Walking into Project You, there is an immediate sense of calm and relaxation.

The scent of lavender diffuses the air, a soundtrack of New Age music plays quietly in the background and the room is lit by a Himalayan salt lamp.

It’s the kind of environment Kelley Gillaspy wants her clients to experience and benefit from on their journey to better health, wellness and happiness.

Gillaspy is the owner of Project You, a new yoga studio and wellness center at 209 E. Second St., between CrossFit Seymour and Seymour Tire and Service in downtown Seymour.

She also serves as an instructor, teaching classes on restorative/gentle yoga, which focuses on breathing, stretching, balance and core strength.

Project You is much more than yoga, however, Gillaspy said.

She recently added a clinical side to the business, bringing in Lindsey Stauffer, a chiropractor from Michigan, to set up shop and provide the community with another choice for improved health and wellness.

Stauffer specializes in applied kinesiology, which is basically holistic health care, she said. It’s treating the chemical, structural and emotional aspects of health to determine the root cause or issue, she added.

Although she has never owned her own business, Gillaspy’s experience in public health administration and her passion for yoga are what she’s relying on to make Project You successful — that and her clients.
