Bio

Munah Hayes is the creator of Munahology, a health and wellness approach that explores alternative methodologies to healing.  The program entails guided nutrition plans that are similar to Ayurvedic theories, different styles of fitness programs that are tailored to the needs of the individual person, behavioral and emotional surveillance and counseling and a support team that is trained to encourage its clients to put forth a spirit of excellence in all endeavors of life.  

Ms. Hayes is a graduate of the Yoga Teacher Training Program at Ramapo College in Mahwah, New Jersey.  Also, a Zumba instructor, she was first introduced to yoga when a student of hers challenged her to a week trial of hot yoga.  She recognized an immediate difference in her posture, breathing pattern, and mental clarity that she decided to adjoin it to her tactic for healing. 

Her latest endeavors have been creating 6-week Health and Wellness Programs that are geared towards observing and creating movement and nutrition classes for adults ages 20-50 with Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Down Syndrome, teenagers aged 12-15 that reside at the Morris County Youth Shelter, and instructing intergenerational yoga classes at Spring Hills Assisted Living Facility in Morristown with the residents and children of Zufall’s Yogini class.

This program is supported by the Friends of the Morristown & Morris Township Library.

Anniversary Program

100 Years of the 1917 Wing: The Library Speakeasy


Friday October 21, 2016
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
To kick off the 100th anniversary of our ‘Willis Wing’, the library will host a ‘Speakeasy’ reception! Join us as we reopen tonight for this special event featuring a disc-jockey spinning Victrola shellac records, a dance instructor providing lessons on 1917-era dances, an antique photo booth (with a modern twist), food, drink and more! This event is for our patrons aged 21 years and over.

Those wishing to come in period costume are encouraged, but not required.  Copies of the library’s 100th anniversary calendar will be available for sale. The secret word for entry is “Eagle,” but no bootlegging will be necessary!  Please come and enjoy the ambiance of what the library might have felt like during December 1917, when its doors were first opened.

Photo of Phonograph DJ MACPhonograph DJ MAC will be our Progressive Era disc-jockey!  He provides two period disc phonographs and plays 78’s circa 1900-1929 for his engaging musical experience. A unique entertainment alternative, the music he plays ranges from ragtime to dance bands, instrumentalists to songsters. Visually fascinating and very entertaining, the presentation creates a wonderful atmospheric ambiance. As host of WFMU Radio's Antique Phonograph Music Program since 1995, MAC is an expert on this period of culture and music, where he spins 78s and cylinders played on actual period-reproducing devices.

A dance instructor will also be on hand to provide basic period step lessons throughout the party.

Library Centennial LogoHas it really been 100 Years?

In 1916, the cornerstone of a new library building was laid along Miller Road and South Street, overseen by local philanthropist Grinnell Willis after a disastrous fire that burned the Library & Lyceum just blocks away.  Thus, we are spending a year celebrating our building’s 100th anniversary!  Although Library service in Morris Township and Morristown actually started right after the Revolutionary War (and continued with the Library and Lyceum throughout the 19th Century), our current “old wing” of the library dates to its grand opening in October of 1917.  Join us as we host a whole year of programs-sponsored generously by the Friends of the Library-that are tied into our anniversary and celebrate all sort of things that are 100 years old!
