First yoga class with cup

I currently have my period for the first time since I started yoga classes, and I was a little apprehensive about how it would go. I normally wear reusable pads, but for exercise, I often change to the Mooncup UK so as not to have the extra bulk of the pad or the risk of an odd position making the pad slip. I've cycled, swum and done keep fit classes successfully with the cup, but yoga involves rather more adventurous positions than any of those, so I wasn't sure. Turns out I needn't have worried - I did the whole class with no discomfort and no leakage. If anything, the cup ended up being more comfortable than usual - usually, I can distinctly feel it inside me, which is why I prefer the pads, but as soon as we started class I didn't notice it any more. Maybe the exercise somehow settled it into a better position. Must see if I can reproduce that feeling without having to do an hour of yoga before work every morning! If so, I might consider giving up my beloved pads after all...
