Former Cirque du Soleil performer and Kazakhstan native Gasya Akhmetova-Atherton is no longer touring with the world’s most fascinating acrobatic circus, instead living in New York City with her husband and two young children.
Although she’s no longer dangling dozens of feet above the crowds and swinging from death-defying heights, though, this super mom still manages to be seriously impressive from her own home!
Akhmetova-Atherton has become an Instagram sensation, garnering a following 27,000 strong as people flock to her page to watch videos of her doing incredibly creative workouts that involve her children.
Plenty of athletic moms and dads make sure their kids stay involved during their workouts by doing things like pushing jogging strollers or even setting up their workouts next to a safe play area. For Akhmetova-Atherton, though, those attempts pale in comparison to her wildly unique stunts!
From handstands to yoga poses, the flexible, incredibly strong mother of two is able to go through workouts reminiscent of her old career all while having a toddler clinging to her back, not just getting an extra workout but also giving the kids a chance to hone their strength and balance skills.
It’s not something we’d necessarily recommend everyone try at home, but it’s certainly fun to watch it from afar!
