How to migrate from a KVM virtual machine to a LXC container?

I have a virtual machine which has a hard disk drive running on an LVM volume.

I don't see how to migrate it to an LXC container without going through a traditional migration.

I saw a tutorial -"How to convert a KVM image to a LXC container ? ", but it doesn't seem to be applicable to proxmox.

Is there still a way to do it?
