Why do you need yoga insurance?
According to the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), the number of yoga-related injuries treated in emergency rooms has nearly doubled over the last four years—and that’s just emergency rooms!
While yoga teachers make every effort to teach their students about body awareness, accidents can still happen—and industry research reveals they are happening more often every year. So here’s the problem: Are you covered in the event of an accident or injury?
It is imperative that your yoga liability insurance provides the two most important kinds of coverage: professional and general liability. Professional liability insurance, sometimes known as “malpractice” insurance, covers you against claims of negligence or incompetence. Take for instance, if one of your students suffers an injury from not paying attention to your guidance for proper form in a yoga position. Your professional liability insurance will protect you in this situation. In comparison, general liability insurance is sometimes referred to as “trip and fall” insurance. This protects you in the event, for example, that one of your students trips over a yoga mat on the floor and suffers an injury from falling to the floor.

As a yoga teacher, what kind of insurance do I need?
The two most important types of insurance to carry as a yoga instructor are general liability (slip and fall) coverage and professional liability (malpractice). These will cover you in case of an unfortunate event where one of your students is injured. Whether that be an injury from tripping over something and falling or a claim of negligence by one of your students.
Other types of valuable insurance coverages that are available by some companies include product coverage liability, rental damage coverage, and stolen equipment coverage. With the growing number of yoga practitioners desiring other services like massage to be incorporated with their yoga, product coverage insurance is becoming more and more needed. The product coverage is great if you are practicing several modalities. This coverage will protect you in the event a student or client has an adverse reaction to a product you use.
Look for a yoga liability insurance provider, like beYogi, that covers both professional and general liability under one policy. You’ll also enjoy additional coverages like those mentioned above. With our policies, you are also not limited to the number of modalities covered by your policy.
What is the difference between general liability and professional liability?
As a yoga teacher, it is very important to have both general liability insurance and professional liability insurance coverage. Make sure when you are looking for coverage policies that you opt for one that provides both of these. General liability insurance, often referred to as “slip and fall” insurance, covers you against any third-party claims for injury or property damage. If for instance, there is sweat or water on the floor of the studio you are teaching at and a student slips and injures themselves you are covered.
Professional liability insurance is a little different and sometimes referred to as “malpractice insurance”. This coverage will protect you against any third-party claims that your posture correction or instruction led to an injury. For example, if a student did not fully understand your explanations of a pose and because of that, they injured themselves.
Both of these scenarios are possible in your day to day yoga practice so you want to make sure you are fully covered by your yoga insurance for both types of liability.
Should I get liability insurance if I am a student in yoga teacher training?

When should I buy yoga liability insurance?

Many programs offer discounted rates for students. Then you know you’ll be covered during your training time as well as when you get out on your own.
