About Oreet

The Founder of The SharQui Workout®

“My mission is to help you feel good and realize your greatest potential.”


Hi I’m Oreet. I’m a NYC native who now resides in Philly, with my hubby and 2 kids. I have over 20 years of experience in fitness and dance, and grew up with Yemeni folk and Oriental dance. I developed SharQui in 1998 from my own knowledge of fitness, bellydance and contemporary dance and I’m so thrilled to see how much it’s grown – and I have YOU to thank!

One of my passions is educating men and women to realize their fitness potential as well as mentoring instructors to become certified in the SharQui format. My other passion is educating the world about Jewish Mizrahi dance and its relevance in Arabic culture and dance.

You can catch me teaching LIVE in the SharQui Virtual Studio at www.sharqui.com,  mentoring potential instructors in the Online SharQui Instructor Training at www.teachsharqui.com, and on my videos on demand at www.sharquitv.com.
