As a yoga teacher, you need yoga insurance to protect you from third-party liability claims. If a student were to sue you, could you stretch your financial resources to cover the cost of a lawsuit or medical bills?

Because yoga is a physical activity, the chance of injury or mishaps is higher than normal. In fact, the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) reported that the number of yoga-related injuries treated in emergency rooms have nearly doubled to 5,000 instances in the last five years.

Yoga Insurance Coverages That All Yoga Teachers Need

There are many components to yoga insurance. Here, we break down each part of Insurance Canopy's yoga insurance policy and explain what it covers.

What Is General Liability?

In a yoga class, students may have varying levels of physical ability and agility. Whether or not it is your fault, a student could easily become injured and decide to sue you.

General liability coverage offers you protection against these types of third party claims for bodily injury or property damage. It can help protect you from damages and legal costs.

What Is Professional Liability?

Professional liability insurance for yoga teachers is extremely important since you provide instruction and sometimes correct student postures in a pose. If those instructions or corrections were to result in an injury for one of your students, you could be held liable in a claim.

What Is Inland Marine?

Inland marine is a type of business personal property coverage that provides protection for your property anywhere in the United States. Basically, if the property you use for yoga instruction is vandalized, stolen, or damaged by fire, it would be covered up to $2000 per item for a covered loss after a deductible is applied.
