As if you weren’t already crushing on Canada’s near-perfect Prime minister, this photo of Justin Trudeau practicing mayurasana (peacock pose) on an assembly room table, no less, is enough to give you the steams, or at least double check that your passport’s valid. Should we be surprised by this young buck’s (moose’s?) agility and skill? His wife, First Lady Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, also happens to be a yoga teacher so it’s likely they even practice together. Maybe they even met at yoga class?? OK, now we’re dreaming. Why this pic from 2013 is suddenly resurfacing is unknown—blame it on the political circus currently playing out in the U.S.? But, really, is anyone complaining? Here’s the original, so far as we know.

By the way, have you tried mayurasana? Not an easy pose, but an impressive one to pull out at a party, or a government function, apparently. Don’t worry, he’s also a yogi of the people and can bark up a mean tree pose, too.
Bonus: The maple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Here’s Justin Trudeau’s father, former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau taking the same pose years before, via Refinery29.
Meanwhile, candidates for president of the United States are busy making jokes and ruffling feathers, in a different way. We’ll miss you, Obamas.
