Born in Boulder, Colorado, Waylon Lewis is a journalism student at Boston University and is himself a "dharma brat."
Travis Robinson, publisher, and Waylon Lewis, editor, are the partners behind this new, free Boulder-based bimonthly magazine.
Robinson and Lewis' publication pulled in an estimated $5,000 in advertising revenues while the two paid roughly $10,000 in production costs for the first issue.
Lewis cited Yoga Journal, Nexus and the Mountain Gazette as Yoga in the Rockies' primary competition.
Lewis said he thinks their publication will fill an untouched niche in the market. They printed 25,000 copies of the first issue.
"The print media market is bad, but the yoga market is booming," he said. "We're grassroots. And our magazine will connect yoga students with all of the word-of-mouth organizations, classes and studios people wouldn't otherwise know about."
The partners have created a database of more than 700 studios, many of which can't be found in the phone book, they said. Lewis added that other yoga and new age journals are trying to sell spirituality, while Yoga in the Rockies is appealing to a way of life.
Lewis and Robinson said they are also optimistic because of the response they have received from the community.
"People want to be a part of this," Lewis said.
Waylon Lewis, publisher of the Boulder-based magazine Elephant, agrees. Lewis has known Sakyong Mipham, who was born in India and grew up in part in Boulder, since they were children.
"The Sakyong has been an athlete since he was a kid," Lewis said.

"On a certain level this has nothing to do with Elephant," Lewis said.
Its editor, Waylon Lewis, hosts the event and leads the interviews.
"Waylon is kind of crazy, but we also try to go deep with the people and hit what's important to them," says event organizer Heather Mueller.
Waylon Lewis became a vegetarian about five years ago. It made the household run a little easier, since his girlfriend didn't eat meat.
"We were splitting up pots, so I could cook my bacon and sausage," he says of the time before he made the switch. Lewis, editor of Elephant magazine, admits he had a few periods in his life when his eating habits were less than mindful - chain restaurant pizza and college went together all too well - but he even as a child he was conscious of where his food came from.
