Gaukhar Akhmetova-Atherton (known on Instagram as just Gasya) is a current mom and former Cirque de Soleil star. Specializing in the acrobatic arts of hand-balancing and contortions, she toured the world starting at the age of 17. Now, instead of wowing stadiums, she's wowing social media with her trippy stunts, and brings her kids along for the ride.

Gasya is married to fellow gymnast Andrew Atherton, and they're unofficially training their kids, 3-year-old Kamali and 1-year-old Kaysen, to join the family business.

"They're both amazing children," she told the Daily Mail. "Kamali is already showing signs of following in our footsteps. She loves to dance and will always join me when I'm training. I'm not a pushy mum and try to make everything we do together fun."

Here are her coolest videos that will make you wish you could be your mom's backpack.
