25 Apr AcroYoga: Getting Coverage To Teach
Embarking on a career as a yoga teacher is exciting. You’ve spent time as a student, you made it through the strenuous yoga teacher training, and now you are ready to roll out your mat and teach others. You may even be considering opening a studio of your own. One of the most important decisions you’ll make is choosing your insurance policy. Whether you own a studio, or teach independently, you’ll want to protect your business interests with insurance.
If you teach Acroyoga, you may not be aware that most traditional insurance plans do not cover this style of yoga. If insurance providers cover it at all it is though an additional rider that will cost you more money. Acroyoga involves movements many companies think are extreme, like participants being fully suspended off the ground, and performing physically strenuous activities. With the idea that this could lead to a greater incident of injury, they won’t cover it.
Why should you take the extra steps to be sure you are covered for AcroYoga? We live in a society where people love to sue. You may have a “that won’t happen to me in the yoga community” mentality, but law suits are not unheard of in yoga. One simple error, one fall, or one mishap during inversions, partner yoga or flying could put your professional and financial future in jeopardy.
We can work with you to create a custom plan that will ensure you are covered for whatever you teach. Would you like to know more? Contact us today to see how we can help you protect yourself and your career.
