Zen on the Edge: Yoga Retreats to Try

It's not enough to master the Crane pose. For real yogi cred, you need to pull it off in an exotic locale. We unearthed a few trips worth bending over backward for.

Atop a Volcano 
It doesn't get more far-flung than this. As part of Tui Tai's luxe sailing trips around Fiji, 22 wayfarers hike to the top of a volcano (don't worry, it's dormant) for invigorating sessions of stretching, breathing, and meditation against postcard-worthy backdrops. 

Details: tuitai.com, from $3,193 for five nights, all-inclusive

On Safari 
If spying on leopards, lions, and rhinos doesn't get your heart racing, Londolozi reserve in South Africa ups the adrenaline factor by hosting pre- and post-game drive yoga classes, so you can do the tree pose in an actual tree house -- while hungry hippos chomp below. 

Details: londolozi.com, $774 per night, all-inclusive

At a Music Festival 
During Wanderlust, a three-day summer music festival in Lake Tahoe, Shiva Rea and John Friend lead classes for upward of 2,500 concertgoers between shows by indie rock stars like Spoon and Broken Social Scene.
