Zhan Zhuang is a type of Chi Kung involving static poses.  Instead of the movements being outwardly visible, the practitioner stands like a tree and allows the body to open up from the inside.  This practice is challenging at first, but with patience, it is profoundly effective for energizing the body and mind.

Hosted by Corey Hess, a former Zen monk who has been doing Standing Awareness for twenty years. He now lives in Langley, Washington, with his wife and three daughters, where he teaches meditation and has a private practice helping clients with embodiment and healing.  Here is a link to a blog post about it: https://zenembodiment.com/2018/10/31/zhan-zhuang-standing-like-a-tree/
