Thanks To SharQui – Joanne’s Story
My name is Joanne Domenici, and I have been involved in the Belly Dance world since 1974, although I did not start teaching until 2006. My classes were always well attended, but I couldn’t help but think there was a better way to teach the classes I so enjoyed.
I knew that Oreet was the person I was looking for to help me implement my original vision, as she had already done it! I made sure I was in her first west coast workshop in the summer of 2009 and became certified as a SharQuí instructor.
SharQuí – The bellydance workout® has done so much for me as well as my students and I continue to teach at the same gym using the SharQuí format. It has been a joy to be able to use the SharQuí vehicle to support students in their growth as healthy and happy human beings.
As I reach my “senior” years, it becomes more and more important to stay “young” and in shape, and to help my students do the same. I recently received some tangible proof that SharQuí is helping me do just that! I was more than pleasantly surprised when my reading for my lower spine came back in the normal range and I can only attribute this to teaching SharQui – The bellydance workout®, as I have not changed anything else substantially in my workout routine. All of the twisting plus the attention to posture surely contributed to this vast improvement.
Here’s to teaching many more years as a SharQuí instructor! Many, many thanks to Oreet for everything she has done for me!
