I would think that your pro should have a lot better idea of what you need to do than we would. He could have reasons for standing closer or farther, based on what you are doing, that we wouldn't know about.
Moe Norman stood about as far away from the ball as he could stand and Jim Furyk stands about as close to the ball as he can stand. Not a chance I would feel comfortable with either of those but it worked for them.
If I had to give a guideline it would be to have the left arm hanging somewhere between vertical and extended a couple of inches toward the ball.
