Thanks for query,
After 20 yrs there is no increase in height as there is fusion of epiphysis to long bones.
Even then chances of increase in height is there for about a n year.
Do height increasing exercise like running,jogging,swimming,jumping ropes,
cycling ete.
Take high nourishing diet.
Yoga will not help for increasing height.
Ok and bye.

Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Praveen Tayal's  Response

Thanks for writing to us.

At your age, most of the growing ends of bones have fused and it is quite challenging to increase height at this age. The height usually depends on your parents' height and genes do play a major role in it. Still you can do some yoga and aerobics which do increase secretion of growth hormone thus helping in height increment. Have a high protein and high calcium diet also.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
