Isometric – no movement, muscles stay the same length.

Example, staying in plank position, not moving.

Isotonic: i.e. eccentric and concentric

Eccentric muscle moves to lengthen, resisting gravity i.e. forward fold into Uttanasana.

Concentric, muscle moves to shorten, moving against gravity. Example, moving from chaturanga dandasana to plank position.
