Broken seal during yoga

I posted a few months ago because my small Moon Cup US was leaking and thanks to all the great advice I received I bought a large Lady Cup which I love. I used it last month and had not one leak!

Today, though, my period began and I also had my weekly yoga class. As we were doing Warrior II Pose, I heard this weird soft gurgling sound and then felt like my cup was leaking. After class I checked, and sure enough, my cup had leaked. It wasn't a big deal because I was wearing a cloth liner - but has this happened to anyone else? Is there a way to avoid it? On the first few days of my period I need to empty my cup every four hours and now I'm thinking that maybe if I'd emptied it before class (I had been wearing it for three hours) it wouldn't have leaked but I'm not sure if that would've solved the problem. I'd like to be able to do yoga with a cup without worrying about it.
