Our standard free Trainee membership does not include insurance. You can upgrade your Trainee membership at any time to a Trainee Plus membership, this includes insurance for members domiciled in the UK and Ireland.
This insurance can allow you to teach up to 2 hours per week outside of the training course. These 2 hours can be split in any way, so you may want to teach two, one-hour classes or one, one and half hour class.
Please remember also, that the insurance with us is only valid if you have permission from the Senior Yoga Teacher on the course to start teaching.
Trainee teachers must also meet the following conditions for trainee insurance:
- let people know they are not fully qualified.
- stay in regular contact with their teacher.
- can charge a fee but not normally the same as a fully qualified teacher would.
- teach only 2 hours per week.
These policies are underwritten in the UK for Zurich Insurance Company UK Ltd and in Ireland by Catlin Insurance Company (UK) Ltd.
