About Yoga Therapy Bar

The owner and provider at Yoga Therapy Bar, Nekita Sullivan
Yoga Therapy Bar is proud to introduce you to the owner Dr. Nekita Sullivan

Dr. Nekita Sullivan opened Yoga Therapy Bar as a PHYSICAL THERAPY, therapeutic yoga, Pilates studio to provide holistic health and wellness services. She has 20 plus years of experience treating youth, adults, seniors, athletes, esports athletes, and those with special needs (including autism spectrum disorder). This therapeutic specialty is customized to improve physical and mental health and wellness.  She is also manual physical therapist that believes in the healing power of "touch." She is a proud SC native, MUSC & Clemson Alumna thrilled to be reunited with her Clemson family. Nekita is a Doctor of PHYSICAL THERAPY, Certified Yoga & Pilates Teacher, Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider, Certified Hand Therapist, Certified Health Education Specialist, and Esports Health Performance Institute Certified Provider. 

Dr. Sullivan worked in the traditional model of healthcare. The typical experience for patients included: waiting several weeks to start due to insurance authorization and documentation going through multiple administration channels, being seen with 2 to 3 other patients simultaneously, talking to the therapist while they spent most time on the computer, being charged $50 copays for treatments 2 to 3 times a week totaling approximately $100 to $150 per week for 6 to 8 weeks totaling $1200, receiving unexpected bills in the mail as insurance denies paying for some services, being discharged before injury resolution because insurance limited the number of visits, not being able to receive holistic or other treatments that aren't reimbursed by insurance, receiving treatment for one injury at a time, being passed off to other therapists or assistants, and more.

In order to provide the VIP care to her guests and customers, Dr. Sullivan uses the direct model. The direct model allows her to: schedule timely without a prescription, spend a full hour 1 on 1 and answer questions, not pass off to assistants, treat multiple injuries simultaneously, communicate directly via email, provide video or PDF format home exercise programs, utilize multiple treatment methods, and offer a flat fee per visit or package. Guests and customers get the VIP care that they deserve!

An unexpected side-effect of Dr. Nekita's business ownership includes public speaking. She has received many requests to share her story as a small business owner that pivoted and survived during the Covid-19 pandemic. Her story was featured in USA Today, Greenville News, WYFF TV, Fox News, and in the article "The Great Pivot: US Women and Small Business Owners during Covid. She has delivered key notes for Clemson University's Women in Leadership Conference and Benedict College Women's Business Center Inaugural South Carolina Business Summit. She has also had the privilege to speak to: the Harvard Business School Association of Boston, Medical University of South Carolina (Charleston), Converse University, Autism Society of Greater Phoenix, Information Governance World Expo, SC Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association, and more.
