What Is ‘Fizzy Yoga’? All About The Practice Kim Cattrall Says Saved Her Life

Physiyoga, nicknamed 'fizzy yoga' by the 'Sex and the City' star, is a mix of physical therapy and yoga. Diana Zotos, Kim Cattrall's New York-based yoga instructor, explains how the practice helps realign the body and prevents injuries.

“Sex and the City” star Kim Cattrall might owe her figure to cardio, but she says physiyoga is the workout that saved her life.
A blend of physical therapy and yoga — which the 56-year-old actress nicknamed “fizzy yoga” — the practice is designed to heal and prevent injuries by restoring natural alignment in the body.

“When I meet someone for the first time, I do a physical therapy evaluation,” New York-based yogi Diana Zotos, who introduced Cattrall to physiyoga, told the Daily News.
“Then we customize a yoga program around that. It targets deficits, will strengthen muscles that are weak and stretch muscles that are tight, while focusing on the core.”

Zotos, a trained physical therapist for seven years, became a certified yoga instructor in 2009. Her physiyoga classes, which also include meditative breathing, are one on one and hands on. She began working with Cattrall about a year ago.
The British-born actress, currently in London for the three-month run of Tennessee William’s play, “Sweet Bird of Youth,” recently credited physiyoga with “saving” her during the grueling performance schedule. (MORE)
