As a trainee yoga teacher, you assume the role of yoga teacher and take on the responsibility of caring for your students.
This means you need to support them with their practice, even when it’s challenging. You need to provide your students with self-confidence when they stop believing in themselves.
It also means you need to take the necessary steps to protect them should anything happen during their sessions with you. If the unexpected were to happen in your class, you should take action to ensure your students get the care they need.
This is why getting yoga teacher trainee insurance is a must. I know what you’re thinking, that this won’t happen to you. But the truth is, you never know. Student yoga teacher insurance is there just in case.
You should get insured to cover yourself or your students if any of these things happen:
Your student gets injured while receiving instruction from you and they decide to take action against you both at the time you are doing your training and retroactively for previously insured work performed.
Legal coverage for anything that arises outwith your teaching, for instance, tax issues or misconduct allegations against you (includes 24-hour advice line).
Taking out trainee yoga teacher insurance will give you cover for these scenarios for up to 2 hours per week while you train. Accidents happen, especially when you’re just starting out. Don’t take the risk. Show your students that you are committed to your craft and that you teach yoga responsibly.
