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.

Mondays at 6:00 PM starting October 01, 2018 until December 17, 2018


Burying Ground

Digging around the 300 Year-Old Whippany Burying Yard


Monday October 22, 2018
7:00 PM
Our speaker, Michael Czuchnicki, will explore the history of the Whippany Burying Yard, a “hidden,” historic gem of Northwest New Jersey. The two acre graveyard, established in 1718 and containing 450 gravestones, marks its 300th anniversary this year.

The Whippany Burying Yard contains the first known grave of the region and was the site of its first school and church. The burying yard clearly tells a story of important elements of the growth and greatness of our early republic - geography, resources, life, law, war, and especially people.  The story begins 15,000 years BC and shows how Whippany was born and became important. The burying yard is listed on the State and National Historic Registers of Historic Places and includes exceptional examples of 18th century carver’s art.
