Denmark’s Stig Severinsen (born 1973) holds a master’s degree in biology, as well as a Ph.D. in Medicine, but it’s neither of these accomplishments that have brought him global recognition.  That spotlight came when Stig became the Guinness World Record holder for the longest breath hold in world history — a staggering 22 minutes!  He also holds many more Guinness records, many of which were achieved by combining his knowledge of yoga and physiology in freediving.  He’s also the author of the 2010 book Breatheology – The Art of Conscious Breathing (Amazon), wherein he proposes that “through working with the breath, a link can be created between body and mind that enables a person to control stress, increase energy, perform better physically and mentally, alleviate pain and improve health.”  Watch above as Severinsen uses his skills to explore dangerous underwater crystal palaces beneath a huge iceberg.  And below you can see how he won his now legendary 22-minute breath hold.  To learn much more about Stig, and how to get the skills needed to awaken your own inner dolphin, be sure to visit  (Source: Kottke)
