I stopped to check my email today (totally just wanting to procrastinate) and saw that it’s almost time to renew my liability insurance. Liability insurance is a MUST if you’re even thinking about teaching yoga. Maybe you just want to sub a few classes here and there? Get it. Here are some reasons why:
- Having insurance protects you if a student believes that you caused them harm whether or not you actually did
- You live on a yoga teacher’s salary. Unless you’re a major yoga celebrity, you probably can’t afford the expense of legal representation
- Do not assume that you’re covered under your studio’s insurance plan. It’s 100% likely that you aren’t.
What type of liability insurance should you get? Talk to your school or do a web search for options. Choose the plan that will work the best for you and your services. Just don’t start teaching without liability insurance!
