But you still want to get taller. So what do you do? You exercise! There are many ways to get taller naturally by using the right stretching exercises. Below are just a few stretching exercises to help you get taller naturally.

Yoga & Pilates

There are a variety of yoga and pilates exercises we can do to get taller. These stretching exercises will get your spine right, by aligning your spine correctly and prepare it for elongation.

1. Sit / Easy Position Sukahasana
This is a starting position that helps focus awareness on breathing and the body, strengthen the lower back and open the groin and hips.

-Sit cross-legged with hands on knees.
-Focus on your on your breath.
-Keep your spine straight and push the sit bones down to the floor.
-Allow the knees to gently lower.
-If the knees rise above your hips, sit on a cushion as it will help support your back and hips.
-Take 5 - 10 slow, deep breaths.
-On the next inhale, raise your arms over your head.
-Exhale and bring your arms down slowly.
-Repeat 5-7 times.

2. Dog and Cat

This will increase your spine's flexibility. These are two poses, one following the other.

-Begin on your hands and knees.

-Keep your hands just in front of your shoulders, your legs about hip width -apart.

-As you inhale, tilt the tailbone and pelvis up, and let the spin curl down, dropping the stomach low, and lift your head up

-Stretch gently

-As you exhale, move into cat by reversing the spinal bend, tilting the pelvis down, drawing the spine up and pulling the chest and stomach in

-Repeat several times, flowing smoothly from dog to cat and cat back into dog

Chin-ups & Pull-ups

These exercises work the shoulders, as well as the back, arms, and obliques. You can experiment with these different types, but only do one exercise type per day. They should be done every other day, or every 2 days, depending on your strength and experience. As with yoga and pilates, doing these exercises regularly can and will help you get taller naturally.

1. Chin-up

-Step up and grasp bar with an overhand grip.

-Pull down until the chin is above the bar.

-Lower body until arms and shoulders are fully extended. Repeat.

2. Close Grip Chin-up

-Step up and grasp parallel bars.

-Pull body up until elbow are at the sides.

-Lower body until arms and shoulders are fully extended. Repeat.

3. Pull-up

-Step up and grasp bar with a wide overhand grip.

-Pull body until neck reaches the height of the hands.

-Lower body until arms and shoulders are fully extended. Repeat.

The Corpse

This exercise relaxes and refreshes the body and mind, relieves stress and anxiety, and quiets the mind. Possibly the most important posture, the Corpse. Usually performed at the end of a session, the goal is conscious relaxation. Many people find the "conscious" part the most difficult because it is very simple to drift off to sleep. This exercise is a great way to warm down after your vigorous stretching exercises. Think of it as a supplement to your health and better well being as well as a step towards getting taller.

-Begin by lying on your back, feet apart, arms at your sides with palms facing up.

-Close your eyes and take several slow, deep breaths.

-Allow your body to sink into the ground. Try focusing on specific part of your body and willing it to relax.

-For example, start with your feet, imagine the muscles and skin relaxing, letting go and slowly melting into the floor.

-From your feet, move on to your calves, thighs and so on up to your face and head.

-Breathe and relax.

-Stay in the pose for at least 5-10 minutes.
