Okay that does seem narrow. Are you measuring from the centre of each binding? Easiest way to measure is from the same screw in each plate.

Lots of people are going super wide these days, but I'm a little more conservative. I'm 5'7" and ride with a 21.25" width.

Also, I think most people benefit from a more forward stance when first learning. You could try 0 or -3 on the back foot, and +15 or +18 on the front?
