We recommend you obtain professional advice and carefully consider which insurance policy and company best meets your needs. However, we are able to advise that Insurance House welcomes Yoga Australia members and offers an affordable professional insurance policy with competitive rates. Insurance House will also insure members who are providers of other modalities in addition to yoga teaching e.g massage.
Yoga has become an accepted part of the Australian health-care system and growing numbers of health insurance funds are now paying benefits for yoga. Yoga Australia Registered Teacher status is the ‘gold standard’ that provides Funds with the quality assurances they are seeking.
Mentoring is the guidance given between teacher and trainee or student, as well as the ongoing professional and personal guidance necessary for all yoga teachers, at all levels of seniority and experience, as part of the continuing journey of yoga. Yoga Australia strongly encourages members to engage in mentoring, especially teachers who spent less than 12 months in training.
