Talk about strength training!

Acroyoga instructors Lizzy Tomber and Josh Young are also husband and wife, and they took their practice to the next level by continuing to do the movements while Tomber was nine months pregnant with their first child.



"Feeling so lucky to still feel healthy and strong at #36weeks, and most importantly to have a partner like @acropediaorg who I trust endlessly, and is supporting me doing what feels safe and comfortable in our practice!" Tomber captioned one photo of Younger lifting her in the air as she did a handstand.





Tomber explained that her followers don't need to worry about her practice being unsafe – her doctor gave them the all-clear to do acroyoga during pregnancy.

"Today I showed my doctor pictures of what we do and she loved it! She talked about the importance of staying healthy and active, and wanted a picture to show her patients who are worried about working out," Tomber posted in December.



But that doesn't mean all pregnant women should be lining up to try it.

"That being said, I have been practicing Acro for 7 years and only doing skills I have practiced 100+ times without falling," she continued. "I am also avoiding anything on my belly (for obvious reasons). So that is the right answer for me."

Tomber gave birth to their son David seven weeks ago, and now the couple are incorporating him into their poses.



"Never too young to start playing! @acrodavid went to his first Acro jam today and wanted to fly bird all on his own to show off his neck strength! #6weeksold #acrobaby," Tomber captioned another shot.

Doing the thing I love most in the world with the people I love the most! Thanks @acroyogaaddicts for the picture

It's all come full circle for the couple, who now teach acroyoga across the world (Young taught Lena Dunham her moves!) after meeting through the practice.
