Incredible Women. Incredible Lifestyle. Every Day


Just prior to the Sky Grace 2023 Rhythmic Gymnastics Tournament, which will take place in Shanghai in November 2023, KASAA had a meeting with the show's chief commentator, legendary Yana Batyrshina. During her sporting career, she earned 180 medals, including a silver medal at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, 7 gold medals at the World Championship, 5 top awards at the European Championship, and over 40 cups. She took over as head coach of the Brazilian rhythmic gymnastics team at the age of twenty. 

Last month Yana, a television host and Strong Figures festival ambassador, gave us a tour of her beautiful city while we chatted about her family, her sports career, the keys to good health, and a lot more.

This interview is dedicated to all the parents of future champions and those who are on their way to vying for their medals.


If you assume freediving is just like snorkeling (but much deeper), think twice. Freediving is a completely unique approach to experiencing the underwater environment. You'll dive deeper, stay down longer, and feel like you're a part of the ocean.

Freedivers integrate with the underwater environment. They have spectacular encounters with shy marine creatures and can hear all the noises of the ocean, like fish chewing on coral, the tide throbbing at the rocks, and even dolphin and whale cries! 

Freediving is the perfect way to reconnect to the sea and explore the depths of the ocean with minimal impact. Some people freedive for personal challenges, but for many, the true appeal of freediving is in the silence and calm it brings to their hectic lives. Moreover, freediving is a unique sport in that it is one of the few in which women compete at the highest levels and achieve comparable outcomes to men. 

After interviewing Olympic Champions and world-renowned dancers, we'd want to learn the secrets of deep diving from Megane Salmon, one of Mauritius' and Tahiti's most famous freedivers.
