It is related to internal martial art 内家拳.  Taichi 太極拳 and Baguazhang 八卦掌(Eight Trigram Fist) are also famous internal martial arts.  They are sometimes called soft style.  

Another style is external martial art 外家拳, the hard style.
Martial arts which emphasize mostly on physical training, building muscles and strengthening bones, are called external martial art.  

Internal martial arts emphasize on mind training 内功 to cultivate internal power 内勁.  The basic Xingyiquan trainings are Zhuang gong 樁功(standing still) and practicing Five Element Fists 五行拳 and Twelve Animals Fists 十二形拳.  Also practice sequences such as Five element Linked forms五行連環拳, Eight Forms Set 八式拳, Twelve Flooding Punches 十二洪捶, and etc. 
After decades of training when form and mind are harmonized, you will be able to Fajing發勁 ( powerful fist without using muscle force), transform Qi into strong force like explosion 爆炸力.
