I Will Survive: A Playlist to Rock Your Root Chakra.

The body never lies. ~ Martha Graham

The primary concern of the root chakra is survival.

The root’s issues also include anicca, a.k.a. impermanence, clinging versus letting go, security and safety versus fear of abandonment. This chakra governs reflexes, instincts and digestive functions. A healthy root chakra lends itself to one’s overall sense of well-being and vibrant energy. An unhealthy first chakra can cause feelings of fear, insecurity and powerlessness.

This playlist will rock your root chakra!

Please share your favorite root chakra song in a comment, if so inspired.

1. Ganesh is Fresh by MC Yogi

According to the Vedic texts of ancient Hinduism, Ganesh the Elephant God is the ruler of muladhara (“root”) chakra. This fabulous tune for an upbeat yoga practice tells Ganesh’s life story.

Of course, you could go for the original Gloria Gaynor disco version.

The root chakra’s color is flaming red.
