"Sex and the City" star Kim Cattrall credits a new exercise craze, "fizzy yoga," with saving her life and helping the 57-year-old maintain her slim figure.

Cattrall says she became addicted to fizzy yoga, or physiotherapy that's infused with yoga, breathing, and mediation, while starring in Tennessee Williams' "Sweet Bird of Youth" stage show at The Old Vic in the U.K. this summer.

Fizzy yoga is described as an "innovative healing strategy that combines the hands-on qualities of a skilled physiotherapist with the holistic movement therapy of yoga to provide a comprehensive, integrated approach to healing and continued healthy living," according to BrilliantBodyPhysioyoga.com.

Cattrall praised London-based instructor Helen O'Neill for helping ease the knee pain the actress normally felt when exercising, saying the yoga guru "saved my life."

"I think Helen's really got her finger on something that women my age can use to make our lives pain-free," Cattrall told the Times of London.

Cattrall said she struggled to find a workout regimen that worked for her while starring in the "Sex and the City" TV series and films.

"I'd do massive sessions of heavy cardio before each series started and then no exercise at all during filming, [and then] I'd just collapse at the weekends," she told the Times. "As I get older, I find that cardio is less important to me. What I want to do more of is 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 [instructor] is."
