Default Re: Is Yoga Hard or Very Hard?

One approach would be to have no techniques, but as with martial arts, to state that every 10 points you invest in the skill set enables you to buy a keen perk that simply isn't available to others. Most would be minor feats such Autotrance, a "half-level" of Breath-Holding that gives 1.5 times breath-holding duration, fire-walking, and Unusual Training perks granting limited access to skills like Body Control and Mental Strength. For those who've invested in some advantage that parallels the role of Trained by a Master – which could be any of Blessed, Illuminated, Reawakened, True Faith, or Visualization, depending on how you see the yoga – other perks might even be Special Exercises that cover siddhis up to an including such advantages as Flight.
