Executive Warrior – The Bow Breath

by Steven Kuo  - February 28, 2022

It's now time to condition your body.

The second step in the Executive Warrior Breath sequence is called the Bow Breath.

If you remember from the first breath, the Sky Breath, you learned about warming up your internal organs for resilience. Now, we take it up a notch.

Warm up Bow Breath

Ancient warriors placed a high significance on this routine when preparing for battle. This sequence will prepare your body appropriately for exercise and general physical resistance to injury as a modern executive warrior. There are also excellent eye movement exercises included in this breath exercise that reduce tension, improve balance, and minimize eye strain caused by too much screen time.

My master told me that the Bow breath build more than just muscles, but extends to condition your fascia, the connective tissue that links everything together and gives it integrity. When you perform this exercise regularly, you improve physical resilience to injury by strengthening the fascia. Allowing you to engage in sports or other physical activities without getting easily injured.

So, what do you have to do? This week's vlog will go in-depth into the steps. But to give you a hint, here are some tips:

  • Stretch your body out in opposite directions as you practice
  • Combine your breath with movement, don't do the movement without breath.
  • Make sure to notice the holding out of breath ("resisting the urge to breath in when your lungs are empty")
Stretch - Bow Breath

When you're done with the exercise, you will begin to notice that you have heightened sensitivity. You become an expert on what goes on inside your body. You also become conscious of what's happening around you.

And this heightened sense of self-awareness is foundational to building advanced leadership Emotional Intelligence for Executive Warriors.
