Fact sheet 19

Yoga Students and Trainee Teachers

The Yoga-Link scheme can be extended to provide cover for student-teachers learning or practising their teaching skills.

We cater for 2 different levels of trainee; supervised and unsupervised:  

  1. A supervised trainee is automatically indemnified by the policy of the supervising teacher who must be present for the entire duration of the class and responsible for the safety of everyone involved, particularly the class students, at all times.
  1. Once a trainee is ready to conduct their own classes unsupervised, then individual student insurance must be arranged under the Yoga-Link scheme.  A student endorsement would be applied to their policy as under: –

Endorsement 54

Student Yoga Teacher

Where the Insured’s profession is stated in item 8 of the Schedule as ‘Student Teacher’, their activities, as insured by this Policy, are restricted to the level reached in their training programme and their tutor’s assessment.

All other terms, conditions, exclusions and limitations in this policy remain unaltered.

This endorsement can be removed once the trainee is certificated.
