Community Conversations: Nafas Fitness


Welcome to Community Conversations: Nafas Fitness! We visited with Janel Calka-Assaf, owner of Nafas in Royal Oak, to make sure that everyone is aware of what an incredible community resource she has made here!

The mission statement of Nafas is to create a fun, welcoming, nonjudgmental environment where you can dance and express your inner power, and that is certainly reflected in Janel and the community she’s built at Nafas Fitness studio in Royal Oak. Janel, Nafas owner, is also a Royal Oak resident and wanted to build her studio in this “small-town, welcoming community” where she knew her practice would thrive.

In a beautiful and serene space with dedicated parking, Nafas provides yoga, dance, and fitness classes of all types for all types. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced, young or old, you’ll feel welcome and comfortable at Nafas. Janel can usually be found either in a class, or welcoming members at the door- she and the Nafas community are kind, friendly, and always quick to offer a smile and class recommendation.
