About the Founder

Founder of Phoenix Yoga and Meditation, Dr. Pauline Lucas, has been a single mother for many years and knows a thing or two about stress and the negative effects it has on every aspect of life. This understanding comes not only from her personal experience-juggling childcare and household responsibilities and a busy career, but also from the 30 +years of working in healthcare and wellness with thousands of clients and patients. Through trial and error, and much study and practice, she has learned-and continues to learn-how to live a balanced and productive life with many demands placed on her time.

“My greatest joy is to help people connect with their own inner wisdom, and teach them to trust and express their true nature in all aspects of life. I teach my clients the tools to de-stress, and I support them in their healing and life transformation — especially when they are facing difficult circumstances. I know how to guide them because I made the journey myself.”
