Professional Liability Insurance

As a Pilates professional, your focus may be on building your practice, but did you know that it’s equally important to protect it—and yourself—as it grows? A single claim against the instruction you provide can take a substantial amount of your time away from your work and it can cost thousands of dollars to defend—even if you’re found innocent.

The PMA, through partnership with Lockton Affinity (for USA Members) has created insurance policies specific to the needs of our members. These PMA-endorsed Professional Liability Insurance policies are available to Pilates teachers, Pilates teacher-trainers and also Pilates students.

Due to new state regulations, Lockton has had to reconfigure their application process.  As such, there are two (2) ways for PMA members to have their applications processed – online and via email.

If you reside in the following states, your applications may be processed online and coverage is immediate upon payment:
