Yoga studios improve lives every single day. Healthy choices help protect patrons from future complications.
But they’re not the only ones who need protection.
As an owner, your studio needs protection, too. Yoga studio insurance is an umbrella term that incorporates different types of coverage.
To ensure you can run your studio as effectively as possible, let’s unpack the different components of yoga studio insurance:
General Liability Insurance
This is typically what people think of when they hear the word insurance. It’s essential for two reasons:
First, general liability meets the contractual obligations to lease a facility. Without it, you won’t be able to rent your space. Your landlord will ask for your certificate of insurance each year and ensure that proper limits are met.
Second, it protects both you and your financial assets. If a patron gets injured at your studio, you don’t want that accident to cripple you personally or professionally.
Commercial Property Insurance
This type of coverage offers layers of protection.
Imagine a fire starts and causes significant damage. Property insurance would support you in several different ways:
Business Personal Property would help you replace essential items like computers, yoga mats, and speakers.
Tenants, Improvements, and Betterments cover any new additions you may have made such as putting in new flooring or adding walls.
Business Income coverage helps you pay bills while your studio is shut down for repairs.
Additional Coverage Options For Yoga Studios
General liability and commercial property insurance provide a bulk of the coverage options that studios need. However, for added peace of mind, there are additional options:
Hired And Non-Owned Auto Coverage provides protection for the studio if someone working for you gets in a car accident while running an errand, such as driving to the bank.
Excess Liability Insurance offers greater limits of coverage on top of your general liability. This could be a requirement of your lease.
Professional Liability covers you against professional liability. For example, if a patron claims that your program did not provide the desired outcome.
