Static Standing Gong within internal martial arts (xingyi, tai chi, bagua and yiquan) falls under the umbrella of Qigong, that is, the work of energy cultivation using the mind or intention.  These include Holding the Energy Ball in front of the lower abdomen, Holding the Tree or the more demanding Santi Posture for kung fu.
