What does yoga insurance cover?
Guiding your clients as they discover the benefits of yoga is generally a relaxed and smooth-running journey, but as with any form of physical activity, the risk of an accident or injury is very real.

What insurance do yoga teachers need?
Public liability insurance
Public liability insurance is a popular choice for yoga instructors as you work in close contact with other people. This type of cover is important if a client or member of the public sues you as a result of an injury or property damage that happened in one of your classes or under your direction.
Another thing to consider is that if you're working within a studio, the owner may require you arrange your own public liability insurance.
Personal accident insurance
Yoga instruction requires plenty of moving around - whether that's demonstrating a pose or guiding a new yogi into the correct alignment. If you suffer an injury yourself, you could find yourself needing to take time off. In some circumstances, personal accident insurance can offer compensation to cover your earnings.
If you're worried about your equipment getting broken, our optional equipment cover will cover the cost of repair or replacement. If you're temporarily abroad - say leading a retreat in Greece - your equipment will be covered there, too!
Employers' liability insurance
If you hire any employees, whether temporary, unpaid, part-time or full-time, you’re legally required to have employers' liability insurance. It covers injury claims made by your employees as a result of carrying out their work.
Our employers' liability offers £10 million of cover as standard.

However, you may find – particularly if you're working at studios – that the studio owner will require you to have a certain level of public liability cover.
