Our Yoga Insurance policies are driven by professional and general liability. 

We offer many types of coverage and limits if your needs are specialized.

For more specific details check Yoga Description of Coverage.

Check the list on the Definition of Yoga page to see what styles are covered.

Professional Insurance Icon

Professional Liability

Professional liability is a smart choice. It is almost always a mandatory requirement to work at a yoga studio as a subcontractor (or even as an employee sometimes). The definition of Professional Liability is " damages because of injury arising out of the rendering of, or failure to render professional services." In other words, as a yoga teacher, you are responsible for any injury caused to a client during yoga class. For example, fainting or landing on someone when attempting a handstand. Ensure you have the protection advantage with our specialized yoga insurance.

Commercial Insurance Icon

Commercial General Liability

Slips and falls can happen in any business. Unfortunately, your business is not immune to minor accidents. Imagine a client tripping on the corner of an old yoga mat at the end of your class. If you are teaching the class, you are probably responsible for accidents that happen in your class. Things happen. These accidents could result in lawsuits. That is why commercial general liability insurance (CGL) is imperative. Your CGL policy also has additional coverages automatically included at no additional charge. Protect yourself and your business with an insurance advantage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some specific questions we are asked about Yoga Insurance. 

For more FAQ’s please see our Advantage Insurance FAQ or  Definitions page.

Yoga Insurance starts at only $175 per year OR $20.79 per month. The policy includes both Professional Liability and General Liability insurance. 

Alternative Health is all we do. We have specialized in it for many years. We understand that most Yoga Teachers work part-time and make under $7,000 a year. Plus, with all the excellent training you receive, your industry becomes a very safe risk allowing us to keep our prices as low as possible. We understand your business.

YES! Our yoga insurance has no limitation as to where you work or from how many studios you offer classes. We have found most yoga teachers work at more than one studio.

Yes. We are a Canadian owned and operated insurance brokerage located in Waterloo, Ontario.  We only use Canadian licensed insurance companies with the best claims and service standards.

Yes.  We are currently working on an online credit card option.  Should your credit card be declined, we will keep trying three additional times over ten days.  After that point, we will contact you with the information you provided on file. Until the online payment option is fully functional, you can contact us by phone to give us the credit card information.

For a look at what types of Yoga ares covered and which are NOT covered so our Definition Of Yoga Page.  If you don’t see your style of Yoga, please let us know and we will be happy to look into it further.

YES! Many Yoga Teachers work from home or give private lessons at a client’s home. Our Yoga Insurance policy will provide full coverage if you work out of your home or if you work in someone else home at no additional charge.

No. Virtually all homeowners’ policies exclude “business pursuits on-premises.” It is not uncommon for some carriers to cancel your homeowner (tenants or condo) policy if they find out you have a health and wellness business in your home and don’t have coverage. You should always advise your insurance company that you have a business in your home. If you have any problems, call us, and we can help!

We are one of only a few brokers in Canada to offer instant certificates. You can apply online today for an instant certificate. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call at 226-641-0777 or look for our online chat icon.

“A business or person that carries out work for a company.” Most health and wellness professionals that work at a Clinic, Studio or Spa are subcontractors. A subcontractor will have a contract with the business owner to perform specific services at an agreed rate (or percentage). A subcontractor will be responsible for paying their taxes, CPP & EI.  A sub-contractor also MUST carry their own business insurance including, professional and general liability insurance.

Certificates of insurance are free! Just send us the name and address of the clinic, and we can send you one right away. Or click here for our Manage My Policy online request.

Yes and No?!? Your policy is like your car insurance policy that you may pay monthly. There is an industry-standard that must be followed by insurance brokers. Your yoga insurance policy is an annual policy with monthly payments.  If you cancel, you must pay the prorated portion of your premium for all fees and taxes. So the answer is yes,  you can cancel a monthly policy. However, there will be penalties for cancelling before paying for one full year.  Talk to your healthy broker today if you still have questions.

Yes! As a small business owner, you will have additional exposures you will need to insure.  Contents, equipment, stock, crime and liability insurance are essential to cover your space, to name a few. You may also want to add coverage to protect your staff or subcontractors working for you.  Policy’s start at $79 a month.  We will work with you to meet your specialized needs.  Talk to your healthy broker today. You can also visit our website at for more information.

Yes and no. It did get attention for a few months in 2019 but has fallen off the radar. Goats are messy and are known to poop on the participants.  Although insurance is necessary, as your yoga insurance broker, we are real people and still have a sense of humour.  Give us a call today to get started.
