It’s no wonder that yoga is appealing to people all over the world. Yoga improves flexibility, helps manage stress, relieves back pain and muscle strain, and much more.

WHY GET INSURANCE FOR YOGA TEACHERS?

We know that as a yoga teacher, you train for hundreds of hours and spend thousands of dollars to make sure you have the skill and expertise to teach yoga and help your participants practice the best they can. You don’t plan for accidents to happen, but it is inevitable. Your participants can hold you liable for any harm done to them and their bodies, so you’ll want to make sure that you get yoga insurance. Without insurance, you can be left paying thousands of dollars out of your own pocket. Any sort of bodily harm or physical injury that may happen while practicing yoga can result in harm to the participants, like sprains, pulled muscles, and other related injuries. Perhaps while teaching a yoga class, your participant does a bridge incorrectly and strains their back—you may be held liable for any harm done to them or medical expenses. These types of physical injuries listed above can also lead to secondary issues like impaired mobility, loss of work, and any other injuries at home. However, yoga insurance from Insurance Canopy includes general liability, which includes issues that don’t involve exercising, like a slip and fall accident in your studio’s parking lot, or a participant tripping over something in your studio. Make sure that your studio and the parking lot are always free from harm, so that you can avoid those claims. men and women in a yoga class pose with their eyes closed.
