Corporate Insurance

Do you run a yoga business; such as a studio or run teacher training courses? Read on to ensure you have insurance in place to cover your business needs as teacher insurance, may not cover your additional requirements.

Why do I need separate Insurance Policy for my Studio or Training School?

  • Protect your business against claims - in the event of a claim; a claimant can try to take legal action against both the individual teacher and the business. For example, you run a yoga studio, and a teacher who you employ injures a class participant. The claimant (participant) can claim against both the individual teacher and the studio for compensation. Legal costs alone for defending a claim can be costly! Insurance protection will help with legal expenses. 
     
  • Issuing graduation certificates from Teacher Training and Workshops - most yoga teacher insurance, ours included, does not cover you for issuing graduation certificates to teachers who you have trained as part of a Teacher Training Course or Workshop. If you issue certificates at the end of a training course or workshop, then you should have a Corporate Policy in place to protect yourself should there be a claim from a course participant.  

  • Teach Retreats/Workshops - if you are using a business name to teach abroad whether this is for an event, workshop, retreat or training, make sure that the business has coverage for running such events.

Other Types of Insurance to consider (Not included in Corporate Insurance)

Protecting your Building and Content

You will most likely have your own equipment, such as computers, furniture, ornaments etc and we would advise that you insure this against loss or damage. For this you will need Contents Insurance.
 
Studio owners should have insurance in place to protect the building from damage. This could be caused by flood, fire, storm damage etc. If you have a mortgage on the property, then most mortgage providers will insist that you take out Buildings Insurance.
 

Do You Employ Staff?

Then you will require Employer’s Liability Insurance - it’s a UK government requirement that employers have this in place. This protects a business against the cost of compensation claims arising from employee illness or injury, sustained as a result of their work within your yoga business.  

If you have other teachers working in your business, then it is important to ensure that they also have their own insurance in place to cover them while they teach classes. Remember if you take out a Corporate Insurance policy with Yoga Alliance Professionals then this will cover them to teach classes within your business. 

This insurance policy is arranged through Balens Ltd. We have chosen to work with Balens as their policies are underwritten by Zurich Insurance Plc for the UK.
