5 Simple and Effective Yoga Asanas to Grow Taller At Any Age

Tall people are more appealing to us all. According to one study, being tall not only provides a physical advantage, but it is also associated with a positive outlook and a higher IQ. Your genetic make-up, as well as other factors such as exercise, nutrition, and environmental conditions, all influence your height. It rises rapidly during puberty and generally declines after puberty is completed.

If you had a moderate increase in height during puberty and are looking to increase your height, you've come to the right place. Yoga can help you achieve a taller frame. Yoga will relax you and provide relief from emotional and mental stress.

Note: All the asanas and pranayama should be performed under the guidance of your certified yoga teacher.

1. Tadasana (Mountain pose)

Tadasana, also known as the Mountain Pose, stretches all of your body's muscles. The elongation of the pose feels good to your body, and it also helps the body produce growth hormones.

How To Do Tadasan For Increase Height

Begin by standing tall with your neck, waist, and legs in a straight line. Keep your hands on the sides of your body and your feet together. Inhale deeply and raise your arms to the sky. Now, slowly raise your heels and stand on your toes. Extend your body as much as you can. Return to your original position.

Precautions For Tadasan

If you suffer from insomnia, you should avoid it.

People who suffer from headaches should avoid mountain pose.

If your blood pressure is low, don't do it.

Pregnant women should not perform Tadasana.

Don't be too strict with yourself.

2. Bhujangasana (Cobra pose)

Bhujangasana stretches your lower back, upper back, and stomach muscles. It aids in the reduction of bad fat around the waist. It is also one of the best yoga asanas for growing taller.
