Nope its genes mostly. Some medical conditions can affect height. Im 5"2 my father was 6"10(at 18) and my mother was 5"10(at 14)- because I had failure to thrive as a baby. Unless you have tall genes chances are that you wont be much taller than you are now. Yoga will help your back and therefore make you look a few centermetres taller but it wont make you grow.

It's not possible to force your body into a certaion shape, unless that is smaller, but even that is unhealthy. At 12, I think you are quite tall for your age as it is, but it completely depends on your genes as to how tall you are when you stop growing! Even if you don't grow THAT tall then you can still wear heels, which I would prefer to be able to do rather than being my height of 5'6'', and I am 16. x
