Stig Severinsen is on a mission. He wants to share with freedivers and “normal” people the world over, the advantages of efficient breathing. We ran into Stig here at DEMA 2010, where he is promoting his new book Breatheology: The Art of Conscious Breathing.

A four time World Record champion freediver, Stig holds adavnced degrees in both medicine (PhD) and biology (MS). This combination gives Severinsen a fairly unique perspective on the sport of freediving and is what has propelled his interest in breathing. For the last decade Stig has both practiced and investigated the beneficial effects of breathing and breath-hold on the mind and body.
