As a fully paid up member and fully qualified IYA teacher you can avail of this reasonably priced insurance which provides both Malpractice Liability Insurance and incorporates Public Liability cover.

Insurance: Only teachers who are Full (Accredited) Members of the IYA can be recognised by the IYA for insurance purposes. .All other teachers, including those who are Associate Members of the IYA, should organise their own insurance – separate from any IYA recognition. This is because the IYA can only stand over qualifications awarded through its own Teacher Training Courses and in no way reflects on how the IYA value the qualifications of other yoga schools.
