Why Do Yoga Teachers Need Insurance?

A yoga teacher faces unique challenges, taking on students of all ages, sizes, and backgrounds in a studio they may or may not own. As mentioned before, many gyms require yoga instructors to have their own general liability insurance in order to use their space. Working with people's bodies and the kind of equipment in a yoga space can create opportunities that require a yoga teacher to have insurance, such as:

  • a student pushing themselves too far and injuring themself
  • mirror falling off the wall
  • posture correction resulting in injury

There are many things that could happen in the course of a yoga class that can mean a lawsuit from a student, that's why it's important for yoga teachers to have their own professional liability insurance.
