In this short feature we are introduced to the work of Madame Bergman Österberg (1849-1915) the founder of the first Physical Training college in the UK.
Madame Bergman Österberg’s holistic model of teaching, involving anatomi, outdoors gymnastics and healthy food as well as a mix of sports, inspired the agenda for Physical Education Training for decades to come.
She was also an inspiring women’s rights advocate and one of the people behind the design and creation of the gymslip that came to liberate Victorian women from playing games in corsets and long dresses.
She further created a whole new profession for women as physical education instructors, giving her female students the opportunity to be financially independent.
Next year (2015) commemorates the centenary of her death.
