Employers’ liability insurance for yoga instructors  

If you employ one or more members of staff, your yoga instructor insurance will not be complete until you purchase employers’ liability insurance. This type of insurance is a legal requirement if you have staff working for you. It can cover the cost of defending or settling any legal claims, as well as cover medical bills that arise if an employee accuses your business of causing illness or injury. It’s worth noting this only covers your employees, and not members of the public or your clients.

Do I need both public liability + employers’ liability insurance?

As mentioned, employers’ liability is a legal requirement if you have people working for you in your yoga business. In contrast, public liability insurance is not a legal requirement, but this type of yoga teacher liability insurance could prove invaluable if you interact regularly with members of the public as part of your work, for example, if you hold your yoga classes in a public space such as a gym or community centre.
