A few inches of increased height can really do wonders and we bet you would certainly love it. Yoga exercises plays and important role to increase height. Some yogic practices, especially the standing yoga and asanas are extremely beneficial for growth of height. Yoga asanas focus on increasing the flexibility of the body. These help in attaining a good, taller posture. Resulting in a taller frame, yoga asanas realign and straighten the spinal cord, which may have bent a little because of bad posture.
Here are 5 effective asanas of Baba Ramdev yoga for height increase in a natural manner.
The exercise involves stretching all the body muscles from head to toe. This elongation generates posture pressure in all body parts which facilitates the production of the growth hormone.
– Stand erect on the floor with your legs, waist and neck aligned in a straight line. Keep both the feet together, hands on the sides and palm facing the thighs.
– While inhaling, raise both of your arms together in the upward direction, parallel to each other.
– Slowly lift your heels and stand on your toes. Stretch your body upward as far as possible. Keep your legs and arms straight.
Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)
One of the most famous yoga poses, the asana works on abs, upper back, and lower back muscles and helps in cutting back the bad fat around the stomach. It is also one of the best asanas suggested by Baba Ramdev yoga for increasing height.
Steps to do Bhujangasana – Lying prone on the ground, stretch your body with the front of your feet on the floor with your hands under your shoulder.
– Keep your lower body pressed firmly into the floor.
– Inhale and lift your chest and most of the torso off the floor by straightening your arms. Make sure your pubis does not leave the floor and keep the back bend even along the spine.
– Make sure your belly button is tucked in, abs are tight and shoulders are rolled back. Bend the neck backward to work around the neck muscles.
– Hold the pose for 30 seconds.
– Exhale while coming back to the prone position.
The tree pose works wonders in increasing height. When the leg is folded and placed over the other thigh, the entire weigh is borne by the second leg. This helps in strengthening your muscles. Further, when the neck is flexed upwards, the pituitary gland (responsible for producing the growth hormone) gets activated.
– Stand with feet together on the floor. Keep hands at the side and breathe normally.
– Stand up firmly on the left leg and fold the right leg at your knees. Bring the sole of the right foot on the inner thighs.
– Balance on the left foot and raise both arms over the head, elbows unbent and join your palms together.
– Hold this posture with the entire body stretched for a few seconds while breathing gently. Repeat the procedure with the opposite leg.
Sarvang Asana and Head stand
Together referred to as Shirshasana, both the poses involve inversion against gravity. This exerts direct pressure on the pituitary gland.
– Lie flat on the back in shavasana with your palms facing downward.
– Slowly lift your legs, buttock and back so that you come up high on your shoulders, support the back with hands.
– Keep straightening the legs and spine. Your weight should be supported on your shoulders and upper arms.
– If you feel any strain in the neck come out of the posture. Stay in the posture 15 to 30 seconds.
Also known as the Camel Pose, it involves the backward bending of the neck which triggers the master (pituitary) gland. People who suffer from fluctuating blood pressure or have back injuries should avoid this pose.
– Sit in vajrasana (kneel on the yoga mat). Stand on your knees as you inhale. Draw in your tail bone towards the pub, as if being pulled from the navel.
– Keep your back arched and arms straight, sliding your palms over your feet.
– Stay in this posture for a few seconds, breathing normally.
– Breathe out and slowly come back to the initial pose.
Important Note- Certain yoga postures improve blood circulation, stimulate the growth hormone and make the spine stress free which may help in increasing your height but they alone cannot guarantee significant results. Yoga, coupled with a diet rich in proteins and carbohydrates like milk, egg, daal during the formative years can help. It’s great to get your kids introduced to yoga when they are young and encourage them to have a healthy diet for the best results.”
