A Westport yoga studio is planning a yoga fundraising event in Southport on Friday evening, Dec. 21 to benefit needy Bridgeport women and families who are battling cancer.

"Solace in Solstice" is planned at 6:30 p.m. at CT Challenge, the cancer survivor center at 250 Pequot Ave. in Southport.

The evening will include 108 sun salutations, meditative yoga practice, live music, wine and chocolate, according to M3Yoga, the event sponsor.

The registration fee is $35, and the sponsor has suggested an addition $25. All proceeds from fees and donations will go to the nonprofit CT Challenge for distribution to needy Bridgeport residents, according to Merri Micale Mueller, proprietor of M3Yoga.
