to be quiet, calm and truly attentive to the Spirit within. I was overwhelmed by an experience of God's Presence and love.

I desperately wanted to share that experience with others and thus began Yogadevotion LLC, a faith-based yoga company. Yogadevotion has existed since 1999, and continues to grow by bringing faith and yoga together in the communities and churches where people live. At the same time as Yogadevotion came to life, so did my call to become an ordained Lutheran pastor in the ELCA.

I currently serve at St. Andrews Lutheran Church in Mahtomedi, Minnesota, as the congregational care pastor. Christians Practicing Yoga was one of the first organizations that I relied on in the journey of faith and yoga, and I am grateful to be a part of this group.
