Danish Stig Åvall Severinsen, MSc Biology & PhD Medicine, is 4x freediving world champion, best-selling author and multiple Guinness World Record Holder - including the longest free dive under ice and the first person in the world to hold their breath for longer than 20 minutes.
In 2010, Stig founded Breatheology, the online platform teaching optimal health and performance through better breathing, breath holding and mental training. No longer focusing on breaking records, Stig is now fully focused on teaching the world to breathe better, one breath at a time.
