10 Best Yoga Poses to Grow Taller

Are you ashamed of your height? Want to grow taller in a natural way? Practice yoga and you will get wonderful results within a few months. Here are 10 best yoga poses that can help you increase your height to a great extent:

1. ‘Sun Salutation’ or ‘Surya Namaskara’

This yoga pose has been practiced since ancient times for a number of reasons and increasing height is one of the most common causes among them. This is basically a series or sequence of 12 different ‘asanas’ or postures, which need to be performed at least twice a day – at the sunrise and in the evening.

2. ‘Hand to Foot Pose’ or ‘Hastapadasana’

If the upper part of your body is shorter than the lower part, you need to practice this asana regularly. It is known to work on each and every section of our body – starting from the head up to the toe. Hence, you become able to gain more height and look better.

3. ‘Easy Pose’ or ‘Sukhasana’

The Easy Pose, also called ‘Pleasant Pose’ or ‘Decent Pose’, is the basic posture of yoga from which all other postures are developed. By practicing this asana regularly, you can take a control over your breathing. It also helps in toning up the lower back as well as hip regions, which eventually boosts your height by decompressing the cartilage.

4. ‘Wheel Pose’ or ‘Chakrasana’

This posture is extremely helpful in increasing body height, no matter what your age is. It involves bending over either in a forward or in a backward direction. As a result, the elasticity of spinal cord increases a lot and the body becomes highly flexible. Both of these contribute to the height significantly.

5. ‘Mountain Pose’ or ‘Talasana’

This is one of the easiest yoga postures that you can practice since the early days for increasing your height. It has been found that this asana can make the spinal cord and limbs (arms and legs) stronger. It also helps in making the whole body agile, which is really beneficial for height gain.

6. ‘Tree Pose’ or ‘Vriksasana’

When it comes to growing taller with yoga practices, the tree pose can be a great option for you. Usually, this posture focuses on the calf muscles and leg muscles and plays a key role in toughening them. As these muscles become stronger, your chance of gaining height also goes up.

7. ‘Triangle Pose’ or ‘Trikonasana’

As the name suggests, our body gets a triangular form while performing this asana. It is highly beneficial for shorter people as it increases body height at a rapid pace. Apart from this, the pose also helps in reducing stress, enhancing balance and improving posture.

8. ‘Revolved Triangle Pose’ or ‘Parivrtta Trikonasana’

It is just the reverse of the previous pose in which your body gets the shape of an inverted triangle. The asana provides strength to the back as well as lower back of the body and makes the balancing capacity better. All these result into increased height.

9. ‘Downward-Facing Dog Pose’ or ‘Adhomukha Svanasana’

This asana is also known as the simple ‘dog pose’. It not only stretches out the muscles and makes them stronger, but also helps in boosting the circulation of blood throughout the body. Therefore, you can expect a considerable change in your height.

10. ‘Cat Pose’ or ‘Bidalasana’

Like the dog pose, you can also carry out the cat pose to get an enviable height. During the practice of this asana, the spinal cord gets completely extended in both forward as well as backward directions. It facilitates the expansion of every single cartilage disc present in the spinal column, which ultimately increases height.
