Discover HEIMAT by Waris Dirie

In the heart of Paris

High class fitness and all forms of living well. It sets the stage by boldly redefining what a members-only club can and should be. With no better place than the center of the French capital to introduce this all-new concept, HEIMAT by Waris Dirie is a labor of love that’s meant to be shared and invites women to be themselves.

HEIMAT by Waris Dirie is located in the former Musée Dapper, a historic building dating back to 1855 in the 16th arrondissement, formerly part of the Village de Passy. Known for its African art, we continue the museum’s history by embedding works by contemporary female artists from Africa and the diaspora into the studio’s unique style.


Redefining the fitness lifestyle, HEIMAT by Waris Dirie welcomes those seeking an exclusive fitness experience combined with the ease and comfort of everyday living. You'll find the best machines, with the latest equipment, and be offered a wide selection of numerous classes and workouts. Like no other place before it, this private members club – with it’s focus on proud female fitness – features an impressive environment dedicated to invigorating you in your pursuit of well being at all times.


Whether you are powering down after your workout or indulging in a much-needed day of wellness, it is essential to address the challenges of life by nurturing your body, mind, skin and soul. To do this, it is necessary to focus on recovery – our wellness area is a place that will leave you feeling recharged and balanced, inside and out. Relax in our Jacuzzi, increase your well-being in our sauna and come to rest in our relaxing area.


Nourish your body and curiosity with a harmonious experience that combines rich flavours and diverse textures. Our healthy and light snack options revitalise without weighing you down – a great way to finish your workout after a cool-down. Loaded with vitamins, minerals and superfoods, our invigorating juices and delicious smoothies will make you feel great. They can also be enjoyed on the way home and are bound to leave you coming back for more.


We present the first place where sport and art participate: we understand fitness as culture and create an inspiring place, which focuses on a high-quality training concept and simultaneously inspires through art, design, music and events. In order to keep the spirit of the historical background of the building, which we want to continue with exhibited art from female artists with roots from Africa and Diaspora. We also want to create a place to connect, learn and feel good through regular events and exciting lectures, where women can build a community.
