My Name is Luis Palmero; I co-own and operate Oxygen Yoga and Fitness in Squamish. One year ago, we decided to open in Squamish, from the moment that we started construction, Squamish community started to grow in my heart, being a business owner at first is very hard and intimidating when it comes to a community that you're not part of, nor you live in. Therefore, in the winter of 2015, I decided to move to Garibaldi Highlands. We are proud to say that Oxygen Squamish has brought many people together.
As members part of the SCC, we've attended numerous events, sponsored the Lunch with the Mayor, as well as one or two Socials. Our mission is to work within the community.
