    I introduced five Tibetan exercises into the group as a way to relax children. My experience from kindergarten shows that children are increasingly prone to stress. They are more restless and they give up their activities quickly. In addition, children are unable to choose a toy and when they do, they soon take a different one. The playroom lacks relaxation and thus I decided to offer them something new and interesting. The theoretical part provides a description of stress and reactions to it and touches on the causes of stress in children in order to identify their message. It is advisable to find a way to help children cope with stressful situations. The main purpose of relaxation is to take care of the entire body, which both adults and children need. To this end, I pointed to the significance of relaxation for children. Tibetan exercises are one of the relaxation techniques; although they may be less visible than yoga, the two originate from a similar source. The thesis describes the energy flow through the body and underlines the importance of breathing. As soon as thoughts are focused on breathing, the body relaxes automatically, followed by exercises and their positive effects. The empirical part of the thesis presents how five Tibetan Rites were carried out with kindergarten children aged 5–6 years, including parallel activities to acquaint them with the foreign culture and the functioning of their body (how muscles and breathing work). If we present new things to children in an interesting way, that will improve our cooperation and harmonise interpersonal relations.
