Video is here. I'm guessing tai chi, but I have never seen that specific maneuver. If you know of any good videos or web pages with related moves that also would help. Thank you!

It doesn't look like any part of the Yang-style Short Form, which is what most folks learn. It could be a Chen-style pose, but my recollection is that Chen-style is a lot more active and explosive.

My guess would be that he's doing qi gong exercises.

Not Tai Chi as I've ever seen it. I would guess: Simply balancing.

Coordination excercises done on one leg is fairly common among hockey players and other athletes who twisting stuff on a running leg.

It actually looks like the balance work in P90x.
