Newbie Wifi Skin Question (Pyboard lite)

Wifi Skin for Pyboard: http://www.tinyosshop.com/wifi-skin-for-pyboard

So I have a pyboard lite and I was wondering if my board would work with this skin? Also I'm a little confused how it connects as I would like to use it in conjunction with a few servos and a BME280.

It connects to a UART. But instead this one, you can use any ESP8266 module. The only advantage of this module is, that it stacks nice with the Pyboard.

Thanks very much! I think I will go for that skin since it has everything preloaded so it's just a case of 'plug-in and play'.
