Uma texana está gerando muita polêmica nas redes sociais. Stephanie Góngora está usando o seu Instagram oficial para dar aulas de Yoga de um jeito diferente…
Todos os vídeos, ela aparece em seu período menstrual e não usa absorvente “para tentar quebrar um tabu que a sociedade impôs”, segundo a própria Stephanie.
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, all the while holding onto this tight lipped, painted on smile. . Tampons? What are those. We don’t say those words out loud. Hide them. In the back pocket of your purse, in the corner of the bathroom drawer, at the very bottom of your shopping cart (please let me get a female cashier). . Events or engagements get missed. I’ll tell myself it’s the PMS, sure, but it has more to with the risk of being “caught,” at what…I’m not quite sure. . And I’m lucky. . Over 100 million young women around the globe miss school or work for lack of adequate menstrual supplies, & fear of what might happen if the world witnesses A NATURAL BODILY FUNCTION. . WHY? . Because hundreds of years of culture have made us embarrassed to bleed. Have left us feeling dirty and ashamed. . STOP PRETENDING. Stop using silly pet names 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. . START talking about it. Educate your daughters. Make them understand that it can be both an inconvenience and a gift, but NEVER something to be ashamed about. Educate your sons so they don’t recoil from the word tampon. So when a girl bleeds through her khaki shorts in third period (pun intended), they don’t perpetuate the cycle of shame and intolerance. . This #StartSomethingSunday , I want to highlight @corawomen . . Cora Women is a 100% Organic tampon company. . But that’s not all. They are also breaking barriers. Making it ok to talk about periods, even on social media. Providing personalized, delivered tampon/pad orders right to your door. AND for every box purchased, donating a box of sustainable pads to girls who can’t afford menstruation products. . Fuck yeah. That’s the kind of stuff I can galvanize behind, no money or even product needed. Just a mission I support on a topic we should ALL be talking about. . More ⬇️
“Eu sou uma mulher, portanto, eu sangro. É sujo, doloroso, terrível e é lindo. E mesmo assim, você não saberia. Porque eu escondo”, escreveu a instrutora em um dos seus vídeos mais polêmicos.
O caso bombou tanto, que se tornou um dos assuntos mais comentados em todo o mundo na última segunda-feira (13).
Congrats! You’ve done it! . Day 14 of #heartsoverhands is the final day and we invite you to DO YOUR FAVORITE THING related to Inversions or Pressing. . . You can re-visit a drill you’d like to work on more, just get some play time in upside down, or show us something new. . I’d like to thank everyone SO much for the amazing participation we had in this challenge. . . Please remember that Pressing (and Inversions) are a journey. They take time, consistency, and patience. And they in no way validate your worth as a yogi or a person! So stay positive, do your drills (or don’t!), and try to always have at least a little fun. ???? . If you’re looking for more information on Handstands or Pressing, make sure to check out my books via the link in my profile bio. . . ALSO, this Wednesday, @erinkellyart and I will be launching our NEW ONLINE VIDEO PROGRAM. . . The first two packages up there will be about Inversions (Level 1&2). They will cover Headstand, Pincha, Arm Balance, and Handstand, and are organized like mini versions of our traveling workshops. ❤ . So stay tuned in to our accounts or websites for more info! . .

Thanks to our Sponsors: . . @fitppl @infinitystrap @kosusaofficial @thebeginnersguidetoyoga @yogisurprise
“Comece a falar sobre o assunto. Eduque suas filhas. Faça elas entenderem que a menstruação pode ser inconveniente e um presente ao mesmo tempo, mas nunca algo para se envergonhar. Eduque seus filhos para que eles não se enojem ao ouvirem a palavra ‘absorvente'”, escreveu a texana após receber duras críticas.
