Eoin Thomas began his performing career at a very young age with countless productions in his living room with his sister. In fact, a perfect day in the life of Eoin is dressing up, creating a character, and filming a show with his friends. His first professional production was as Young Abel in Stephen Schwartz's Children of Eden at age 10 at Village Theatre. [ Some day I'll find a photo of the amazing silver unitard I wore, becuase it was amazeballs. ] Village Theatre quickly became Eoin Thomas' second home. Thoughout middle school and high school, Eoin continued to study musical theatre, yoga, violin, piano, drums, guitar, as well as musical theory. Eoin Thomas was a member of Skyline High School's Concert Chorale, Vocal Jazz group, and was also a vocalist in his Lutheran Church Rock Band.

During his junior and senior years of high school, Eoin began studying college level coursework in Bellevue University's Running Start Program. (As if he wasn't doing enough already.) So, not only did he perform in every theatrical production during high school, take the "normal" school courses, but after every rehearsal was driving straight to Bellevue to take evening classes in US History, Poetry Writing, and Script Writing. Truly, it was the best decision because it allowed him to study things like math and history at a college pace. Thus, making room in his schedule for more tactical skills like Music Technology, Digital Imaging, Theatre, and IB French.

After High School, Eoin Thomas started to work for Starbucks Coffee Company where he learned to master the art of multitasking and latte art. Starbucks is the the true definiton of the word "Corporate." A company designed around a standards of service, where Eoin learned how to open a new store, close a failed location, and have a smile on his face even when pouring an americano down his shoe.

While living in Seattle, Eoin attended Cornish College of the Arts where he studied Musical Theatre with performance emphasis from 2007-2008. He continued to study voice and modern dance, paired with electives like Art History and Gender Studies. Honestly, Cornish was a wonderful school, but it was just not at all what they made it seem like during the open house. One day on a trip back from New York City for an audition, Eoin knew it was time to make the jump.

Eoin Thomas began to work at the front desk of Seven Salon in Seattle to save up for the move. The goal: work as much as you can until you raise $5,000. In fact, people often ask him "How do you just MOVE?"
Well first, 1. Buy a one way ticket.
Second, 2. replace going out with friends every night with going to the gym.
And Lastly, 3. Ask friends in that city if they know anyone that needs a roommate.


Eoin Thomas moved to New York City on May 29th, 2009, had a job interview the 30th, and started working as a front desk coordinator at Bumble and Bubmle. the next day. T'was a whirlwind of a weekend as it just so happened that on his first day of work, Eoin also met someone whose personality washed over him rather quickly leaving him feeling, well, let's just say: in need of conditioner.

Shortly after, Eoin suffered from a hamstring injury. With increasing sciatic pain, even the simplest of tasks became painful. And of course, lacking a reliable health insurance at the time, Eoin went in search of rehabilitation in eastern medicine. Having already been practicing Hatha & Vinyasa Yoga for 8 years at that point, and with the recommendation from his coworker Lisa, he took his first hot yoga class.

During Eoin Thomas's first Bikram Yoga class, he knew he wanted to teach it. Ever since Eoin was a litle kid he loved to teach [ my sister tells me that I used to teach little group exercise routines to all the neighboors before I can even remember ]. And while yoga alone didn't instantly heal his hamstring injury, it definitely taught him to slow down and find some rythym in his New York life (and yes, get super flexible).

That next fall in 2010, Eoin went to Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in San Diego, CA. And while explaining teacher training is definitely a story for a later date, it was a 3 Month intensive workshop that shaped his life forever. (and by workshop, I mean brainwashing) At the training, Eoin and 308 other trainees took two classes a day, sat in long lectures, posture clinics, anatomy trainings, and yes quite a few bollywood movies. The average day was about 19 hours of non-stop yoga therapy. And it was awesome.

Eoin's training was one of the only trainings that Bikram Choudhury taught every evening class. So, albiet it was intense at times, the trainees from San Diego were blessed with a thorough understanding of yoga therapy and how to apply what they learned into their teaching.

Let us all not forget that the reason Eoin moved to New York, was to pursue Musical Theatre. Having now gotten a little side tracked with a career in fitness in After a Hamstring injury in late Eoin has always worked hard to excel and treat every moment as an opportunity to learn. So after a hamstring injury in 2009, he absorbed as much information as possible on how to heal his injury. With an extensive history of practicing Hatha, Vinyasa Yoga for 15 years, Eoin began to practice Bikram Yoga and was certified as a teacher in Fall 2010. In 2012, Eoin continued his studies in dance at the Broadway Dance Center in a year-long training program where he concentrated in ballet and theatre dance, finishing the year with a performance as a lead in a hip-hop/contemporary piece in the student performance showcase.


Eoin continues to practice his craft, and is auditioning for theatre, dance, film and TV roles. With favorite performances including Peter (Peter Pan), Protean (…Forum), Jesus (Godspell), Ugly (Honk!) as well as singing with the Young New Yorker’s Chorus as a tenor from 2012-2013, Eoin is excited for the road ahead. Eoin is currently working on making short comedy episodes out of his apartment. To learn more about Eoin Thomas and is his escapades, check out his resumé and blog.
