I've just been wondering if any women out there find it hard or unatural keeping thier center and focus in the hara, or lower abdomen.
Not at all.
I think it would be easier for women to 'find' their center based on what Janet Rosen said - that women tend to carry their weight lower as compared to men who carry their weight in their shoulders.
This fact is compensated for in many activities done by men and women. Probably also why it is hard for women to learn 'male' dominated sports. But this is another topic.
