What's all this buzz about physiyoga?

The world of celebrity gossip is abuzz after "Sex and the City" star Kim Cattrall revealed to the Times of London the workout that she uses to keep her hot 56-year-old bod in shape.

Physiyoga, or as calls it, “fizzy yoga,” is a combination of physical therapy — the treatment of pain, disease or injury by physical means, also known as physiotherapy — and yoga that helps prevent and rehabilitate injuries. It’s a one-on-one, customized practice made up of yoga poses, physical therapy adjustments, massage and meditative breathing.

Cattrall told The Times: “As I get older, I find that cardio is less important to me. What I want to do is more intense stretching. I’m not worried about injuring myself because a regular yoga instructor isn’t versed in the way of the body like a trained physio is.”

Cattrall reportedly hurt her knee and found that physical therapy alone was not enough to get it better. She turned to a physiyoga specialist in London for help and has been in love with it ever since.

We don’t blame Cattrall: If you want to be certain that you are getting the best treatment for an injury while becoming more flexible and strong, “fizzy yoga” may be a good fit for you. But beware! Find yourself a yoga instructor that is a licensed physical therapist; otherwise you could be doing more damage than good.
