The Honest Retreat: Yoga and Indian Cooking

4th February 2024

/ 7 hrs

Class Description

Amber Wellbeing, together with Indian Cookery tutor Sasi Krishnan, bring you a very special day retreat that combines the meditative flow of yoga with the art of Indian cooking. Picture yourself nestled in a beautiful barn setting, surrounded by nature as you dive into a day of wellness and culinary delight.


Event Highlights:

  • Yoga & Guided Meditation: Replenish your energy after the festive season with two yoga sessions; one morning winter-warming practice and one candlelit, gentle movement and relaxation session.


  • Indian Cooking Lesson: Learn the secrets of authentic Indian cuisine in a hands-on cooking workshop in the Honesty Cookery School’s beautiful kitchen. Sasi will educate you on the aromatic spices, flavours, and techniques that make Indian food so extraordinary, before we all sit down to enjoy a delicious Indian lunch.


New to yoga? New to Indian cooking? No problem! Both Naomi and Sasi welcome beginners. Naomi’s yoga will be a mixed-level session, suitable for beginners, with variations and alternatives offered where necessary. Sasi’s cooking lesson is for everyone; a perfect introduction to how to cook authentic, nutritious Indian food at home.


This is an exciting collaboration between Amber Wellbeing, Sasi Krishnan and Honesty Cookery School. The intimate setting means there are only 16 places available.

What is a Cook Together ticket?

Cook Together tickets allow an adult and a child between 10 – 18 years to book onto a course for a cheaper price. You will work together at the same workstation and produce enough food for you both to eat. This is part of our drive to encourage young people to enjoy cooking from scratch.

Can I book for a large group?

We have eight workstations and accommodate larger groups by working in pairs or small groups around each station. People often report they enjoy working in this way as it makes the event sociable and allows people to take a short break from the cooking as there are others to take over.

Who can attend these classes?

Most of our scheduled courses are for adults only. However, where you see a ‘Cook Together’ ticket offered then you can book for a place for a child over the age of 10 years with an adult.

It is also possible to book a bespoke course for children with an adult from the party remaining in charge of the group. Please make enquiries to

Do I need to be a confident cook?

We welcome people of all cooking experience and abilities. Our tutors will assess and adjust to your needs.

What if I have a food allergy or special dietary need?

Some of our courses can accommodate allergies and special dietary requirements however for others the replacement of one ingredient for another will not work. As there is such a range in what people require we request that you ask at the time of booking by emailing

What should I wear/bring with me?

All ingredients and equipment are provided, including aprons. For a cookery course we advise wearing layers as the cookery school can heat up once the ovens and hobs are on. Closed shoes are also requested for health and safety purposes and a band to tie back longer hair.

If you are attending a course that could be messy please adjust your clothing to take account of this.

We hope to make our courses as sustainable as possible and so request that customers bring containers to take home any food left over at the end of a course.
