As a yoga instructor, you help bring peace into your studio and the lives of your students. The last thing you need is a liability claim disrupting the balance of your business. Yoga insurance can bring peace of mind and stability to your practice.

Yoga insurance is a policy designed to help you avoid paying for costly claims on your own. These claims can be filed for:

  • Bodily injury or death
  • Allergic reactions to products used during a class
  • Harmful fitness or lifestyle advice
  • Property damage


A great yoga insurance policy should include General LiabilityProfessional Liability, and Product Liability in its coverage. These policies can help protect you if a student sprains an ankle during class, someone trips and breaks a mirror on a studio wall, or you sell your own products to students and someone has an allergic reaction to it.

We recommend every yoga instructor have insurance. Not only does yoga insurance cover you from claims, it helps to increase your credibility and give you peace of mind. Insurance can also be required for you to teach in studios, gyms, and other locations. This is because many facility owners will ask to be added as an additional insured on your policy.

A single liability claim can cost you thousands in legal fees, medical expenses, and loss of income. You could face having your certification revoked, your studio closing, and your reputation being damaged. Having the right insurance can protect you from facing the claims process alone.


We know you have your students’ best interest in mind during every class you teach. Even the most skilled yoga instructors can still have unexpected accidents occur. Align your business with the coverage you deserve. Insurance Canopy’s yoga insurance can be instantly purchased entirely online in minutes. We are proud to be your trusted partner in protecting your practice.
