Proudly Providing Yoga Insurance to Businesses in Massachusetts & Many Other States Across the Nation
What is Yoga Insurance?
Teaching yoga comes with certain inherent risks, including liability and property risks. It’s important for yogis in Massachusetts to protect themselves when possible, and yoga insurance can play an important role in a yogi’s protection.
Yoga insurance is a specialized commercial insurance that’s designed for yogis’ needs. Since yogis commonly face multiple risks, these policies are normally underwritten as package policies that have multiple protections.
Who in Massachusetts Should Have Yoga Instructor Insurance?
Most Massachusetts yoga studios and instructors should be covered by yoga instructor insurance, for either a studio or instructor may be held liable in the event of an injury or other covered claim.
Instructors who teach at studios may be covered by their studio’s policy while they’re working for the studio. Studio instructors should be aware that any studio-provided coverage likely won’t extend to instruction that’s given outside the studio’s official programs, and it may not provide all of the protection that an instructor would like. For these reasons, studio instructors might still want to purchase their own policy.
Instructors who teach independently of studios typically should consider purchasing their own policy, since they generally don’t have coverage through a studio.
Instructors who need help assessing their situation and coverage needs ought to speak with an insurance agent who specializes in yoga instructor insurance. A specialized agent will be able to review the specifics of a situation and make an informed policy recommendation.
