Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As your age is 28 years you cannot increase your height by yoga or any other exercises. In men the skeletal maturity (growth plate maturity) is attained at the age of 18 to 22 years after which bones cannot grow further. Hence, there is cessation of the vertical growth in humans.

You have not mentioned your height, so I cannot determine your BMI. If at all your BMI is towards medium to obese, definitely through yoga and stretching exercises you can remodel your body so that you can appear taller rather than short and stout.
