Yoga is neither a religion nor a cult. The Complete Yoga Tutor makes that point very clearly, defining yoga as a set of techniques that, when practised correctly, can enable the practitioner to gain not just physical, but also mental and spiritual powers. 

The Complete Yoga Tutor By Mark Kan Gaia Books, 256pp, 850 baht ISBN: 978-1-85675-330-2

As its name suggests, the book is meant to be a bible on the subject, a comprehensive guide to every aspect of this mode of exercise/philosophy. Written by Mark Kan, founder of Dharma Yoga London as well as a mentor-teacher at the Dharma Yoga teacher-training faculty in New York, this informative, 256-page volume is divided into six main chapters, dealing with the history and origins of yoga, yoga anatomy, the science of yoga, asanas (yoga postures), the art of breathing and teaching yoga.
