YAUK Insurance Cover:  This covers you to teach yoga if you are based and working in the UK.  Our insurance is provided by Towergate Professional Risk, it covers you for up to £5 million indemnity and if you are teaching overseas for up to 120 days of the year.  For further information on this, please take a look here.



The costing is the same as above for the UK with an additional £10 on each membership due to exchange rates with the euro and insurance being more expensive in Ireland than the UK.
