In Tears of the Kingdom, it costs four Light of Blessing from Shrines to upgrade either your hearts or stamina.

Once you do that, you will need to go to Lookout Landing and go to the underground bunker at the center of town. From there, a hole will be opened in the wall. Go into the small hole and break the rocks down on the right side. Once you are all the way through, you will meet the Horned Statue and be able to respec your hearts and stamina.
