Laughter Ambassador, Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher & Happiness Coach

Lynda Andrews is a teacher by profession & vocation. Originally training as a Drama Teacher back in 1978. She dedicated the first part of her adult life to bringing up a family. A most rewarding and inspiring career pathway. Alongside that she developed a number of business ideas that always incorporated her love of teaching and sparking joy in people.

In 2007 series of challenging life events meant that Lynda became very depressed, which led to her discovering Laughter Yoga.
