Should I discontinue doing yoga during the time between ovulating and waiting to find out if I am pregnant or not?
Unless you have a history of miscarriage, I would continue with your practice. I've worked with women practicing yoga up to one week before their delivery, with out any problems. Only postures that put pressure on the belly are contraindicated after the 3rd month of pregnancy.
If you have a history of miscarriage, I would not do postures that put pressure on the belly or do a strenuous yoga practice while trying to conceive.
Most importantly, trust your intuition and do what feels right.
Ahimsa, the yogic practice of non violence must be adhered to when engaging in the practice of hatha yoga. Respect your body's limitations and inner wisdom, if something feels wrong or dangerous, please do not do it.
Please consult your health care practitioner before starting a yoga, pranayama or other exercise program.
