Heart to Heart
Authentic Expression and CommUnity Connection
Nia's original barefoot workout has been transforming bodies and lives since 1983.
Adaptable to all levels and abilities, Nia blends the joy of dance, discipline of martial arts, mindfulness of somatics, and universal spiritual principles to create transformational experiences that support physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health and well-being.
For Winalee Zeeb, dancing in oceans around the globe with dolphins is a sacred joy.

And, if there are merfolk who clammer from the soils of the earth into the waters of the deep with playful joy and abandon, then she is among them in body, mind, emotion, and spirit. The water is indeed, her second home. But when Winalee is not immersed in water, this expert in the fine art of gracious love welcomes people from around the world to her enchanting studio in Lansing, MI, called Heartdance.
Heartdance Studio is indeed a magical place where diversity, inclusivity, and authenticity each flow with mindful awareness, healing transformation, and brilliant possibility for every body who chooses to “Step In,” with Winalee during an hour of Nia. Nia is based on 40+ years of research and study in the Arts and Sciences that includes essences of martial arts, dance arts and healing arts, as well as, expertise in anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology. Winalee adds her unique wonder to that design.
There is a place in Nia for anyone who wants to live their best life.
