Exercise Of Yoga To Increase Height:

By creating suppleness while controlling your breath and stretching your body through its full range of motions, yoga helps in increasing height at many levels. The deep inhalation involved in yoga releases the stress that causes tension in your back muscles, thus removing the obstacle to enhance growth of the body. A number of yoga postures can help in increasing your height by keeping your body upright. Given below are yoga poses for increasing height.

1. Surya Namaskar:

Surya Namaskar is being practiced for centuries and involves 12 different postures which should be performed in a chronological manner.

How To Do:

  • Stand with your face towards the sun and your feet touching each other.
  • Bringing your hands near your ears, do the namaskar or in other words touch a palm with the other, index finger to index finger and little finger to little finger.
  • Inhale and raise your arms upwards.
  • Now bend backwards and stretch your arms above your head.
  • While bending forward exhale slowly and try to touch the ground by keeping your hands in line with your feet and your head touching the knees.
  • Inhale and slowly move your right leg back without a jerk.
  • Keep your hands and feet in such a position that only your toes touch the ground. Having done so, slowly raise your head as much as you can.
  • Now get your head back to the normal position.
  • Push your left leg backwards, making it parallel to your right leg with only your toes touching the ground and exhale while doing this step.
  • Keeping your arms straight, raise your hips and align your head with your arms forming an arch and push yourself up.
  • Now, exhale and lower your body to the ground. Touch the ground with your feet, knees, chest forehead and palms.
  • Inhale and raise your head backwards as far as possible.
  • Pushing yourself up as much as possible, rest only on your palms and feet.
  • Inhale and slowly bend the left leg at your knee. Bring your feet together and lift the leg upwards.

2. Sukhasana:

Sukhasana is the centre position from where all other yoga poses originate. This position helps in controlling your breathing and tones your lower back and hips, thus helping the cartilage in those areas to decompress.
