Product Returns Policy
Take care of your yoga props and staves!!
Yoga Props – particularly your mat is best kept clean, but spraying with antibacterial spray following a session. This helps maintain your mat. If this is done, your mat need only be thoroughly cleaned every 3-6 months with eucalyptus oil and hot water, and left to dry in the dappled shade.
Fire / Practice Staves –
Maintaining your props are integral to save you unnecessary repetitive costs.
Grip – whatever your grip preference, maintaining your grip is essential. Hair, jewellery – bangles, bracelets, necklaces, rings, dropping your staff on unforgiving surfaces such as concrete, sharp corners and metal will damage your grip. Sometimes brushing the grip with a small dustpan brush (if your grip is ridgy) will suffice, if your grip is porous, you will need to wash the grip with hair shampoo and warm water and allow it to dry.
Wicks – fire wicks should be covered while practising. A plastic bag can be wrapped, layered and tied to protect your wicks, socks (baby socks for Dragon Staff wicks), wick covers, carpet, leather / material, etc can be used.
Staff – unless your staff is Carbon Fibre, you will also have to be mindful of staves being bent. The thinner the wall of the aluminium (or similar metal), the more likely the staff is to bend. Drops on hard and / or uneven surfaces, park benches, corners / gutters / grates (concrete / metal corners), stepping on your staff, will all cause it to bend. Be mindful of your surroundings, and stand your staff up against something will ensure the longevity of your equipment.
The tape will last longer if you hoop on grass or other soft surfaces. Be gentle when you coil down your travel hoop and be mindful not to fold or kink it. Dance hoops are a little less fragile but it is still important not to lean too hard on them or they will not only become an oval, the plastic will eventually snap.
If you believe the Yoga props or the staff itself is faulty or damaged then please contact us within 30 days of receiving it.
Faulty or damaged?
If your Yoga props or staves are faulty or damaged, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com within 30 days of receiving it and, so long as it is a product fault not caused by misuse, we will send it to the Yoga prop / Staff Doctor or replace it.
Otherwise, cost of repair for wear and tear will be calculated on a case by case basis.
What are the details?
Your item must be sent back to us within 30 days of you receiving it. We will not accept returns for equipment that has been scuffed or damaged from use.
The cost of returning the equipment for refund is at the buyer’s expense.
Once your return has been verified based on the terms of this policy, you will receive notification via email on the status of your refund request and return payment will be arranged.
