    In my thesis, I tried to explain the meaning of relaxation in our lives because of all the stress and tention we experience on every day basis. More often and at a very early stage, children also meet with stress. Nowadays, it is impossible to expect that we would be living without stress in our lives. It is important that we learn how to control stress. There are many different technics on how to control it. In the theoretical part, I described stress, its impact on human body, types and causes of stress and described how we can recognize it on kids. Adults are capable of finding solutions and help themselves, where children are not capable of doing that just yet and that is why it is very important that we help them. I continued describing the meaning of relaxation, types of relaxations and why relaxation is important for kids. Then I wrote about yoga, which is one of the relaxation technique. I wanted to know more about its old history, asanas, pranayamas, meditation and its wellbeing. In the empirical part, I researched how yoga effects the behaviour of children. I practised yoga with children and I wrote the analysis. I noticed that yoga positions, breathing techniques and relaxation have a positive effect on children’s wellbeing. They liked yoga and they became more calm, relaxed and focused. A human being can not always have the impact on the environment around him, but he can control his body, breathing, thoughts and emotions.
