Reflexive verbs

Mi alzo
Mi rilasso

Reflexive verbs are verbs such as lavarsi to wash yourself, which consist of a reflexive pronoun and the verb
(io) mi lavo I wash myself

These verbs are conjugated normally. You can recognize the conjugation class (-are, -ere or -ire) by the ending:
lavarsi = lavare + si

In Italian there are many reflexive verbs which are not reflexive in English
(io) mi alzo I get up
(io) mi rilasso I relax
