In fact, a primary form of insurance that a yoga teacher policy includes is general liability insurance. This type of insurance, also known as “slip and fall” insurance, is the kind that almost every business wants and needs. If someone slips on a small spill and suffers an injury, for instance, a lawsuit can happen. This type of accident can happen anytime, anywhere, and any business that allows a customer on the property is a candidate for such a claim.
Yoga, of course, is also a physical activity. Anyone who has ever gone to a yoga class knows this. As a result, the potential for physical injury is high. In your yoga class, you likely have a wide range of physical health and natural agility among your students. If you have a student who is just getting back into shape and that student gets injured, you, the teacher, could be sued. It may not be your fault, but if the injury happens during your yoga class, you can still be singled out for a claim.
