Concentration also goes hand-in-hand with relaxation. Almost everyone keeps tension in many parts of their body. In addition to hindering flexibility, tension (which is a tightening of the muscles) uses up energy which could otherwise be spent in optimizing one's endurance, particularly when one is competing at peak levels. Yoga teaches specific techniques for both recognizing and releasing tension.
