A static, non-progressive lesion in the brain is the underlying cause of cerebral palsy, a pediatric neurological disorder affecting children. Children with this disease will continue to experience its effects throughout their lives.  A multi-centric team strategy is necessary. The majority of cases of causal events happen during the first two years of a child's life. Due to weak muscles, poor coordination, and overly tense muscles, a kid with CP struggles to carry out their daily activities. The most common cause of cerebral palsy in children is stress, which has negative effects on their environment, development, growth, and the people around them. The purpose of this research is to provide some preliminary evidence that yoga, particularly the relaxation techniques used in yoga, can help alleviate some of the tension that parents of children with cerebral palsy experience.
