During his stay in Thailand, he practiced Vipassana meditation that completely shifted his perspectives towards life.

It was when he casually walked into a yoga studio and met Javier Castro, the owner and the principal teacher at Yogashala Institute in Marbella. Motivated by a strong encouragement by his teacher, Tomas continued to practice, and went on to complete 500 hour teacher training.
