A monastic tradition by certain monks who train upon a board usually colored white, often stretching in various yoga poses and using breathing techniques to strengthen and hone their body. Training this way unlocks a hidden prowess that allows them to strengthen their body further, to keep themselves in good health, and to even harness the energy within them.

Monks who learn this tradition are likely to weaponize the yoga stances they have mastered to conquer their foes in battle.

Bonus Proficiencies[edit]

At 3rd level, you gain proficiency in the Athletics and Acrobatics skills if you don't already have them.

Radiant Salutation[edit]

At 3rd level, as an action, you can spend 1 Ki point to ready a Radiant Salutation to use on any following turn, but not the turn you ready the Salutation on. If the readied Radiant Salutation is not used before a short rest, it is cancelled.

If a Radiant Salutation is ready, you can spend an action, or bonus action to attack by releasing a ball of radiant energy as a ranged spell attack with a range of 120 feet. You are proficient with it, and you add your Dexterity modifier to its attack rolls, and twice your modifier to your damage rolls. It is radiant damage, and its damage dies are 3d4. The dies will change as you gain monk levels, as shown in the Martial Arts column of the monk table. In addition, you regain hit points equal to your proficiency bonus when using this ability.

Deep Breathing[edit]

At 6th level, as an action, you can regain hit points equal to your monk level. In addition, for rounds equal to your monk level divided by 2 rounded up, your speed increases by 10 feet, and your damage with an unarmed strike increases by your proficiency bonus + your wisdom modifier. You also double your proficiency bonus on unarmed strike attacks. You must finish a short rest before you can use this feature again.

Grounding Lunge[edit]

At 11th level, if you successfully hit at least three unarmed strikes on a target on your turn, you may inflict a Stunning Strike on the target with no Ki cost. In addition to the stun provided, they are also knocked prone with this feature. If you succeeded on a Stunning Strike on that target on the same turn previously and this Stunning Strike succeeds, you regain one Ki point.

Teaching Fitness[edit]

At 11th level, during a short rest, you can offer to teach any willing allies some yoga lessons. Participants must take 30 minutes of their rest in this lesson. At the end of the lesson, you and your allies gain temporary hit points equal to your proficiency bonus + your wisdom modifier. You must finish a long rest before you can use this feature again.

Prismatic Afterimages[edit]

At 17th level, as an action, you can spend 3 Ki points to release 10 colorful afterimages of yourself onto one, or multiple targets of your choice. These afterimages are ranged spell attacks with a range of 60 feet. You are proficient with it, and you add your Dexterity modifier to its attack and damage rolls. It is force damage, and each projectile except your final projectile is 1d8. The final projectile's damage is 1d20. This attack can not affected by any reflection abilities.
