As long as you are staying within your limits and not pushing to the extreme, exercise is great for TTC. It is recommended that you don't do hot yoga (or super hot showers, hot baths, hot tubs, etc) during the TWW because raised body temperature during early pregnancy can cause neural tube defects in the fetus. It should be safe during AF until you near your fertile period, though.

Yes you should not do hot yoga (or super hot showers, hot baths, hot tubs, etc) as it is not good for a pregnant women. i would rather suggest to do simple yoga and other exercises. You should engage yourself in one or the other activities. This is the best exercise as of my view.:)

Hey, I hope you are soon able to conceive. Exercising is actually very good for you. However, light exercising. Yoga is a good option! This will help you keep down as well. Apart from this make sure you are eating well. Your diet should consist of important nutrients as well. Also, drink a lot of water! Apart from this if you have been trying for over a year maybe try to visit a doctor. He/she will really help you in determining the issue. The doctor will also help in understanding where the issue might be. They will run your tests and see if things are balanced. Good luck to you. Don't worry! Sending baby dust your way.

Yoga is good. However, you have to avoid certain exercises. There's a whole guide of exercises available on YouTube. Light exercise is the preference. It helps you stay stress-free and fit. That's extremely important! Good luck to you! I hope this helps.
