##standing up for [[kriyat hatorah]] if the rabbi of the shul doesn't do so,<Ref>Rabbi Schachter ("Inyonei Krias HaTorah" min 55) stated that standing for kriyat hatorah where the shul Rabbi doesn’t do so is yuhara. He explained that it is yuhara to be stricter than one’s rabbi in his presence. In this vein, Mishna Brurah 63:6 writes that it is yuhara to be strict about something which is accepted as permitted and it is even worse to do so in front of one's rabbi. Halacha Brurah 141:4 cites Kol Eliyahu 1:5 who holds that standing for kriyat hatorah when the entire congregation doesn't do so is yuhara, but quotes Petach Dvir 146:3 who disagrees that it isn't yuhara since it is a dispute if one should stand. Halacha Brurah concurs with the Petach Dvir.</ref>
##wearing [[tefillin]] for [[mincha]],<ref>Rav Schachter stated ([[Introduction_to_Yuhara| Halachipedia Article 5780]]) that wearing tefillin during mincha in a place where that isn’t the practice is not right. Igrot Moshe OC 4:34 writes that someone who comes from a place where they do wear tefillin at mincha and goes to a shul where they don’t it isn’t yuhara since people know he is from another community. He implies that if the person comes from a community that doesn’t wear tefillin at mincha it is yuhara. Also, Biur Halacha 37:2 s.v. mitzvatan cites the Gra that wearing tefillin all day could be yuhara but one could wear just the tefilin shel yad under one's sleeve so it isn’t noticeable. See Keter Rosh n. 15 who quotes the Gra as saying that it isn’t yuhara to wear tefillin all day since it is the primary halacha. Rav Moshe Feinstein (Mesoret Moshe v.1 p. 24) thought that quote of the Gra wasn’t accurate. </ref>
##wearing [[Rabbenu Tam tefillin]],<ref>Shulchan Aruch O.C. 34:3 writes that it is forbidden to wear tefillin of Rashi and Rabbenu Tam because of yuhara. That is also the opinion of Mishna Brurah 34:16 even if some people do it; however, Aruch Hashulchan 34:5 writes that since in some countries it is common to wear them it isn’t yuhara anymore. Rav Schachter ([[Introduction_to_Yuhara| Halachipedia Article 5780]]) agrees with the Aruch Hashulchan. Rav Ovadia Yosef (Yabia Omer OC 1:3:6, Halacha Brurah 34:1) similarly holds that once the world was exposed to the Arizal’s torah who bolstered the importance of Rabbenu Tam tefillin it isn’t yuhara anywhere. Additionally, some poskim say that it is only an issue of yuhara if one wears both simultaneously. See the [[Rabbenu_Tam_Tefillin#Who_Should_Wear_Rabbenu_Tam_Tefillin.3F]] page for details. </ref>
## and making publicly noticeable hand motions while davening [[Shemona Esrei]], such as raising one's hands above one's head.<ref> Shulchan Aruch Hamidot v. 1 p. 130. He is based on numerous examples of where doing a strange behavior in Shemona Esrei is yuhara (Shulchan Aruch O.C. 90:24, 95:3, 123:3, 127:1).</ref>
