Gasya Akhmetova-Atherton has had a particularly interesting life: From the age of 17, she performed with the Cirque du Soleil, putting her exquisite gymnastics skills to the test on stage, each and every night. Now, she’s a mom — but that doesn’t mean she’s stopped performing. In fact, she even incorporates her kids into the show. Akhmetova-Atherton shares images of her and her children’s mind-and-body-bending stunts to an audience of 27,000 on Instagram, including plenty of hand stands and insane body contortions. This video and these images are proof that being a mom *really is* about being flexible.
