Why do I need “relaxation” during yoga?

What is “Relaxation?”

You may wonder why “relaxation” is identified as a specific part of yoga. Don't we all know how to relax already? In yoga, relaxation is the way you clear your mind of everyday thoughts and distractions. Before you begin, it readies you for the practice. When you relax between series of postures, it allows you to pause and re-energize before the next series. At the end of your session, yoga helps you to prepare for returning to everyday life. I've found that the “relaxation” during my yoga practice often carries into my other daily activities. I'm more calm and self-assured; little difficulties and distractions don't bother me.
