Lucky for you if you are travelling outside of the country to teach in a retreat or training centre, HUB will also ensure you while you are away (up to six week periods ).
Due to COVID-I9 crisis, HUB is now offering on-line endorsement.
To apply for insurance, you must be a trained or certified yoga teacher; please provide CYA with a copy of your certificate of training (minimum 200 hrs. for yoga) This coverage will cover members that require International Yoga Coverage ( you are travelling and may be teaching short-term for up to 6 weeks only).
