THE MINDFUL ATHLETE
"I am a former Division I Athlete and a former Division I coach. I know better than anyone the demands and pressures placed on elite athletes. I created this platform to be a resource for athletes and coaches.
The more resources we equip our athletes with to manage both their body's AND their mind's the better. This is about setting athlete's up for success not just on the field, but in LIFE."
-Emily Perrin, CEO and Founder of Perrin Wellness and Performance

"The online/APP platform has taken our yoga and mindfulness practice to the next level. Players have twenty-four hour a day access to the content. Whether it’s restorative yoga, meditations, sleep support, etc our guys have the support they need just a click away on their mobile device."
"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.”

Hello and Welcome!
I have lived and breathed competitive sport since the day I was born. My earliest memories are heading to basketball games at the University of Virginia (Wahoowa) to cheer on my Dad who was an assistant basketball coach and Sport Psychologist. I followed in his footsteps and played DI soccer at UVA followed by 3 years of coaching collegiately at the University of Pennsylvania.
As a college coach I kept hearing from my Ivy League athletes that they really struggled to navigate the physical, mental and emotional demands of competitive sport. As a DI athlete I constantly felt like I was behind in life. I suffered from chronic anxiety and serious bouts of panic attacks that required me to be hospitalized. In an effort to pull myself out of panic and find healing, I turned to Mindfulness, Meditation, Breath Work and Yoga.
Within several months (along with a lot of additional therapy) I found that these four practices had added core skills to my life and significantly impacted how I was coping with my own anxiety and panic.
I had this epiphany.. If only I had known about these 4 practices as an athlete and as a coach! And Voila… Perrin Wellness and Performance was born!
I am a Certified Mindfulness Meditation Teacher, Certified Breath Work Coach and Registered 200 Hour Yoga Teacher. I graduated from Duke’s Integrative Health Coaching program and am currently pursuing my Master’s in Clinical Social Work at the University of Denver.
My passion is helping elite athletes gain insight and awareness into their lives. I educate and empower athletes to take control of their mind, body and emotions so that they can be successful both ON and OFF the field.
When we can navigate life more efficiently off the field we will definitely be able to navigate our performance more efficiently on the field. This is what Perrin Wellness and Performance is all about.
