A holistic approach to coaching, supporting and empowering

Welcome to Perrin Wellness and Performance. 

Hello and welcome! My name is Emily and I am so glad you are here. I am a former DI athlete, former DI coach and current Mindfulness and Performance Coach.  I am also a Social Worker and Mental Health therapist who is passionate about helping people from all walks of life be the best they can be.

The foundation of my work is  connecting with people in ways that help them gain new insight, build resiliency and then feel empowered to get a little better at navigating this crazy thing called life. 

Here at Perrin Wellness and Performance, I believe that the healthiest you is the most successful you.

More About Me

It is my honor to partner with athletes, coaches and sport organizations through Mindfulness, Mental Health and Resiliency work. Here is what I aim to do through my work:   


  • Create connection for athletes, coaches and sport organizations rooted in inclusion, authenticity, empathy and compassion.  

  • Facilitate spaces where education, awareness and curiosity can take place around mental health, mindfulness and resiliency.

  • Empower and support athletes, coaches and sport organizations to use their insight, learning and connection to access both individual and collective all encompassing health and success.

There is no doubt that our work together has allowed me to take my game to another level, and helped me learn to work with my inner dialogues. I would highly recommend Emily for any athlete.”

"Having known Emily for the past 5 years, I can not express enough how grateful I am to not only work with her, but be connected to her. Outside of being my go to person in the Mindfulness space and representing her work in my events and business Lax Lab - Mission Primed, she has helped me as an athlete and person immensely. Throughout my career, she has been a consistent voice in guiding me. Not only has she helped me navigate some of my toughest moments, but she has helped me develop holistically as a human. Specifically, Emily has expanded my knowledge in the space of nervous system health, recovery and stress management, as well as breathwork. I am grateful to call her a colleague, friend, and mentor."

“Emily Perrin took over as our Duke Baseball Team Yoga Instructor in August of 2019. Just a few months later we added in a Mindfulness Training Program to her work with our guys. The impact on our program has been dramatic. Emily’s experience as a former D1 student-athlete provided instant credibility with our guys. That said the heart and soul she puts into our program has endeared her even more to our athletes. Our guys see her as a mentor, a resource, and a sounding board. The skillset they have learned from the Wellness Performance Program has allowed our guys to become more mindful competitors; better able to commit to the moment by learning to manage distractions and overcome adversity. I am grateful for the role that Emily has played and continues to play in developing our guys, not only as athletes but as people.”
