Liberal Yoga Instructor Teaches on Video While Free-Bleeding for “Equality”

If it isn’t one thing it’s another.

Liberal yoga instructor Steph Gongora isn’t ashamed of her period, and doesn’t think other women should be either.

Gongora shared a controversial video of herself on Instagram last week in which she performs a series of yoga moves while “free bleeding” — not using a cup, tampon or pad while menstruating — through her white yoga pants. According to

“I am a woman, therefore, I bleed,” she captioned the video. “It’s messy, it’s painful, it’s terrible and 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.”

Gongora doesn’t understand why women are afraid to talk about tampons, or feel the need skip events for fear of needing a tampon or bleeding through their clothes. After all it’s no different than a little poop in the pants.

Any women out there with an opinion? What do the guys think?
