How To Gain Height Naturally Through Yoga – 3 Yoga Exercises

Yoga Gain Height Naturally

For centuries people have used the techniques of yoga to improve their body and overall well-being. Yoga stretches your entire body, and especially your spine, and gives it the balance and strength it needs to grow.

If you are someone who is wondering how to gain height naturally, you should consider an exercise program that involves yoga.

Yoga is a series of fluid movements that centers your body. The focus is to create flexibility while controlling your breath. This flexibility and control helps you with gaining height on many levels.

Yoga stretches your body, especially your back, through its full range of motion. This helps your body fully decompress from the downward pressure of gravity that causes you to actually shrink. 

Once your body is relieved of this strain, the cartilage in your back and joints can start to lengthen and thicken which makes you taller.

Furthermore, the deep inhalation and focus of yoga helps your body relieve the stress that causes tension in your back muscles. This tension would normally hinder growth, but with these height gain exercises you can overcome it.

Additionally, yoga strengthens your spine which improves your posture. If you want to know how to gain height, you should know that it all begins with good posture.

People have the ability to get a height gain of several inches just by having the correct posture. A spine which is aligned is then prepared to grow longer.

In this article, we will show you how to gain height through three specific yoga exercises. These three vary in degree of difficulty, so that you can start with the grow taller exercise that is best for you.

Also, it is important that you always check with your physician before beginning this, or any, exercise plan.

1. Sukhasana

The first exercise is called the Sukhasana and it is the “centered” position from which all other yoga moves originate.

It is important that you learn this position because it will help you control your breathing and make you better aware of your body.  Furthermore, it tones your lower back and hips, helping the cartilage in those areas to decompress.

You will want to sit on the floor in a cross-legged position, your hands resting on your knees.

Sukhasana - Gain Height Through Yoga

Focus on controlling your breathing so that it is deep and at an even pace. Keep your spine perfectly aligned and push your buttocks to the floor and gently lower your knees.

Take several, at least 5, deep breaths and then inhale as you raise your arms upward and over your head. Bring your arms down gently and steadily, exhaling as you do, and then repeat this entire move 5 to 7 times more.

2. Trikonasana

Also called the Triangle, is the second yoga exercise we will discuss. This is slightly more advanced than the Sukhasana. 

It will help improve your balance and therefore help you have good posture.  Also, it is a very good exercise to use if you want to center yourself and relieve tension.

Trikonasana - Gain Height Through Yoga

To begin, stand up with your legs about 3 to 4 feet apart and your feet parallel to one another.

Then, rotate your left foot 90 degrees to the left and your right foot 45 degrees inward.

Inhale and raise your arms to the side so that they are level and parallel to the floor.

Exhale and turn your head to face down the length of your left arm and check that your left knee is lined up with your left ankle.

Take one deep breath and then stretch towards your left ankle while you tilt your left hip down.

Once you have reached your maximum stretch, rotate your arms so that your left hand can now rest against the inside of your calf and your right arm points towards the ceiling.

Turn your head so that you are looking in the direction of your right arm and take several deep breaths.

Then, inhale and straighten your body followed by an exhale as you lower your arms to your hips.

Pivot on your heels and face forward once more. Then, repeat this movement on the right side of your body .

3. Dog and Cat

The Dog and Cat movements are very popular exercises because they extend your spine fully in two different directions. 

This extension will stretch every cartilage disc in your spinal column.  While these are typically two separate movements, we are combining them together so that your body can get the maximum flexibility and height gain.

Dog And Cat - Gain Height Through Yoga

You will begin the exercise on your hands and knees with your hands slightly ahead of your shoulders and knees hip width apart. Inhale and tilt your pelvis up and curve your spine so that your stomach drops towards the ground and your head is up.

Fully stretch your body, but gently, and then move into the cat position by reversing the curve of your spine.

You should finish with your pelvis down and chest and stomach in. Move your body through this movement fluidly, repeating the full cycle many times .

These three exercises are a very good start to beginning a well-planned exercise regiment. 

However, if you want to learn more about how to gain height using yoga techniques and other related exercises, you should check out the ebook, Grow Taller 4 Idiots.

In the book you will find very thorough explanations of how yoga and other forms of exercise can help you grow and which exercises, including these three, will give you the best results.

Sticking to an exercise program like that in Grow Taller 4 Idiots, may be all that is standing in your way from gaining several more inches.

  • Terry September 21, 2010, 7:34 am

    I have a funny suspicion that the majority of people leaving comments are the same person for some reason.

    Anyway, everyone who keeps asking for suggestions or advice, here’s mine. BUY THE E-BOOK. I’m a 17 year old guy, but I’m only 5 foot 5. I grew an inch and a half in a month thanks to the e-book. I know I’m still very short, but hopwfully I can still grow more. So everyone who asked for advice and people who will ask in future, go buy the e-book, because you’re not going to get any helpful advice by leaving a comment here.

  • Rick August 28, 2011, 7:40 am

    Do the exercises only work for a certain period of time, will it not work if you stop and start?
    I have some of the book, did the exercises for a couple weeks, felt a difference, but since then have been stopping and starting for a couple months and havent felt a difference over that time. If I start doing them regularly again will I have any progress or have I already had my ‘stretch induced growth?’

  • Dave September 6, 2011, 8:06 am

    Hello I’m 31 and I’m 5′ 7.
