How do double bonds affect hybridization?

Double bond is basically a sigma bond and pi bond. The sigma bond is usually a hybridized orbital but pi bonds can only be between p orbitals, and not between hybridized orbitals.

So if double bonds are both sigma and pi bonds, is it in hybridized orbital or between pi orbitals?

What do you mean they are found between the p orbitals? Also, what about d orbitals then?

A sigma bond is formed by using an sp or sp2 hybrid orbital while pi bonds are formed using unhybridized p-orbitals
