Practicing your chaturanga position perched atop Rockefeller Center before the crowd of tourists pile in may be an odd way to find 'inner peace.'  Here is a list of five other odd places including the shower and "in traffic" to get your OM-on, from a May 7 blog post on Healthy Self, a section of US fitness magazine Self's site:  http://www.self.com/health/blogs/healthyself/2010/05/5-weird-places-you-should-do-y.html

If heights and odd places aren't your thing, get grounded with free weekly yoga classes at yoga gear Lululemon Athletica shops in Australia, Canada, China and the United States. To find a location near you, go to: http://www.lululemon.com/stores/
