Why do we need Public Liability Insurance?
All Sahaja Yoga Australia public and collective programs and events need to be covered by our collective Public Liability Insurance (PLI) policy. The policy covers the public and yogis in case there’s an incident that has caused injury to people attending the event.
PLI Certificates are generally required for all public events by the Venue’s manager, as proof that you have a current Public Liability Insurance policy in place. Certificates are not required for events held at Sahaja ashrams and collective properties but must be
registered with us for cover.
Yogis holding programs in their homes are expected to arrange their own PLI Cover are asked to record the program on the online application form.
Although these cannot be covered by our national public liability policy, we will add them to our records.
All Yogis running public programs must also have a current Working With ChildrenCheck (WWCC) approval.
