I am 19 years of age ..my height is 5'8 ..suggest me some yogas so that i can increase my height ..

Height increasing yoga or yoga exercises that help to increase height are being tried out by people the world over. If you are want to gain height naturally, try out some height increasing yoga and incorporate this into your exercise program. Yoga helps to stretch your body through its full range of motion. Yoga also helps to decompress the spine which in turn helps to make you look taller. Keep in mind that what makes a person taller is the not the length of that person’s arms, but the length of his/her bones. Remember that yoga will not make your bones longer. This can only be achieved by surgery. Growing tall with yoga is possible as the yoga exercises teach you how to stretch and lengthen your spine. Height increasing yoga also teaches you how to carry yourself properly. It teaches you the correct posture and how to walk properly and how to sit properly as well. After only a few lessons of height increasing yoga you will become aware of your own posture and you will start walking better and standing straight. This itself will make you appear taller to yourself and to the people around you.

Do check with your medical professional before you start on any yoga exercise program. One height increasing exercise that will help you is Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation).  Some others that have been known to help are Sukhasana (The Easy Pose), Trikosana (The Triangle Pose) and Dog and Cat Pose.

Height increasing Pilates exercises have helped people to increase their height but in a majority of the cases, these people had already suffered a decrease in height due to age. As you grow older, the discs in the spinal vertebrae lose elasticity and hydration. The chest and shoulder muscles become tight and the back muscles become stretched and weak. The neck loses mobility as well. Pilates exercises help to strengthen all these core muscles. The muscles along the back are strengthened and the front of the body is stretched after doing the exercises. Over a period of time, these muscles help to correct posture and therefore are effective in restoring lost height. Perform the following three exercises regularly along with other height increasing exercises. This will result in a conditioning and strengthening of your spine. The three Pilates exercises are Scapular Isolation Exercise, The Hundred Abdominal Exercise and the Breast Stroke Prep Exercise.
