Insurance for Yog Teachers
The PYP UK Yog Teachers insurance group policy has now been in place for over 18 months and has successfully insured a large number of PYP-affiliated teachers. As a yog teacher, you are strongly advised to make arrangements to be personally covered by the insurance:
The Teaching or Malpractice cover is provided as part of a group policy for PYPT teachers within the bespoke Yoga-Link scheme arranged especially for Yoga Teachers throughout the wider Yoga community.
There are a number of attachments [see links below] relating to the malpractice cover, prefixed by YL and amongst these you will find an application form for your use. Please return the completed form to Yogal Link together with either a photocopy of all relevant qualifications, or confirmation of ongoing study if you are still training.
Novae Insurance Company Ltd underwrite the policy we have arranged, providing an indemnity limit of £5,000,000. This covers both Malpractice and Public Liability together as required by Yoga teachers.
The basic insurance start-up cost for PYPT teachers is £65.00 inclusive of both Insurance Premium Tax @ 5% and £25.00 set-up/administration charge. There is a common and shared renewal date for the PYPT group, which is 15 February and the amount payable now until this date in 2009 is less now @ £22.00 inclusive.
The Legal Expenses cover we have arranged is especially designed for Yoga Teachers and Therapists. Abbey Legal underwrites the policy. This extra cover is entirely optional but strongly recommended. You will find full particulars provided on the 3 relevant documents in the links below prefixed with 'AL'.
The annual premium required for this is £26.25 inclusive of insurance @ 5% and the amount payable through to 15 February 2009 would again be less @ £6.50 inclusive.
This means that the total sum to pay is £28.50 for both Malpractice and Legal Expenses.
This quotation will remain valid for 30 days, after which period the figures will require revalidating.
Payment can be made using most major debit/credit cards or by cheque payable to DSC Insurance Services. A personalized certificate will be issued confirming cover (normally within 2-5 working days) and a policy booklet is also sent on completion.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Yoga Link direct or one of the above listed local teacher coordinators.
