Weekly Classes

Project Active offers a variety of beginner friendly weekly classes which are all held on, or close to, campus. As part of our commitment to provide an inclusive environment and to help break down barriers to participation, we offer women only and postgraduate only classes as part of our weekly class timetable. All of our classes offer a relaxed and social environment to make new friends.
