Staying fit and fresh for as long as possible is a common dream for most of us, and there are countless ways to get there.
In recent years, yoga has become increasingly popular because of its incredible results for the body.
Steph Gongora, a mother of 5, teaches yoga and has written several books on the subject.
To encourage other women to practice yoga every day of the month, Steph performs her yoga in white clothing to show that she’s not ashamed of her period.
Wants to get rid of period taboos
Talking about women’s periods is becoming more and more common; this is the only way to eliminate the taboos surrounding it. After all, it’s one of the most natural things in life. Without the menstrual cycle, no children would be born.
Steph Gongora contributes to the cause in her own way.
“I am a woman – therefore, I bleed”
The mother-of-five believes no woman should be ashamed of her period.
She posted a clip on Instagram, performing a yoga session as she usually does.
But she’s wearing white clothes, and without anything to hide that she is currently on her period.
In the post, you can read the following (shortened):
“I am a woman. Therefore, I bleed. It’s messy, it’s painful, it’s terrible, & it’s beautiful. And yet, you wouldn’t know because I hide it. I bury things at the bottom of the trash. I breathe, ragged and awkward through the cramps while holding onto this tight-lipped, painted-on smile… STOP PRETENDING. Stop using silly pet names for your period like Aunt Flo because you’re too afraid to say “I’m bleeding” or “vagina.” Stop wasting so much effort hiding the very thing that gives this species continuity.”
Steph simply wants other women to stop being ashamed of their periods.
What do you think about this? Is it madness? Or does it make perfect sense?
