6 Yoga Poses to Make you Look Taller
The fastest and easiest way to look taller and feel better is to change your posture. Standing up tall, and dropping your shoulders can dramatically increase your self confidence, make you look slimmer and more assertive.
Yoga can definitely lengthen, tone and stretch your body to improve your posture and make you look taller. Your shoulders play a role in determining your posture. Yoga causes your shoulders to roll back instead of forward, which gives you an instant appearance of being taller.
Here are 6 yoga postures to make you look taller.
Reverse Prayer Pose – Pashchima Namaskarasana
Reverse Prayer Pose loosens your shoulder joints by increasing the flexibility in your shoulders, chest, and upper back. You can modify this pose, by trying to bring your palms together behind your back, by clasping opposite elbows.
Downward Dog – Adho Mukha Svanasana
Downward dog is the most common in yoga, as you hear about it the most. It’s great for tight shoulders. If you only have time for one pose, then this is it. To get more of a stretch in your shoulders and chest muscles, bend your knees and try to sink your chest toward your thighs.
Upward Dog – Urdvha Mukha Svanasana
Upward dog improves your posture by opening up your chest muscles and shoulders. It also strengthens your arms, wrists, shoulders, and chest muscles.
For added benefits; keep your shoulders away from your ears, drop your shoulder blades down your back and really open up your shoulders.
Side Angle Pose with a Twist – Parivrtta Parsvakonasana
Side angle pose with a twist opens the front of your body and works your lower body, but when you add the wrapping modification, it becomes a shoulder opener as well.
Inclined Plane Pose – Poorvottanasana
Inclined plane pose builds strength in your shoulders, arms, chest area, wrists, and ankle joints. It also stretches your shoulders. You can modify this pose by only lifting your hips as high as you can. You might not be perfectly flat, but you are still opening your shoulders. For added benefits, try not to crunch your neck; slowly let your head fall back.
Seated Spinal Twist Pose – Ardha Matsyendrasana
This pose releases tension in your shoulders, neck, and lower back. It relieves mild backaches and hip pain by strengthening and stretching the muscles of the lower back. Seated twist helps with your lateral movement (that is, side-to-side or twisting movement), which is normally the first type of flexibility that is lost in your back.
Remember to breath, as we have a tendency to hold our breath when we do twisting poses and don’t over twist your neck, as the focus of this pose is your shoulders.
