Morning sunlight illuminating the walls of your yurt is the signature wake-up call at this 100-acre ranch in the mountains of western Montana. Roll out of your platform bed for a guided walk amid the evergreens, then practice your asanas under the tutelage of experienced Ashtanga, Hatha, Iyengar, and Svaroopa instructors. The ranch has hosted yoga seminars since 1975, the same year its owners cofounded Yoga Journal, and its much-lauded cookbook is the source for ranch dishes ranging from roast chicken and apple pie to Indian curries and African yam balls. Weeklong sessions on everything from astrology to shamanism run throughout the summer, culminating in the Celebration of Yoga retreat in August: $1,350 per person for yoga instruction, meals, and accommodations in a yurt, tent, or tepee. 406-442-8196,
