Is Subhadra Incarnation of YogaMaya?

Subhadra is the incarnation of Yogamaya . She is the sister of Krishna and Balarama, wife of Arjuna, and mother of Abhimanyu. She is the daughter of Vasudeva and his second wife Rohini Devi. She is much younger to Krishna and Balarama as she was born after Vasudeva was released from Kamsa's prison.

Subhadra is one of the three deities worshipped at the Jagannath temple at Puri, along with her brothers Krishna (as Jagannatha) and Balarama (or Balabhadra). One of the chariots in the annual Ratha Yatra is dedicated to her.

What is Maya ? It is the Lords Power of illusion . There are two kinds of māyā -Yogamāyā and Mahāmāyā. Mahāmāyā is an expansion of Yogamāyā, and both these māyās are different expressions of the Lord's internal potencies. To give service to the Lord, yogamāyā appeared along with mahāmāyā. Mahāmāyā refers to” yayā sammohitaḿ jagat, "one who bewilders the entire material world." From this statement it is to be understood that yogamāyā, in her partial expansion, becomes mahāmāyā and bewilders the conditioned souls. In other words, the entire creation has two divisions — transcendental, or spiritual, and material. Yogamāyā manages the spiritual world, and by her partial expansion as mahāmāyā she manages the material world.
