Why Choose beYogi Over Yoga Journal Insurance

Yoga liability insurance policy protects you and your practice. Having yoga insurance is a relatively low cost that supersedes the price tag of an average lawsuit and having coverage protects you from claims regarding accidents and occurrences that can happen in your classes. beYogi Insurance Plus provides perks and benefits that other liability insurance companies do not offer, including coverage for 350+ health and wellness activities.

Why does beYogi's yoga insurance outweigh Yoga Journal insurance?

Unlike Yoga Journal Insurance, beYogi Insurance Plus offers yoga instructors all-inclusive liability insurance as low as $179 a year. beYogi also offers a $25 student policy, so if you are a student currently enrolled in yoga teacher training (YTT) you are covered even if the unfortunate happens. Also, Yoga Journal Insurance does not offer an affordable student rate, leaving you uncovered if something unforeseen happens to you.

In addition, Yoga Journal Insurance offers two policies, one for part-time instructors priced at $190 and the other for full-time instructors priced at $250. However, by purchasing beYogi’s full-time policy for only $179 which covers you if you teach more than 6 hours a week or the part-time policy for $159 which covers you if you teach less than 6 hours a week, you will save money—so don’t sacrifice your earnings for an overpriced policy.

Also, you’ll want to keep in mind that while you may be teaching at one studio for now, you never know what the future holds! Opportunities may arise to teach a workshop, in private client’s homes, or at retreats and festivals—beYogi insurance will follow you not matter where you decide to take your passion!

Another reason why beYogi Insurance Plus outweighs Yoga Journal Insurance is because they do not offer their policy holders with benefits such as stolen equipment coverage, identity protection, and a free professional website.

Having stolen equipment coverage is something that every yoga instructor should consider, especially if you invest a lot of money in yoga mats and blocks for your clients. If something that you use for your business is stolen from you, beYogi will reimburse you for those lost or stolen items. When you become insured through beYogi Insurance Plus, you will have up to $1,000 in stolen equipment coverage, giving you the peace of mind you need to accomplish your goals.

Along with the stolen equipment coverage that beYogi Insurance Plus offers, you will also receive identity protection coverage and a free professional website. When you purchase a policy through Yoga Journal Insurance, you will not receive either of those benefits, which could potentially put your identity and brand at risk.

By investing in a beYogi Insurance Plus policy, you are not only protecting your career but also your practice.
