Morning Yoga

Morning Yoga with Munah Hayes

Friday October 26, 2018
9:30 AM
Yoga in the morning at the library! Patrons will have the chance to experience the Krishnamacharya tradition of Hatha Yoga. Program held in the second floor Gallery.

Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, often referred to as “The Father of Modern Yoga,” is responsible for sharing yoga with women as ancient yoga was originally for men only. The sessions will have a vinyasa style flow that concentrates on elongating the breathing pattern, creating endurance, balance and flexibility. 

Moreover, Yoga is a healing system of theory and practice. The objective of the classes are to create Photo of yoga matsstrength, awareness, and harmony in both the mind and body. Our patrons can expect breathing and meditation in order to improve mental well-being.  Regular practice will provide mental clarity, and calmness;  increased body awareness;  relief from chronic stress patterns and sharper concentration.

Attendees should bring their own mat and their interest in learning yoga in a quiet and serene atmosphere.


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.

Fridays at 9:30 AM starting July 05, 2019 until December 27, 2019


Acting: Its Many Styles

Friday October 26, 2018
1:30 PM
Outside of informal acting tips, an actor must look for an acting technique they can trust: one that works for them internally. Some actors rely on techniques from the historic popular acting styles that have shaped this unique art form. Actor and Director Eric Hafen will explore five of the most common acting techniques that many Broadway and Hollywood stars utilize to perfect their craft.

Our presenter: Originally from Pittsburgh, PA, Eric Hafen has been in show business for over 35 years. His talents have been seen as an actor, director, producer and educator throughout New England, New York and New Jersey. He recently served as the Producing Artistic Director for the Bickford Theatre in Morristown for 17 seasons. He has also worked for other theatres in a similar capacity including; Park Performing Arts Center, Little Theatre Stage Company, Theatre at the Mount and the Six Flags Corporation.
