I understand the struggle, being a Type 9 myself. Meditation alongside yoga has enhanced my self-awareness and helped me assert myself in situations where I typically wouldn't. Sharing your experiences can be very empowering.

First off, congratulations on finding a method that helps you find your balance while navigating through a world that sometimes seems geared towards aggressive assertiveness. Not every personality type is naturally assertive, and that's totally okay. Yoga is an excellent choice because it provides a holistic approach toward wellness. It does not only kick-start your physical well-being, but it also boosts your mental resilience. This practice encourages mindfulness and introspection which can help initiate the development of your inner voice. It indeed works on the mind-body connection aspect as well. I'd also recommend integrating meditation and breath-work into your daily routine, if you haven't already. They can assist in enhancing your focus, clarity, and awareness, assisting in self-expression. Remember, your voice doesn't necessarily have to be loud or forceful, it just needs to be authentic and true to you. Keep practicing and continue finding your balance. Yoga is ultimately a journey, not a destination. Keep us updated on your progress.

It's great to hear about your journey as a Type 9 and your successful use of yoga for achieving balance. The world really does place a lot of value on assertiveness, which can be tough for personalities that lean towards peace and harmony like us. Finding your voice is so crucial in your personal and professional development and it's interesting how you've turned to yoga as a way to cultivate that. It can help in tuning into your inner self and embracing your natural strengths. Yoga truly supports a person's introspection and nurtures their growth in so many ways. Thanks for sharing your experience; it might inspire others who face similar challenges to try yoga for personal growth and assertiveness.
