Yoga Teacher Insurance
When you’re teaching yoga or managing a studio, you know how fun and beneficial the practice can be. If you’ve been doing it for a length of time, however, you also understand the risks that are involved. A participant may not disclose existing health conditions, for example, and push themselves beyond capacity, causing injury. Someone could steal from your studio or damage equipment. You could be sued.
Having yoga instructor liability insurance is a way to protect yourself and your students in the event of physical harm or facility damage. At Dance Studio Insurance, our yoga teacher insurance covers a wide variety of yoga styles, including prenatal yoga.
Aerial Yoga is not included here. See our Aerial Instructor Insurance.
What kind of insurance do instructors need?
Yoga teacher liability insurance for instructors will protect you in the event you are sued because of injury or death of a participant, spectator, or volunteer.
Additionally, some teachers add on Sexual Abuse and Molestation coverage because they are concerned about accusations due to the nature of the teacher-student relations or contact.
Insurance Coverage Options and How to Apply
We offer two different programs for yoga instructor insurance to meet your specific needs.
Both programs can cover either certified or non-certified yoga instructors.
Program A will be best for you if you meet either of the following criteria:
- If you teach activities in both of these categories: Dance/Yoga/Aerobics and
- You need a higher aggregate limit than $1M. Check your contract for any such requirements.
You’ll need Program B if you meet any of these criteria:
- You need coverage outside of U.S. This applies if you teach on a cruise ship or otherwise conduct classes outside the U.S. You must have a permanent residence in U.S. to qualify.
- You need a higher per-occurrence limit than $1M. Check your contract with the facility you are teaching at to see if they require a higher per-occurrence limit.
