Nice progress! Training your dog yourself will have a lot of rewards and bonuses that sending her away to boot camp would not have given you guys. You are learning how to communicate clearly, are having fun together, working towards a goal, and bonding during the training. You would have missed out on all these great brags.
Don't think of Xena as being stubborn - think in terms of her needing clear lines of communication from you: a clear Yes! Good girl, and a clear "No! There are clear and immediate negative consequences to this action", which is where the prong collar comes in.
Keep up the good work!
