Meet Danielle…

Danielle Boyd is an entrepreneur, truth seeker, wellness leader and learning junkie. She believes in a BALANCED lifestyle, growth mindset, self-love and listening to the spirit voice. She is an adventurer, a foodie, a traveller and lover of family, friends, wine, the lake and the mountains. She is not a dietitian or a counsellor, nor is she perfect, but she does have some self proclaimed nuggets of wisdom to share. She believes in big goals and setting the bar high without losing sight of what really matters. Danielle started The Balanced Collective as a platform to share what she has learned and continues to learn with a larger community. TBC has grown into a collective of offerings that help individuals and the community find their own best versions of balanced lives. Danielle has hosted international retreats, facilitated collaborative events and workshops throughout Vancouver, taught movement for over 200 people with lululemon and works one-on-one with individuals to achieve total physical and mindful optimization through physiotherapy and wellness coaching. She connects the dots between the mind, the body and the spirit and marries the concepts of science and spirituality in all that she does.

Laura Murphy // SOULBODY

Laura guides women through their journey home to their own bodies. She enables them tune into and trust the whispers of their heart.

She believes WHOLEHEARTEDLY that we are all capable of living our wildest dreams…today, not after we retire. Our soul is constantly guiding us in the direction of our deepest desires, desires most of us aren’t even willing to speak out loud.

We have grown so disconnected from our bodies that we can’t hear the whispers of our own inner beacon. We are all capable of building a life we truly love to live, that is so in alignment with our truest self, we couldn’t imagine living any other way.

The SOULBODY journey is one that will take you to your core, your inner knowing. It requires breaking through blocks and peeling back layers of conditioning, beliefs, scar tissue, and defence. It is one of resistance, healing, clarity, and expansion; it is a journey HOME.


Laura collaborates with TBC for local events and retreats. Laura will be co-leading our next retreat in Gibsons BC.

Pamela Cochrane // Kin To You

Pamela has been a practicing kinesiologist since graduating from the University of British Columbia in 2011.

Kin To You was started in 2016 to fill a gap in the healthcare system – everyone knows it’s important to exercise, but how much? and what kind is best? and how do you do it without hurting yourself?

There is a need for educated professionals to help people in their community feel confident exercising independently without pain or injury, so Kin To You was born to fill that gap! Kin To You provides mobile exercise rehabilitation throughout Metro Vancouver. Kinesiologists specialize in soft-tissue injury (such as whiplash from motor vehicle accidents), chronic pain (fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome), disease management, and active rehabilitation. Kinesiologists are all about movement!


Pamela collaborates with TBC Mobile Health and provides mobile Active Rehabilitation and Kinesiology services all around Vancouver and beyond.
