Hi there! I just finished up my balanced body test out (yay!) and am now attempting to secure a few studios to teach mat classes in. I'm wondering if any pilates veterans could please advise me on personal liability insurance? Most studios are asking I show proof of insurance, but it's hard to fork up a few hundred dollars without really knowing I'm making the best choice... any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thank you, Bela

Hi Bela, Most of our instructors use Philadelphia Insurance through Idea - they have good prices and are reliable. You get a bit of a discount if you're an Idea member. You can see some information at: http://www.ideafit.com/fitness-insurance/pilates-insurance The PMA has a partnership with Lockton too - and a discount through them if you're a member. Check out: http://www.pilatesmethodalliance.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3299 I'd say either of these companies would be a solid bet. Hopefully some other folks will chime in!

Thanks for your response and the information, Angelo! Philadelphia Insurance seems to be the way to go, so I'll probably end up going with that!

Hi there- You may want to also consider Insurance Plus. They've been providing liability insurance for 28 years and have reasonable rates. It's $159 for a year / $77 for students, but you can get $10 off by mentioning you were referred by WAGs (Wrist Assured Gloves). If you want to investigate further their number is 800-222-1110. Best of Luck Bella!

Phila. Insurance now makes it easy for those of us who teach at several studios. You can go online and create certificates of insurance that name additional insureds for each studio.
