Breaking news: Is ACC scaming Yoga teachers?

ahimsa handAli reports: ACC states that in 2014 there were 1,700 claims under Sports and recreation instruction (Classification Unit 84500). However, only ten claims had the word “yoga” in their name.

Yet during the same calendar year (Jan 1- Dec 31, 2014), Dance and Ballet had 212 active claims (costing $234,002). Meanwhile Rugby (league, union and touch) had over 1000 active claims costing almost $2,000,000!

If according to ACC, “yoga is not an activity that is specifically measured” why do Yoga teachers have to pay 5 times as much as Dance and Ballet teachers, and the same as Community Rugby instruction?
