AcroYoga instructors help others develop trust, and connection through yoga, acrobatics, and healing arts. While these accomplished teachers apply their craft with their students’ best intentions in mind, they’re also more vulnerable to lawsuits than many other professionals.
Since Acrobalance is a key component of AcroYoga, participants are often fully suspended in the air, using balance and core strength to form physically demanding poses. Because of the physical risks involved, AcroYoga instructors experience significant personal liability – even if they have an active professional liability policy.
Traditional insurance companies often consider activities like AcroYoga as extreme in nature, so they exclude them from coverage in the fine print of their policies. If you’re an insurance agent or broker representing AcroYoga instructors, you’re responsible for ensuring that your clients have the right liability protection to reduce their risk and safeguard their assets.
Prime Insurance Company can provide liability protection for any independent fitness or training instructor from potential liability claims as a result of an accident caused by their work. You can recommend a Prime plan to your clients with complete confidence.
We can help insurance producers (agents and brokers) that are looking to write more business for their clients in the yoga industry, including:
Does your client’s current general liability insurance, professional liability insurance, or product liability insurance protect their personal assets in cases involving frivolous claims?
In most cases, legal judgments exceed the limits of these policies. Also, many common, frivolous claims may qualify as exclusions in traditional business insurance policies.
In 2010, the Consumer Products Safety Commission reported that yoga-related injuries in emergency rooms and doctor’s offices rose to 7,369.
The most common yoga injuries include neck, back, knee and shoulder injuries.
An AcroYoga liability insurance plan can prevent policyholders from having to pay thousands or millions of dollars out of pocket if a lawsuit or settlement goes against them. It will also cover the costs of their legal defense. Specific coverage areas include:
