Growing Taller

How tall are you? I'm now 5 feet, 6 5/16 inches. I used to get measured at 5'7". During yoga today I felt my spine lengthen ... hmmm. I've heard about people "growing taller" after doing yoga, not that they end up taller than their "proper" height but more that they regained their natural height once their spine straightened properly again. So I'll be tracking to see if I do indeed get a bit taller as I get back into my daily yoga routine. Are you currently shorter than your "one time top height"?

My doctor just measured me and said I was 5' 5 3/4". I'd stopped doing yoga for a while. I'm curious if they just didn't measure me accurately (the nurse seemed in a rush) or if I was slouching, or if I really did shrink that much. I'll do some tests at home!
