Gwen is passionate about linking the body, mind, spirit, and the Twelve Step recovery process through the 5,000-year-old practice of yoga. She founded Yoga4Sobriety in 2013 upon discovering a missing physical component in her own recovery. “I live by the steps in my life,” says Gwen. “I became aware of the physical impact of depression, anxiety, and stress in my body. Once I learned how energy affects and impacts the body and recovery, I was inspired to share it.”

Gwen brings the language and principles of the Twelve Step recovery program into the physical practice of yoga. She teaches students how to breathe while releasing tension from the body, deepening the connection to a “Higher Power” (Spirit) and walking the path of recovery.

About Gwen Rebbeck


Hotel Bocas del Mar

Replenish your body and soul in Panama’s tropical sunshine. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of our water’s edge setting.

Bocas del Mar Hotel in Chiriqui is a stunning boutique hotel with modern, luxury features. In a privileged coastal location on the mainland at Boca Chica, it is perfectly positioned for a completely relaxing vacation. In 2019 we were voted Top Hotel in Panama in the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards.

Hotel accommodations are in twenty large, contemporary-style bungalow guest rooms. All rooms are set in tropical gardens alongside the glistening blue water; open your drapes each morning and the Pacific Ocean is there to greet you!

Here your day can be as chilled or as adventurous as you want it to be. Bathe in our two beautiful inviting infinity-style pools, sun yourself on our wide terraces or small private cove, or let us take care of you in our stylish restaurant and bar. And all the time you’ll be taking in the gorgeous surrounding views of the sailboats on the water and the islands beyond.

The Gulf of Chiriqui area enjoys a tropical climate and average daytime temperatures all year round of 82º Fahrenheit (28º C), with slightly cooler temperatures at night. The average humidity is 70%. Rainfall is much lower than the rest of the country meaning we have more hours of sunshine per day. Between December and April there is virtually no rain. The area is totally hurricane free- this is a destination to vacation in all year round. 

We have an open-sided massage studio for optional wellness treatments and covered yoga deck over the water (see below). Also a petanque french ball game court and golf driving range for courtesy guest use. Also kayak use is included as a courtesy for TripTribe groups.

My yoga retreat, As Above, So Below, was fantastic. Our "tribe leaders" Tra and Cat were fantastic and worked very hard to make sure that everyone was enjoying themselves. They coordinated the yoga planning, accommodations, meals and activities for our group of 15. They left no stone unturned and I would not hesitate to join them again.

Sometimes plans change. We get it. That's why Trip Tribe offers a full refund if you meet any of the following criteria: (a) Your trip is over 240 days away OR (b) You booked within the last 30 days and your trip is still over 90 days from the start date. All payments except your deposit are refundable if your trip is more than 180 days away. If you do not meet any of these criteria, your booking is not eligible for a refund.


Trip Tribe requires only a deposit to hold your spot. Your balance will be paid in automatic monthly installments until full payment is due.


Trip Tribe makes it easy for you and your friends to book a room together. All you need is their email address.


While you can always book a private room with your guest, if you select a shared room, you'll be able to request a roommate after you place your booking.


Booking a shared room is cheaper and way more fun than booking your own private room. We’ll be sure to match you with someone awesome.
