About

Tai Chi for Health Pittsburgh was founded in 2012 by Gurney Bolster to provide safe, accessible and effective tai chi programs to the Pittsburgh public. A Certified Instructor and Senior Trainer with Dr. Paul Lam’s Tai Chi for Health Institute, she offers Tai Chi for Health and Qigong classes for beginner and intermediate students, as well as traditional tai chi classes for advanced students. In addition to Dr. Lam’s programs, Gurney is expanding her offerings based on her training with Dr. Yang Yang’s, Center for Taiji and Qigong Studies.

Endorsed by Allegheny Health Network’s Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, Gurney runs the Tai Chi for Health program at AGH Suburban Hospital in Bellevue, and at the AHN Health + Wellness Pavilion in McMurray. In the South Hills, classes are offered at the  Bower Hill Community Church in Mt. Lebanon and the Hamilton Presbyterian Church in Bethel Park.

Classes are open to adults of all ages and abilities. The non-competitive atmosphere is inclusive and enjoyable. Gurney willingly shares her passion for tai chi, frequently giving lecture-demonstrations at health fairs, libraries and for community groups. Hoping to inspire and empower, Gurney will patiently guide you to discover the joy, wisdom and healing power inherent in this beautiful mind-body practice.
