I am Ariane Lugan, and my mission is to help you live your best life, reach an optimum health, get all the energy you need for your daily activities, feel happy in your skin, and let go of limiting -beliefs, pent-up emotions, low self-esteem.
Born and raised in the gorgeous South of France and a resident of the UK for many years, I am passionate about aliveness, vitality and joy in life, and I help women and men who are struggling with the way they feel about themselves, the way they feel in their body and their lack of energy and fulfillment, so that they can thrive and enjoy every moment of their life with this priceless inner peace that so many are desperate for.
Qualified as a Holistic Health and Nutrition Coach (Institute for Integrative Nutrition – IIN) and as a Conscious Connected Breathwork Practitioner (Alchemy of Breath), I combine these two powerful tools with my own personal journey to assist you on a deep level into health recovery on a physical, mental and emotional level for a life in balance and harmony.
A little bit about me…
Like most people in our modern western societies, from a very young age I was made to believe that the only way to go through life was to study really hard to get a good job and reach financial security. Being a good little soldier I never questioned it and did exactly as I was told. For the best part of two decades I worked as a Welding Engineer mainly for the Oil&Gas industry. From the outside I had a great life, and in some ways I really did. I always prioritised my health and wellbeing on a physical level since a very young age, always ate very healthily even if I did have a sweet tooth it was never in excess, I was always physically active through dancing and fitness (even qualified as a Fitness Instructor while in my full time engineering job), I always had a very active social life, and I travelled a lot. But deep down something felt empty, I always had a feeling of separation, I could never project myself in the future, I had no ambition for career progression in my job, and the more time was passing by, the more unhappy I was, feeling under stress and under pressure at work, and overall unfulfilled. I was realising that I could not see myself doing this job until retirement, surely there was more to life than what I was experiencing.
One fateful day I came across Therapeutic Breathwork, and this marked the beginning of my journey into self-discovery and life transformation.
Through all the sessions I attended I shedded so many layers, released so many emotions, feelings and trauma I was not even aware I had, some going all the way back to my birth, that I was able to access the biggest gift I could ever have wished for: finding myself, my true self, who I really was and what I was here to do.
It has been an intense process. I cried buckets of tears from all the emotions and feelings I had been keeping unexpressed all my life, and it gave me such clear messages about what was missing in my life and what I wanted for myself.
Following my heart and my calling to assist people with their health and wellbeing, I qualified as a Holistic Health and Nutrition Coach (with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition – IIN) and shortly after as a Conscious Connected Breathwork Practitioner. Since then I have felt fully aligned with myself, as if I had finally come home.
My Clients always describe me as being compassionate, gentle, with a calm and professional approach, and warm healing energy.
Healthy nutrition has always been a priority for me from a very young age and I have always shared my knowledge. When on a group holiday a few years ago a participant said with a lot of enthusiasm: “spend a week with Ariane and you will earn an extra 10 years of life!”
Through nutrition only I also cured myself from two chronic health conditions for which conventional medicine could do nothing.

Alchemy of Breath
I received my Breathwork Facilitator Training from Alchemy of Breath, after having had my own journey through Rebirthing to start with followed extensively by Transformational Breath. Through this extensive and unique training I learnt how to develop my felt sense, my intuition, how to hold a safe space for one to one sessions and for groups, and how to lead people into powerful and transformative experiences.
My main goals were to regain some vitality, feel less tired, improve my skin and external appearance, get rid of extra weight built up over the years, and learn how to eat more nourishing food.
Ariane was able to help me work towards my goals by reviewing my eating habits, the good and not so good ones, and advising me while still fully respecting my taste and preferences.
The most significant overall changes I have noticed have been significant weight loss in a very short period of time, a regain of vitality that has allowed me to get back to the gym, to run up the escalators in the tube, to get rid of bloating and to feel better in my clothes and my skin.
Ariane is a great listener and she also gives attention to what is not said. She is someone who made me aware of some behaviors that were preventing me from moving forward, and who never made me felt under any sort of judgment no matter what I was expressing,
I would recommend Ariane to anybody who feels they need some changes in their life, big or small, anybody who doesn’t feel right in their skin and body, and anybody who feels lost when it comes to knowing what to eat and not to eat to lose weight.
Ariane’s coaching does not stop with food, she is a real life coach and a precious support.Christine – Extra weight – Lack of Energy – Bad skin
