Sharon Page

Founder & Freethinking Yogini

In the year 2010, Sharon set an intention in her 200-hour yoga teacher certification course to create an online yoga community. She wanted to be able to handpick sustainable items to sell and also bring people together in various ways. Though the recession put her plans on hold, in August of 2013, she quit her job, packed her things, and moved to Arizona where she found a course on sustainable design. Sharon then moved back to Oregon and started building her online community and her brand, and she began to create a space where, through the simple practices of yoga and breath, everyone would be welcome.

Mukha Yoga is the result of a long, amazing journey. It is a dream becoming true.

Heidi Drake

Heidi discovered yoga at the suggestion of her chiropractor and founded Downward Dog Yoga & Wellness Studio in Sunriver, Oregon in 2017, after obtaining her RYT-250 aerial yoga instructor certification from Aerial Yoga Academy. A lifelong dancer who taught jazz, hip hop, and tap at Sunriver Dance Academy for 9 years, Heidi realized that she needed something a bit gentler on her 50+ year-old body and was pleasantly shocked to find a passion for the strength, flexibility, and mind-body-soul connection yoga offers. When she’s not at the studio or writing, Heidi’s favorite place is on the Little Deschutes river, in her own backyard, with her husband, two teenage daughters, and pack of 4 dogs.
